Drinking This May Reduce Fatal Heart Disease Risk, New Study Says

If one of the first things you do each day is pour yourself a cup of something that helps you wake up, now you might have one more reason to keep up your routine. A new study that looked at the diet habits of nearly 469,000 people found that one particular beverage helped reduce the risk of early death from heart disease and stroke—two of the top five leading causes of death in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

A new study was presented Friday at the European Society of Cardiology's annual meeting to reveal three more possible benefits of regular coffee consumption. The research team accessed data from the UK Biobank health database for a study that the lead author stated "is the largest study to systematically assess the cardiovascular effects of regular coffee consumption in a population without diagnosed heart disease." The mean age of the sample was 56 years old, and 55.8% of the participants were women.

The author, Dr. Judit Simon of the Heart and Vascular Centre of Hungary's Semmelweis University, noted that half a cup to three cups of coffee per day "was independently associated with lower risks of stroke, death from cardiovascular disease, and death from any cause."

Drinkers of that amount of coffee saw a 12% lower risk of early death from any cause, as well as a 17% lower risk of death from cardiovascular disease, and a 21% lower risk of incident stroke.

To help explain why coffee may help prevent heart disease, stroke, and overall early death, Simon reported that her team had looked at magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of over 30,000 participants. Based on those reads, they concluded: "The imaging analysis indicated that compared with participants who did not drink coffee regularly, daily consumers had healthier sized and better functioning hearts. This was consistent with reversing the detrimental effects of aging on the heart."

Other recent studies have suggested that a similarly light-to-moderate amount of coffee consumption is a healthy target for daily drinkers. Get regular coffee news delivered straight to your inbox by subscribing to our newsletter.

When Should I Take Creatine?

Creatine is probably the most well-researched supplement on the market today. Numerous studies have found positive adaptations in strength, power and muscle mass thanks to creatine supplementation—especially when it's combined with resistance training. Although the benefits of creatine are well-known to lifters, the best time to take it isn't common knowledge. Which leads us to some important questions:     Does an optimal time for consuming creatine exist?     If it does, should you take it before or after your workout? According to a new study published in the Journal of Exercise and Nutrition, the timing of creatine ingestion does indeed play a role in getting bigger and stronger. Creatine supplementation before resistance training increases muscular strength and lean muscle mass. Interestingly, taking creatine immediately after lifting weights results in greater muscle growth than taking it immediately before. However, in terms of strength gains, no difference betw

Best Smoothie Habits for Weight Loss, According to Dietitians

When it comes to trying to lose weight , most of us are rather poor math students. We mess up the addition and subtraction all the time.
