If you love your morning coffee, but have been nervous about its effects on your brain health, I have good news.

Here’s the story…

It turns out that coffee may help lower your risk of having a stroke, especially if it’s a regular part of your diet.

A new study, just published in Stroke: the Journal of the American Association, seems to show that the more coffee (or green tea) people drink, the lower their risk of having a stroke.

Coffee prevents strokeThis is especially good news because, aside from water, coffee and tea are the most popular beverages in the world. Here’s just some of what the study found:

People who drank at least one cup of coffee per day had a 20% lower risk of stroke.

People who drank at least one cup of coffee per day had a 32% lower risk of intracerebral hemorrhage (this condition causes about 13% of strokes).

People who drank 2 to 3 cups of green tea each day had a 14% lower risk of stroke.

DESIGN: The study examined the coffee and green tea drinking habits of over 82,000 adults, between the ages of 45 to 74, and followed them for an

average of 13 years.

CONCLUSION:  Dale Webb, D.Phil., says: “We welcome this study, which suggests that the benefits of antioxidants in coffee and green tea offset the potential harm from caffeine. The results demonstrate higher consumption of green tea and coffee might reduce the risks for stroke, especially for intracerebral hemorrhage.”

SUGGESTION: As in all things, moderation is recommended. If you already drink a cup of coffee each day, this study seems to show there’s no reason to change that behavior. In fact, your morning coffee may be helping protect you from a stroke!
