We’ve all been there. 4pm. Eyes are getting heavy. Waging war with your subconscious over whether that 25th flat white is worth it.
Well, look no further! A new study has said that it’s safe to consume 25 cups of coffee per day without doing any significant damage to your heart.
While drinking 25 cups of coffee might not damage your heart, high levels of caffeine consumption certainly damage other systems within the body.
The information was introduced at the British Cardiovascular Society’s conference earlier this week and has not yet been published in a peer-reviewed journal. The research had a sample size of 8,500 coffee-drinkers who were then compared with non-coffee-drinkers.
While there’s been a debate over the side effects of coffee for all of eternity, recent developments have found that the consumption of coffee has a range of health benefits, including improved heart health and longevity.
That being said, drinking more than 400 milligrams of caffeine per day can lead to headaches, stomach and liver problems, jitteriness, and dangerously high blood pressure levels.
While this study has successfully ruled out one of the potential detrimental effects of coffee consumption, nobody is recommending 25 (at least not in this economy).
