This hot beverage helps reduce the risk of a stroke by up to 12% in women to drink coffee regularly as opposes to those who drink 1 cup of coffee in a month or so, in general.

The good and positive health benefits of coffee-drinking come from antioxidants in the hot beverage which lower inflammation and improve blood vessel function and thus reduce the chances of a stroke.

So, coffee lovers rejoice!! Drink your fill and indulge in the rich and uplifting notes of gourmet and exotic coffee beans and feel good about it! The caffeine in the coffee however is bad for women who have insomnia, anxiety, high blood pressure and cardiac complications and thus should be dealt with wisely.

Taking into account the factors such as consumption of alcohol and alcoholic drinks along with cigarettes, researchers found that on an average coffee drinking women had 19% less chances of a stroke and those who drink 3-4 cups of coffee daily had 20% lower chances of a stroke.

This conclusion has been the result of a 24 year old long study and survey conducted by the Harvard Medical School and Harvard School of Public Health in Boston.
