Coffee May Help Prevent Diabetes

In the recent week, two studies have been released indicating that caffeine may decrease the risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

The results indicate that moderate consumption of coffee (both caffeinated and decaffeinated) may lower diabetes risk in middle-age and younger women. The study clearly indicates that women are the topic, but the data may be applicable to men as well. It’s believed that chemicals other than caffeine in the coffee itself are responsible for the increased resistance.

The coffee studied is primarily drip-coffee, which has a lower sugar content than mixed espresso-based drinks that are sometimes loaded with sugar-based sweeteners and flavours.

While it’s not conclusive for everybody, it is positive research that indicates a positive reason to consume coffee.

Prevaling theories are that coffee beans actually contain compounds that help reduce the oxidative stress on cells, improving insulin sensitivity.
