How much coffee is too much to drink a day?

How much coffee is too much to drink a day?”

That doesn't mean that any and all coffee is bad for your heart, however.

Is there a point when coffee becomes more harmful than helpful? More consumption than this did not change the findings. One small study found that regular coffee drinkers were 16% less likely to develop Alzheimer's, and another study of over 50,000 women found drinking at least one cup of Joe each week was associated with a 15% reduced risk for depression.

Increased focus and alertness are credited as being partly the reason.

But while the humble coffee may be a vital feature of the daily grind, how much is too much?

The researchers write that one in six persons are suffering from heart disease in Australia.

Researchers discovered that keeping coffee consumption under six cups per day was unlikely to affect heart health.

Speaking to The Sunday Times, Astrid Nehlig, a research director at France's National Institute of Health, said: "It is hard to calculate, but my feeling is that drinking coffee possibly adds another couple of years to your life".

Similarly, a study from the USA found that participants who consumed a cup of coffee per day were 12 per cent less likely to die compared to those who didn't drink coffee.

Examining the relationship of long haul coffee utilization and cardiovascular disease, UniSA specialists Dr Ang Zhou and Professor Elina Hyppönen of the Australian Center for Precision Health state their research confirms the point at which excess caffeine can cause high blood pressure, a precursor to heart disease.

The findings come from the analysis of data from the UK Biobank that included 347,077 participants aged 37 to 73 years old. People who drank between two and two and a half cups of coffee had a 4% lower risk of death from cancer. They also concluded that this association was independent of genetic makeup; in other words, people with the caffeine-metabolising gene were not able to safely drink more than those who don't have it.

"An estimated three billion cups of coffee are enjoyed every day around the world", the researcher said.

"Knowing the limits of what's good for you and what's not is imperative".

There are many conflicting health reports out there when it comes to coffee, but according to latest research, a moderate daily dose of caffeine can actually increase your life expectancy.

In fact, previous studies suggest that drinking lots of coffee may have many health benefits including reducing your risk of type 2 diabetes and certain cancers as well as boosting brain health and metabolism.

And they identified which coffee consumption habits increased or lowered the risk of cardiovascular disease. Over 10 years of follow-up they noted 14,225 deaths. However, the condition is also one of the most preventable.

Authors Z. Gaeini and colleagues this month also published an article comparing coffee drinking and tea drinking in the journal Nutrition Metabolism.
