Therefore, decaffeinated coffee is also good, and here also falls another false belief that saw decaffeinated as an absolute evil.

Until recently it was believed that excessive consumption of coffee was associated with an increase in blood pressure and a predisposition to the development of arrhythmias, especially tachycardia and atrial fibrillation. These hypotheses are supported by the fact that caffeine, contained in coffee (but also in other foods), with its excitatory effect could increase blood pressure and heart rate.

PROS and CONS of Caffè in Caspule

This is certainly true when certain quantities of coffee are exceeded (and above all caffeine which is the psychoactive substance contained in coffee) but if you keep between 2 and 5 cups of coffee a day there is no increase in pressure values. arterial blood pressure, not even in hypertensive patients (in those subjects who have a pathology that determines an already basic high blood pressure) nor an alteration of heart rate with a predisposition to the onset of cardiac arrhythmias.

As Paracelsus already said thousands of years ago, “it is the dose that makes the poison”, this also applies to coffee and caffeine; in fact, within certain quantities, coffee has beneficial effects on the whole body including the heart and cardiovascular system, but when certain doses are exceeded, the risk that “side effects” such as insomnia, restlessness, irritability and nervousness may arise and prevail.

However, it should also be emphasized that sensitivity to caffeine is extremely personal so there are people who can drink a cup of coffee before going to bed and sleep peacefully all night, on the contrary, there are other people in whom only one cup causes a state of restlessness and anxiety.

In conclusion, is coffee good or bad?

We have answered this specific question in this related article that we recommend you read: Is coffee good or bad? Here’s what the science says!

We can therefore conclude by saying that coffee is certainly good for the heart but on what the recommended “dose” is, all that remains is to make attempts in order to test one’s individual sensitivity.

Now that, with this article, we have dispelled any doubts about this age-old question, you just have to choose your favorite coffee from our website from dozens of blends available and enjoy a moment of pure pleasure, just like at the bar.

Cardiovascular diseases

Cardio vascular diseases are a set of pathologies that affect the heart and blood vessels and represent the second plague of our age after cancer.

Cardiovascular diseasesPollution, combined with a lifestyle increasingly characterized by an unbalanced diet, alcohol and smoking abuse and excessive sedentary lifestyle, are the main culprits for this unhappy statistic.

  • The prevention of cardiovascular diseases therefore concerns the specific need to reduce the risk factors seen above.
  • Fighting “poor nutrition” is therefore fundamental and is a factor on which we can act directly (unlike others over which we have no control, such as age, or pollution).

To reduce risk factors more effectively, it is useful to combine a correct diet with supplements that participate in vascular protection, reduce cholesterol and protect against genetic mutations responsible for cardio-vascular diseases.
