A Happy news for Coffee Lovers : 3 cups of coffee a day is good for your heart!

Even though coffee is the most loved beverage in the world,it is also the most misunderstood drink flooding in the internet about its impact on our bodies.Recent studies have shown that coffee may actually be good for those with heart rhythm disorders and other heart conditions.

Earlier, the patients being treated for heart rhythm disorders were advised to avoid caffeine.But this study shows that coffee and tea may be tolerated.They can also be used to help to manage the heart beat rate.

A single cup of coffee contains about 95 mg of caffeine. It acts as a stimulant to the central nervous system and it blocks the effects of adenosine.Adenosine is  a chemical that causes atrial fibrillation (AFib). AFib is the most common heart rhythm disorder that causes the heart to beat rapidly and skip beats.If it is left untreated, it can cause strokes.

Energy drinks contain caffeine at much higher concentrations than tea or coffee, and can include other compounds, which can trigger arrhythmias. They are still best avoided by patients with pre-existing heart conditions.
