Although there are signs that coffee may be beneficial, caffeine does affect some cardiovascular functions. It can cause increased blood pressure, a higher heart rate, and even an irregular heartbeat in some consumers. In some cases, it might even raise the risk of heart disease.

Drinking more than four cups of coffee a day, may increase the risk of heart problems. In fact, a new study suggests that even two six-ounce cups of coffee a day may increase blood test values that measure inflammation.

Two cups of coffee a day is considered an acceptable amount. Caffeine does not become a problem until you start consuming an excessive amount of it. As your body gets used to caffeine, it becomes addicted to it.

The maximum amount of caffeine you should consume a day should be no more than 100 milligrams. It is recommended that if you drink more than this, you try to cut back. If you are sincerely addicted to caffeine-related products-it is recommended to take vitamins to help regain the nutrients you lose.
