Drinking coffee may reduce your chances of developing type 2 diabetes. This is according to research conducted by Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH).

People who drink more coffee are less likely to develop type 2 diabetes in the first place, but modifying your coffee consumption can change your risk in a fairly short space of time.

People who increased the amount of coffee they consumed each day by more than one cup over a four-year period reduced their risk of developing type 2 diabetes by 11 percent, compared to those who made no changes to their coffee consumption. The research also found that those who decreased their coffee consumption by more than a cup per day increased their type 2 diabetes risk by 17%.

Coffee is a healthy beverage. It has several benefits to your health. Coffee improves alertness and physical stamina and is a relatively healthy way to increase your energy when feeling fatigued. It’s also very good for your liver, reducing inflammation and improving prognosis in those with a liver disease.

Too much coffee isn’t desirable because it can lead to adrenal gland exhaustion and may deplete the calcium in your bones.

It is also important to avoid adding sugar to your coffee. Our Nature Sweet Table Top Sweetener is a great sugar alternative, which is safe for diabetics and children.
