Yes, even I was wowed. one of the biggest benefits of coffee is it reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes
Scientific evidence has shown us that coffee will help you reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes. Here is how, Cafestol is a bio component that is present in coffee it has anti diabetic properties. The search team found that the islets isolated from mice fed cafestol demonstrated a 75 to 87 percent increase in insulin production, compared with islets isolated from the control.
Group senior author of the page Frank Hu, M.D., Ph.D., a Professor of Nutrition and Epidemiology at Harvard said that “Regular consumption of coffee can be included as part of a healthy, balanced diet However, certain populations such as pregnant women and children should be cautious about high caffeine intake from coffee or other beverages.”
So yes, in the list of benefits of a coffee top place is that it will help in reducing the risk of diabetes.
Chronic liver disease is the 12th highest cause of death in the world currently and coffee helps you reduce or reverse the risk. Coffee contains caffeine, when it is digested it makes a chemical called paraxanthine which slows the growth of the scar tissue which is involved in fibrosis. This may help us fight liver issues like liver Cancer, Alcohol-related Cirrhosis, Non-alcohol-related fatty Liver Disease, and Hepatitis C. The journal concludes that “In the general population, frequent coffee and herbal tea consumption were inversely related with liver stiffness but not steatosis. Longitudinal analyses, as well as studies validating and unraveling underlying mechanisms, are needed.”
Parkinson’s disease is the second common neurodegenerative disorder. Of course after the most common one that is Alzheimer’s.
Studies over the years tell us coffee helps protect neurodegeneration. Not only caffeine, other molecules might help as decaf has also shown some results.
“The caffeinated and decaffeinated dark roast both had identical potencies in our initial experimental tests,” says Dr. Mancini. “So we observed early on that its protective effect could not be due to caffeine.”
As caffeine is a psychoactive stimulant drug. It can boost your metabolism. Have you ever wondered how some people eat 2-3 times more than you but still are slim? That is because when you have a higher metabolic rate you process your food better. That helps in weight loss.
