  Pass the Cold Brew, Because Coffee Has a Ton of Health Benefits We’re All (Not) Sleeping On "You are so brew-tiful to me."Thankfully, registered dietician Tracy Lockwood Beckerman, MS, RD, is here to spill the tea—or rather, java—on the benefits of coffee for the latest episode of You Versus Food. And for all those taken by the allure of coffee, I promise you that she has some pretty great news.

Multiple studies show that coffee offers benefits to the heart, though research also shows that coffee prepared in certain ways can offer the greatest effects.

The focus of this particular study was to examine the effects of instant coffee on the development of heart disease. To do this, the researchers collected data from 1,041 male and female participants between the ages of 39 and 67 (with an average age of 53.6 years). Of this sample, the researchers report that 30% of individuals "habitually consumed instant coffee."

Additionally, they discovered that instant coffee consumption was associated with carotid arterial compliance (which, according to a 2008 study published in Nature, is healthy elasticity in the carotid artery, serving as a marker of cardiovascular wellness).

In conclusion, the researchers in the current study report that "habitual moderate instant coffee consumption" is associated with elasticity in the arteries—and therefore may also be associated with a lower incidence of cardiovascular disease.
