The new research published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology found that caffeine is not harmful to your heart’s electrical system.

Many people believed that caffeine might damage the heart’s electrical system, but it’s not true. Caffeine works on inside of our cells by adding more energy. In the U.S. above 80 percent of doctors recommend against caffeine consumption in patients with known abnormal heart rhythms. Many people feel faster heart rate which harms your heart and enters into life-threatening rhythms.

Although, caffeine has also been considered as an antioxidant. In day to day activities, an antioxidant may help in neutralizing the harmful waste products of your cells and also preserve your cells and tissues of health on the long-term basis. The scientist also found that the caffeine also protects heart muscle for an extended period.

Caffeine causes abnormal heart rhythms, but heart doctors didn’t have any evidence to prove it.

The research study about how the heart is affected by caffeine was compiled in a new article in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.

The result showed that multiple studies associate the regular coffee drinkers with lower amounts of new-onset atrial fibrillation which is known as “a. fib.” An irregular heart rhythm that increases your risk of stroke is called Atrial fibrillation which is very common.

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said that approximately 9 percent of Americans older than 65 years old have this abnormal rhythm. Medications to control your heart rate and potentially blood thinners are the treatment of this rhythm. Researchers suggest that these drinks may cause life-threatening rhythms and even blood clots.
