Is Coffee the Secret to Lower Blood Pressure?

The world’s most popular drink is coffee. Coffee improves cardiovascular health, and one research found that persons who consume 3-5 cups of coffee daily had reduced cardiovascular risk than those who drink less. The British Coffee Association says people drink two billion cups of coffee daily…..CONTINUE READING

On the other hand, coffee may harm cardiovascular health, other studies have found. Heavy coffee drinking increased cardiovascular-related mortality in severe hypertensives. Coffee intake and blood pressure studies might lead to cardiovascular risk prevention measures.

As of recent, coffee consumption and blood pressure were examined, and drinking it lowers blood pressure in multiple ways.

The researchers examined 1972 health data from 720 men and 783 women. Participants were clinically evaluated every four years. Researchers analyzed blood pressure and coffee use. The group:

Systolic blood pressure measures heartbeat-induced arterial pressure. Systolic blood pressure increases stroke and heart disease risk. Coffee drinkers had lower systolic blood pressure than non-drinkers.

They also observed a link between drinking more cups and lower peripheral pulse pressure (PP), which monitors blood flow.

Coffee did not impact arterial stiffness, which increases the risk of cardiovascular events, dementia, and mortality.

Dr. Yu-Ming Ni, the non-invasive cardiologist at MemorialCare Heart and Vascular Institute at Orange Coast Medical Center in Fountain Valley, CA, told Medical News Today:

Coffee intake consistently lowered blood pressure, including an estimate of central blood pressure, a more trustworthy…..CONTINUE READING
