The researchers found that caffeine helps reduce the risk of death in people with kidney disease, RIA Novosti reported.
According to scientists, this effect of caffeine can be due to its effect on the body at the vascular level – the substance contributes to the release of nitric oxide, thereby improving the functioning of blood vessels.
A study involving 4,863 people found feedback between caffeine consumption and mortality among people with chronic kidney disease. In patients who consumed caffeine in large quantities, the risk of death decreased on average over five years by almost 25% compared with those who took less caffeine.
According to the authors of the study, it is possible to reduce the death rate of patients, recommending them to consume more caffeine. This option can be called simple, clinically beneficial and affordable. At the same time, scientists note that, ideally, a randomised controlled trial should be performed to confirm the advantage of this method.
