Espresso, tea, coffee even aid arrhythmia frequency reduction, except their previously found benefits to the patients who suffer some odds of heart arrhythmias and atrial fibrillation, suggests a thorough research review obtained by Australian scientists and published in the journal JACC: Clinical Electrophysiology.
In order to examine all the potential impacts on the cardiac rhythm caused by the beverages that are caffeinated, the researchers conducted a comprehensive study sin which they could not found any evidence showing that little moderate amount of coffee or tea consumption can lead to ventricular arrhythmias and atrial fibrillation, reported Peter Kistler from the Alfred Heart Centre in Melbourne.
On the other hand, consuming energy drinks has long been associated by scientists with critically increased risk of arrhythmia, due to which they suggest such drinks must be shunned by the people already suffering from certain heart conditions.
Peter Kistler, MBBS, PhD, mentioned in a press statement that, “There is a public perception, often based on anecdotal experience, that caffeine is a common acute trigger for heart rhythm problems. Our extensive review of the medical literature suggests this is not the case.”
Moreover, the researchers have even observed after the overarching epidemiological analyses that the consumption of caffeine on a regular or daily basis is more likely to cut the major risk of cardiovascular diseases or any kind of mortality.
The conclusion made by researchers says, “Large-scale population-based studies and randomized controlled trials suggest coffee and tea are safe and may even reduce the incidence of arrhythmia. Although there is no clearly defined threshold for caffeine harm, a regular intake of up to 300 mg/day appears to be safe and may even be protective against heart rhythm disorders.”
