Coffee

No Link Between Heart Failure and Coffee Intake

My Coffee Story

It’s a fact that I had never drunk coffee for about 40 years. What a fool of me.  I was such a victim of the myths that coffee and caffein are harmful for our cardiovascular health. After all, I started drinking coffee in the middle of 2007 after recovery from the second time kidney stone disease I’ve suffered of. You may not believe this fact and think it is somewhat  ridiculous, but it is true. In effort to overcome the second time kidney stone disease, I decided only apply natural way of therapies in which, upon  advice from an naturopath physician, I started undertaking diet according to my blood type. My blood type is B and, surprisingly, he advised me to drink arabica coffee too. According to blood type diet, coffee is not harmful for Type Bs and even  they can get its strong antioxidant properties.

It is like  heaven for me drinking extraordinary arabicaJava, Mandheling, Kalosi , and Brazil coffee. And the important thing is: I feel so good. I am healthy more than ever. I love to share with you  of the latest good information for the coffee lover. My thankfulness to the scientists undertaken the official research below.

Coffee provides more than just a morning jolt; that steaming cup of java or mandheling  is also the number one source of antioxidants in some countries and,  particularly, in the U.S. diet, according to a new study by researchers at the University of Scranton (Pa.). Their study was described at the 230th national meeting of the American Chemical Society, the world’s largest scientific society.

“Americans get more of their antioxidants from coffee than any other dietary source. Nothing else comes close,” says study leader Joe Vinson, Ph.D., a chemistry professor at the university. Although fruits and vegetables are generally promoted as good sources of antioxidants, the new finding is surprising because it represents the first time that coffee has been shown to be the primary source from which most Americans get their antioxidants, Vinson says. Both caffeinated and decaf versions appear to provide similar antioxidant levels, he adds.
