Coffee Drinks Safe for Heart

One of the concerns a lot of people if consumed coffee is a pounding heart and heart rhythm disturbances. But it was not proved.

In a study conducted Dr.Gregory Marcus, cardiologist at the University of California San Francisco, revealed that coffee and other caffeinated beverages is actually safe for the heart.

"It may be time for doctors to 'lighten' the status of coffee," said Marcus.

He said clinical recommendations on the prohibition of consuming caffeinated products regularly to prevent heart rhythm disturbances should be reconsidered.

"We do not need the consumption of chocolate, coffee and tea, which may actually have benefits for cardiovascular," he said.

During this time it is believed that early cardiac contraction, which is usually asymptomatic or cause mild symptoms such as heart palpitations, it is not dangerous. But, it turns out that condition associated with heart failure, atrial altrium and other dangerous conditions.

Coffee or other caffeine sources believed to society at large can cause strain on the heart in the form of a sense of palpitations.

To be sure, Marcus and his team studied 1,388 people with an average age of 72 years.

About 60 percent of respondents said their intake of caffeinated drinks each day. The researchers looked specifically at coffee, tea and chocolate.

The research team then measured the ventricular premature contractions and premature atrial contractions.

As a result, no differences were found in the case of heart trouble is, no matter how much coffee or tea or chocolate they consumed.

"In general, consume caffeine every day is not associated with increased ectopy or arrhythmias (heart rhythm disorder), however, has not been specifically determined safe amount consumed per day," Marcus wrote in the Journal of the American Heart Association.

People who experience symptoms such as heart palpitations after drinking coffee will usually reduce their consumption. Because it is unknown whether coffee drinking in moderation could be better.

"The consumption of regular coffee a person associated with a lower risk of developing diabetes mellitus type 2 and other cardiovascular risk factors such as obesity and depression," they added.

Large observational study also found that regular coffee drinkers, have a lower risk of heart disease and blood vessels.

However, high doses of caffeine can be lethal. The FDA has warned of the dangers of caffeine powder products. One teaspoon of the powder as much caffeine is contained in 28 cups of regular coffee. (Gibran Linggau)
