Coffee drinkers who drink four or more cups a day seem to benefit the most. The results of both studies will need to be confirmed with more research. So if you are not already a coffee drinker or only drink moderate amounts of coffee, this is not your cue to increase the amount you currently drink. Also, if you have known heart disease or heart rhythm problems, talk with your doctor about coffee consumption. However, if you are already a moderate coffee drinker with no known heart problems, drinking coffee may be helping you do more than wake up in the morning: it might be delivering benefits for your heart health.
