A meta-analysis from 2017 concluded that people who drank four to six cups of either caffeinated or decaffeinated coffee each day appeared to have a lower risk of metabolic syndrome, including type 2 diabetes.

Your heart likes coffee

One of the health benefits of drinking coffee is that it may protect against heart failure. People who drank moderate amounts of coffee each day had an 11% lower risk of heart failure than those who did not. Another study found that caffeine consumption may have at least a small benefit for cardiovascular health, including blood pressure.

It reduces the risk of Parkinson’s disease

Various studies have shown that caffeine, which is present in coffee and many other beverages, may help protect against Parkinson’s disease. One team concluded that men who drink over four cups of coffee per day might have a fivefold lower risk of Parkinson’s than those who do not.

Reduces the risk of liver cancer

Italian researchers found that coffee consumption lowers the risk of liver cancer by around 40%. Some of the results suggest that people who drink three cups per day might have a 50% lower risk.

Liver diseases don’t like it

A 2017 study concluded that consuming any type of coffee appeared to reduce the risk of liver cancer, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease and cirrhosis. Also, one 2014 study suggested a link between coffee consumption and a lower risk of dying from nonviral hepatitis-related cirrhosis. The researchers suggested that drinking two or more cups of coffee every day might reduce the risk by 66%.

But hold up, don’t go drinking jugs of coffee because we said so. Moderation is important in all aspects of life and coffee consumption is no exception. Know what works for your body and consume moderately.

Happy National Coffee day coffee lovers!
