Abstract

It is well-known that a dietary intake and lifestyle play an important role in hypertension.Data from a variety of epidemiological studies on the effects of coffee consumption on blood pressure appear to be inconsistent, demonstrating a positive relation, no relation or even an inverse relations (1,2). Interestingly the JNC VII and the 2007 Guidelines for the management of arterial hypertension did not mentioned coffee intake in lifestyle modifications while moderation of alcohol consumption is included and encouraged (3,4).Coffee, an infusion of ground, roasted coffee beans, is one of the most popular beverages consumed in Western Countries. Coffee contains several hundred different substances including, carbohydrates, lipids, vitamins, minerals, phenolic compounds and alkaloids (5). Nevertheless effects of coffee on cardiovascular system have been mainly related to caffeine. Caffeine is the most widely consumed behaviorally active substance in the world and almost all caffeine comes from dietary sources, most of it from coffee and tea (6). Caffeine is a purine alkaloid that is naturally present in coffee beans.
