London, Feb 12 (ANI): A single espresso every day can have damaging effect on your heart, claims a new study.

The study, published in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition, found that one cup of the caffeine-rich beverage was enough to reduce blood flow to the heart by 22 per cent within an hour of being consumed, reports The Telegraph.

Team scientists said the study's finding confirms that the high levels of caffeine found in a single espresso do have unfavourable cardiovascular effects.

To reach the conclusion, the team at the University of Palermo in Italy looked at what happened to the blood flow of 20 adult volunteers who drank a single espresso, compared to a decaffeinated alternative. (ANI)
