First came the news that coffee helps with erectile dysfunction—and now it’s out here preventing heart disease!

According to new findings by the University of Colorado, coffee intake may be a helpful part of stopping strokes and some heart problems. Researchers from the university presented their findings to the American Heart Association’s Scientific Sessions in Anaheim, California on Monday. 

In Time’s analysis of the findings, daily coffee consumption could be tied to less heart failure, stroke, and coronary heart disease. “Every extra cup of coffee consumed per day reduced each of these conditions by 8%, 7% and 5%, respectively, up to at least six cups per day,” the article says. 

The AHA also recommended limiting red meat consumption and to eat fruits and vegetables for heart health at the end of its statement about the findings. 

Forget the carrots in the time being though, line up another redeye!
