As the weather gets colder there’s nothing better than a hot beverage to warm you up.

The National University of Singapore has some good news for all you tea and coffee lovers.

Four cups of tea or coffee a day may keep you stronger the older you get.

Researchers found that those consuming four or more cups of coffee per day were much less likely to be physically frail in later life.

Frailty is defined as having exhaustion weight loss, slowness and weakness in later years.

The study collected data from 12,000 participants, aged 45 to 74 years old, over a period of 20 years.

People who drank four cups of coffee a day had the best outcomes, but those who drank black and green tea also benefited.

Tea and coffee also contain rich bioactive polyphenols, which possess antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
