According to the study, the journal PLOS Medicine found that drinking coffee or tea may lower a person’s risk for stroke and dementia
In the study, the researchers said that drinking coffee also was associated with a lower risk of dementia, or memory loss and reduced cognitive function, after a stroke,
The data showed the result in the form of ratio that: the people who consume two or three cups of coffee or three to five cups of tea per day, or a combination of four to six cups of coffee and tea, had reduced the risk of stroke and dementia up to 20% in comparison of those who never consumed any kind of beverage.
According to the research, those who drank two to three cups of each beverage daily about the amount recommended in the Dietary Guidelines for Americans had a 32% lower risk for stroke and 28% reduced risk for dementia.
They also said that solo intake of coffee or with the combination of tea was also associated with lower risk for post-stroke, or vascular, dementia, which occurs following a stroke, of up to 40%.
According to the researchers from Tianjin Medical University in China.
“Our findings suggested that moderate consumption of coffee and tea separately or in combination were associated with lower risk of stroke and dementia,”
“However, whether the provision of such information can improve stroke and dementia outcomes remains to be determined,” the researcher said.
Strokes, or when poor blood flow to the brain leads to cell damage, cause 10% of deaths globally, according to the World Health Organization.
