A new study suggests, drinking 3-5 cups of coffee a day may reduce the risk of developing clogged arteries, reducing the risk of a heart attack. Drinking 3-5 cups of coffee a day has been associated with less calcium build-up in the arteries. Calcium build-up is signified to be an early sign of hardening of the arteries and the risk of heart disease. The 2015 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee also recently released a report saying that the health risks of drinking that much coffee is minimal and can actually have health benefits, such as reducing risk of type 2 Diabetes.
Remember though, what you put on the coffee makes a difference! Add-ins such as whipped cream, syrups, creamers, and too much sugar can knock away the health benefits. Enjoy your cup of Joe with limited toppings in order to get the most beneficial health effects!
