Drinking coffee and tea may help people to live longer by reducing chemicals in the blood that can trigger heart disease and it’s to do with caffeine. It helps to block chemicals in the blood that promote inflammation. Caffeine, the ingredient that gives coffee, tea and some fizzy drinks a lift, blocks chemicals in our blood that promote inflammation. Inflamed blood vessels are more likely to become stiffer – a risk factor for heart disease.
The findings show that an underlying inflammatory process, which is associated with ageing, is not only driving cardiovascular disease but is, in turn, driven by molecular events that we may be able to target and combat.’
The ongoing study following participants aged 20-30, and another group of people aged 60, those who tended to drink more caffeinated beverages had lower levels of inflammatory compounds in their blood.
Caffeine had an active role in combating the chemicals that trigger inflammation.
So Keep Drinking 😉
