How Much Coffee Is Too Much? A New Study Has the Answer

This is how many cups of coffee you should be drinking

Their results showed that compared to those who drank just one to two cups of coffee daily, people who drank six or more were 22% more likely to develop cardiovascular disease during the study period.

Similarly, a study from the United States found that participants who consumed a cup of coffee per day were 12 per cent less likely to die compared to those who didn't drink coffee.

"We also know that risk of cardiovascular disease increases with high blood pressure, a known outcome of excess caffeine consumption". According to an infographic about coffee consumption produced by the National Coffee Association, coffee drinkers down an average of only 3.2 cups daily.

Using UK Biobank data of 347,077 participants aged 37-73 years, the study explored the ability of the caffeine-metabolising gene (CYP1A2) to better process caffeine.

Researchers discovered that keeping coffee consumption under six cups per day was unlikely to affect heart health. The World Health Organization calls cardiovascular disease the leading cause of death as well as one of the most preventable causes of death. This is the first time an upper limit has been placed on cardiovascular health and coffee consumption, which is making people ask how much consumption of caffeine is too much. People with this gene could metabolize coffee faster than others.

"Most people would agree that if you drink a lot of coffee, you might feel jittery, irritable or perhaps even nauseas - that's because caffeine helps your body work faster and harder, but it is also likely to suggest that you may have reached your limit for the time being", Hypponen said.

And last December further research found that people who drink two to three cups per day have a 12 percent lower risk of early death than people who don't drink coffee at all.

Drinking as little as two cups of coffee a day could increase your life expectancy by up to two years, new research has revealed. However, another group of scientists find that six or more cups of coffee could lead to higher risk of cardiovascular disease.

The chemical acrylamide, which is found in coffee as a byproduct of the brewing process, has also been linked to cancer (it's most likely not unsafe in the amounts found in coffee, though). "Knowing the limits of what's good for you and what's not is imperative", says Hyppönen.

There are many conflicting health reports out there when it comes to coffee, but according to latest research, a moderate daily dose of caffeine can actually increase your life expectancy.
