As little sweet as possible
People who drink coffee every day live longer
Attention coffee lovers! Regular consumption of roasted brown beans can prolong life. This is the result of an in-depth study.
Nothing works in the morning without coffee. If you belong to this group, you are in good and healthy company, according to a recent study. Because regular coffee consumption should reduce the risk of dying prematurely.
Daily coffee is said to prolong life
Using data from over 170,000 people from the UK BioBank, scientists have now found that the risk of dying is reduced if a moderate amount of coffee is drunk each day – whether it is sweetened or unsweetened. This is reported by the Austrian mail.
The data analysis, which covers a period of seven years, included factors such as age, gender, level of education, but also body mass index and dietary habits.
Result: subjects who drank unsweetened coffee had the lowest risk of premature death. The biggest difference – 29% – was seen in participants who drank between 2.5 and 4.5 cups of coffee per day. However, the researchers pointed out that very sweet coffee drinks, such as a caramel macchiato, had no positive effect.
The influence of coffee on health has been the subject of much research
How coffee affects the body has already been examined in numerous studies. Coffee is said to have a positive effect on gut and liver health and even a protective effect against dementia.
Naveed Sattar, a British metabolism expert, points out about the study that the current results should not be taken as universally valid. Other factors also help reduce the risk of death. Regular coffee enjoyment isn’t the only factor. Test subjects who drank coffee would likely lead healthy lives with exercise, adequate sleep, and a varied diet. “I would recommend people stick to coffee or tea, preferably no sugar, which most people can get used to. And then do all the other things we know are healthy – exercise more to eat and sleep better,” Sattar told the Guardian.
