What is your favorite beverage? Most people love coffee. According to the 2017 National Coffee Drinking Trends online survey, 62% of 3000 participants drink coffee daily. Some people cannot even imagine their lives without this drink, waking up in the morning, the first thing they drink a cup of latte to boost their energy levels. People do this, because they believe that coffee is high in caffeine, which is a stimulant.
According to a 2013 review published in the Journal of Caffeine Research, coffee can cause dependency, especially when it is used in large doses. The fact is, people can start experiencing headaches and irritability if they try to stop drinking coffee. In addition, this delicious beverage can break your sleep schedule since it can stay in your bloodstream for hours. What’s more, it can increase anxiety, heart rate, and blood pressure.
Does coffee have any benefits? Fortunately, it has. In fact, coffee can help you live longer. According to study in Circulation, coffee consumption was linked to 8% -15% reduction in the risk of death. What’s more, other studies have shown that coffee can reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease type 2 diabetes, Parkinson’s disease and more.
Recent studies in the United Kingdom have shown that people who suffer liver damage caused by alcohol can drink two cups of coffee a day to improve the liver. Unbelievable! People who drank two cups of coffee a day had a 44% lower risk of developing liver cirrhosis.
People who have liver damage or liver cirrhosis may experience symptoms such as fatigue, bruising or bleeding easily, itchy skin, nausea, loss of appetite, and more. According to a study published in the Journal of Clinical Gastroenterology, liver disease affects more than 633,000 adults in the US.
“Cirrhosis is potentially fatal and there is no cure as such. Therefore, it is significant that the risk of developing cirrhosis may be reduced by consumption of coffee, a cheap, ubiquitous and well-tolerated beverage,” said lead study author Dr. Oliver Kennedy of Southampton University in the UK.
So, as you can see two cups of coffee a day can save your liver and your life. Coffee gives hope for treatment! “Do not forget that drinking a few cups of coffee a day cannot undo the systematic damage that is the result of being overweight or obese, sedentary, excessive alcohol consumption or drastically mitigate an unhealthy diet,” says Samantha Heller, a senior clinical nutritionist at New York University Langone Medical Center in New York.
