Cheers! Better than soda and other artificial drinks, caffeine has been found to be healthy, in moderation of course, just like wine. Studies show that the daily coffee fix is not just a pick-me-upper, but also contains antioxidants that fight inflammation, helps slow down cognitive decline, and yes, contributes to a healthy heart, as shown in a Dutch landmark study that proved that drinking 2-4 cups daily lowered risk of heart disease by 20%. Of course, who would not welcome the findings that a glass of red wine a day contributes to a healthy heart too. The ingredient in red wine, resveratrol, helps reduce blood clotting and inflammation. But if you are not a coffee or wine drinker, the good old water with a slice of lemon will do you good too.
