The benefits of coffee are truly amazing. Not only can it give you an extra boost in the morning, it can also prevent disease. According to an american study, coffee can even help your liver.
In a study conducted by researchers at the Kasier Permanente, Oakland, California, coffee is shown to help your liver in a extraordinary way. If you drink four or more cups of coffee a day it can decrease chances of cirrhosis by 80%. Cirrhosis is a type of liver disease that lowers liver cells, and scars the liver which is irreversible. This is due to long-term damage of the liver which is usually caused by alcohol. Cirrhosis is hard to detect early, but further along the disease it could start affecting your physical health. Cirrhosis can also lead to liver cancer.
By drinking just one cup of coffee everyday it could have a positive impact on your health. In particular it can help you alleviate the possibility of liver disease. So go ahead, coffee can not only be good for your mind, but for your body too.
“Consuming coffee seems to have some protective benefits against alcoholic cirrhosis, and the more coffee a person consumes the less risk they seem to have of being hospitalised or dying of alcoholic cirrhosis. We did not see a similar protective association between coffee and non-alcoholic cirrhosis.”
