Regular coffee drinkers might think they know a lot about coffee, namely that it gives them the AM boost they need to get through the day. But do you know these 3 weird facts about coffee?
Coffee Reduces the Risk of Stroke
A study published in Stroke suggested that women who drank more than one cup of coffee per day exhibited approximately a 25% reduced risk of stroke. Although the study was not done on men, there’s a great chance that men who drink coffee regularly will reduce their risk of stroke as well.
Heart Palpitations Caused by Coffee Are Not Significant
Anyone who has had too much caffeine knows that it can cause the jitters. Some people get heart palpitations, or the feeling of a fast or “skipped” heartbeat. In people with healthy hearts, these palpitations, also known as PAC’s or PVC’s, are usually of no consequence and are more annoying than anything else. Avoid drinking more than 1-2 cups of coffee a day and consider switching to decaf if you get heart palpitations that are uncomfortable.
Coffee Reduces the Risk of Type II Diabetes
Studies show that drinking four or more cups of coffee per day can reduce the risk of getting Type II diabetes by up to 50%! Chinese researchers believe this is a result of three main components, including caffeine, caffeic acid, and chlorogenic acid. Decaf works too!
