There are some health benefits that come from drinking coffee. In addition to helping to clear the mind, previous studies have shown that it has a positive effect on lowering the risk of heart disease and Parkinson’s disease.

In addition, another recently published study found that coffee drinkers had a lower risk of liver disease and death.

This is the latest study result published in the BMC Public Health Journal, an international academic journal that analyzed data from 495,000 UK residents for 10 years. The researchers followed up people with chronic liver disease.

They found that coffee drinkers had a 21% lower risk of chronic liver disease and a 20% lower risk of fatty liver disease compared to those who never drank coffee at all. In addition, the risk of premature death from chronic liver disease was also relatively low.

A team of researchers from the University of Southampton and the University of Edinburgh, UK, who conducted the study, explained that coffee could provide a potential preventive effect against chronic liver disease.

Liver disease is one of the major health issues facing the world, especially in low-income countries. The number of patients has been steadily increasing over the past 30 years. Potential causes of liver disease include viruses, genetic factors, drug reactions, and excessive drinking.

A point to note in this study is that the coffee that helped prevent liver-related diseases is not instant coffee, but ‘coffee ground directly from beans’. Ground coffee contains more ‘kaweol’ and ‘caestol’, known as anti-inflammatory ingredients, and ‘polyphenol’, an antioxidant, which is presumed to be the reason why coffee has a positive effect on the body.

Another thing to keep in mind is that if drinking coffee interferes with sleep, makes your heart pounding, or causes heartburn, these studies do not mean you need to drink coffee. It is recommended to drink no more than 2 to 3 cups of coffee per day for those who do not show any discomfort even after drinking coffee.

Also, preventing liver disease is not just about drinking coffee. It is important to limit alcohol intake, have a balanced eating habit, and exercise regularly.

Avoid drinking more than 4 cups of coffee a day, and adding sugar or syrup will offset the benefits of coffee, so you should keep in mind that you should drink black coffee as it is.
