People with irregular heart beats, palpitations and arrhythmias are often told to avoid caffeine. However, a new study of almost 1,400 participants suggests that consuming coffee, tea and chocolate may not be all that bad for your heart health.
Researchers found no relationship between caffeine consumption and irregular heartbeats.
Principal investigator, Dr. Gregory Marcus says people should “experiment and weigh the pros and cons of caffeine” from a personal level.
He goes on to say that most arrhythmias are not deadly, so don’t be afraid to indulge in a little tea or coffee. Heck, it may even been good for you.
