How Coffee Affects Your Blood Pressure

Coffee is surprisingly beneficial for your health in more ways than one. It contains polyphenols (powerful antioxidants that ward off disease in the body)

Cofee can improve your gut health, and even helps you live longer.

Consuming caffeine can cause a short yet dramatic increase in blood pressure. Although the connecting reason between the two is still unclear.

Some researchers think caffeine can block a hormone that keeps the arteries widened, resulting in higher numbers.

Johns Hopkins Medicine says that if your blood pressure increases by 5 to 10 points 30 minutes after caffeine, it may be beneficial to cut back.

However, while some regular caffeine consumers will have higher cases of blood pressure, not all do.

Researchers conclude that this is likely due to caffeine tolerance over time if you are habitually drinking it.
