Coffee and diabetes
Coffee provides us antioxidants and nutrients that helps to prevent the damage caused by molecules called oxygen-free radicals. Also contains minerals such as magnesium and chromium, which helps the body to use the insulin, a hormone that controls blood sugar (glucose). Diabetes type 2 makes the body lose its ability to use insulin and regulate blood sugar effectively.
COFFEE AND PARKINSON’S DISEASE
Researchers in the U.S. carried out a study that assessed the link between coffee consumption and Parkinson’s disease risk. The authors of the study concluded that higher coffee and caffeine intake is associated with a significantly lower incidence of Parkinson’s disease.
COFFEE AND LIVER CANCER
Italian researchers found that coffee consumption lowers the risk of liver cancer by about 40%. In addition, some of the results suggest that if you drink three cups a day, the risks are reduced by more than 50%.
COFFEE AND HEART HEALTH
Researchers at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) and Harvard School of Public Health, concluded that drinking coffee with moderation protects against heart failure.They defined ‘moderation’ as 2 European cups (equivalent to two 8-ounce American servings) per day. People who drinks four European cups on a daily basis have an 11% lower risk of heart failure, compare to those who did not drink coffee.
Now that you know all the benefits that coffee has for your health you may consider drink more often a few cups of it. And we have some information for those women who are reading us. Coffee is wonderful when it comes to lose some weight! The coffee diet combined with exercise and drinking before bathing turns out to be one of the effective ways to get slim.
