Drinking three to four cups of coffee a day can reduce your risk of developing type 2 diabetes by almost 25 percent, suggests research. The effect of coffee consumption on type 2 diabetes was found in both men and women. The study showed the same protective effect that caused the same amount of decaffeinated coffee.
It was not just a caffeine, but a combination of compounds including hydroxynamic acids, in particular chlorogenic acid, trigonellin, diterpenes, e.g., caffeine and kahweol, and caffeic acid, which is said to be the cause of the link, Karolinsky's Assistant Professor Mattias Carlstrom Institutet, Sweden.
The results were presented at the 2018 Annual Meeting of the German Diabetes Research Center (EASD). For the study, the group estimated 30 proactive studies involving a total of 1,185,521 participants.
Professor Kjeld Hermansen of Aarhus University in Denmark suggests that there may be several factors such as antioxidant activity, anti-inflammatory effect, thermogenic effects or modulation of microbial diversity.
Coffee also caused other beneficial changes in fatty acid and inflammatory adipocytes associated with diabetes risk.
In addition, coffee plays an important role in energy and attention, reduces the risk of depression, multiple sclerosis, helps fat, and prevents Alzheimer's and Parkinson's outbreaks, a previous study has shown.
