A drink ‘everyone loves’ causes irregular heartbeats by 54%

After researching a small sample of 100 volunteers with an average age of 38 years

Food habits are one of the most factors affecting the health of the human body, but foods and drinks that turn into a recurring daily habit may have a much greater impact than some might imagine, according to Sputnik.

Coffee is at the top of the list of the most famous morning drinks in the world, and many rely on it to give themselves a good boost of activity to face a day full of work and hardship, but this drink may cause its many lovers a heart problem, according to some studies.

Scientists in a research partly funded by the University of California, USA’s Department of Cardiology, studied a small sample of 100 volunteers with an average age of 38.

The researchers noted that when the participants drank more than one cup of coffee, the ECG readings they wore, which monitor heart movement and pulse, recorded either a double the number of beats or a 54% increase, of early ventricular contractions coming from the lower chambers of the heart.

According to new research revealed at a 2021 American Heart Association newsroom, “coffee drinkers can find themselves suffering from an irregular heartbeat if they consume too much of their favorite beverage.”

“Coffee is the most widely consumed beverage in the world, yet its health effects remain uncertain,” said one of the new study authors and co-chair of the Division of Cardiology Research and Professor of Atrial Fibrillation Research at UCLA.

The American researcher continues: “The majority of observational studies have suggested several potential benefits of drinking coffee, so this is the first randomized trial to investigate the physiological consequences related to the actual time of coffee consumption.”

Dr. Jim Liu, a cardiologist at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, in turn, said in statements to the American health magazine “Eat This, Not That” that coffee “as a stimulant, caffeine can have short-term effects on the heart.” Which can include both “increased blood pressure and increased palpitations.”

According to Dr. Liu, while “chronic caffeine use may lead to a slight increase in blood pressure, caffeine consumption has, for the most part, shown no significant long-term adverse effects on cardiovascular health as long as it is consumed in moderate amounts.”

The article noted that the magic key to avoiding this problem is to drink coffee in moderation, and regarding what a person should do if he feels that his heart rate has decreased somewhat after drinking coffee, Dr. Liu noted, “I think it is a good idea, in general, to consult with Your health care provider if you have an irregular heartbeat, especially if it’s bothersome and persistent.”
