Cool Does coffee raise cholesterol levels?

Cafestol, a compound in coffee, is a potential stimulator of increased LDL cholesterol. “The catch is, it’s found in the oily portion of coffee,” says Weddig. “If you use a paper filter to make your coffee instead of something like a French Press, you lose that component.” Mesh filters, like those in a French press, will not eliminate the cafestol. However, if you don’t already have elevated LDL cholesterol, you likely don’t need to be concerned, says Weddig.

Coffe in it self has no cholesterol, but being a stimulant, it could raise cholesterol. Per the retired Nurse to my right.

Don't know about cholesterol, but coffee is pretty darn good for you health wise. If you believe in science, read this from Dr. Sanjiv Chopra of the Harvard Medical School

Why Coffee Is Good For Your Health: Dr. Sanjiv Chopra Explains - mindbodygreen.com


Obligatory cigar content: I met Dr. Chopra last year at our local cigar bar, and we smoked a cigar together. He told me his specialty was nutrition and longevity. So I asked him about the key things to consume for a healthy life. He listed 5 key things the research supports (including coffee). Then I asked how a doctor who specializes in wellness could be smoking cigars. he replied: "Right now my wife is out shopping, and I am sitting here with you having a nice conversation over a cigar." He went on to explain that the final element to wellness is low stress. So now I have a health reason to keep smoking.

Right out of the gate and you're going after my most precious early morning ritual? What other balloons are you going to pop?

Gotta love differing opinions...
It's the creamers and other dairy additives that we put into our coffees that drive this coffee/cholesterol debate. According to the blog below:

https://www.verywell.com/can-coffee-...esterol-697708

"Unfiltered coffees, also known as “boiled” coffees, do not employ a filter and include espresso, Turkish coffees, and French press coffees. Coffee contains many ingredients, most notably caffeine, chlorogenic acid, and chemicals called diterpenes. Many studies have examined the health benefits of coffee, paying particularly close attention to caffeine. Some studies have even suggested that drinking coffee may prevent diseases such as type II diabetes mellitus, Parkinson’s disease, certain types of liver cancer – and possibly improve your heart health by lowering your cholesterol and triglyceride levels.

Can Coffee Lower Your Lipid Levels?
To date, coffee consumption has not been directly associated with cardiovascular disease, but some studies reveal that some forms of coffee may adversely affect your lipid profile.

Although most studies have noted that filtered coffee has a neutral effect on lipid levels, unfiltered coffee appears to increase LDL, total cholesterol, and triglycerides in some studies."

I'm resurrecting this post since I like the topic. From what I've heard and read is there is no correlation between high cholesterol and heart disease. The concern is your reactive c level of your blood. Inflammation is what one should fear.

I eat red meat, smoke cigars, and drink a pot of coffee in the morning.

Life is really good.
