Stroke: Green tea and coffee would limit the risk of mortality. Overall, the two beverages would lower the risk of cardiovascular circumstances but above all, allow their victims to improve the chances of a fatal recurrence.
Are you a fan of green tea and coffee? You may be unconsciously performing a daily health routine that is very beneficial for your cardiovascular system!
A Japanese scientific study has just highlighted the advantages of the two substances in people who have been victims of stroke or heart attack.
Significant decrease in mortality
The work of researchers from the Japan Collaborative Cohort Study for Evaluation of Cancer Risk (or “JACC study”), based in Osaka, Japan, was delivered by the scientific publication Stroke.
The latter glanced at the coffee and green tea consumption habits of 46,000 people from several Japanese populations, aged 40 to 79, 60% of whom are women. Study participants were requested to take extensive regular surveys about their lifestyle before being assigned based on their stroke or heart attack history. The study ran for over 18 years.
The researchers then examined the relationship within the risk of death linked to green tea or coffee consumption. They found stroke survivors who consumed at least 7 cups of green tea per day reduced their risk of death by approximately 62%. Also, people who had a heart attack and drank one coffee a day decreased their overall risk of death by 22%.
Watch out for added sugar!
The researchers also observed that people who had nevermore had a stroke or heart attack and who sipped one or more coffee cups per week reduced the risk of death from these conditions by 14%.
Before you hurry on your espresso machine or your teapot, be cool! The researchers specify that we do not add sugar in green tea in Japanese knowledge and rarely in coffee. A small detail that is very important! If you can’t do without this sweet taste, a good spoonful of honey is a good stopgap. Be careful, however, to choose the latter!
