Good news coffee addicts, research shows that drinking coffee can help lower the risk of liver disease linked to alcoholism and obesity. That’s right folks, coffee may protect the liver from alcohol.
In a research conducted by the Southampton University of Britain, researchers were able to analyze data from a combined 430,000 participants of nine different published studies, that people drinking two more cups of coffee daily lowers the risk of developing liver cirrhosis by as much as 44 percent.
Cirrhosis is responsible for the deaths of more than a million people all over the world, mostly caused by poor lifestyle habits like excessive eating and alcohol consumption. Other factors also include fatty liver disease, complications arising from hepatitis infections and auto-immune disorders.
Cirrhosis is highly fatal and has no known cure, which targets the liver and causes massive organ failure.
Focusing on the common test instruments utilized for these studies, the researchers discovered that a known factor linking all test participants were coffee consumption.
Dr. Oliver Kennedy, the head of the research team, said that a significant reduction in the risk of developing cirrhosis was noted for those who increased their coffee consumption by two cups daily and the risks continued to decline with the relative increase of daily coffee consumption.
They supported this claim by showing the combined results that at least one cup of coffee per day lowers the risk of cirrhosis by 22%, doubling it further drops the risk to 43 percent. It further declined to 57 percent with 3 cups of coffee and a staggering 65 percent for those who took at least four cups a day.
Coffee has been scientifically proven to contain significant amounts of powerful antioxidants and essential anti-inflammatory compounds that help fight free radicals to counter the effects of oxidative stress and organ deterioration as a result of aging.
Kennedy however cautioned that this does not mean people should go ahead and drink large amounts of sweetened coffee or coffee mixtures loaded with potentially-fattening toppings or creams, since it has not been established yet as to which specific chemical compounds are responsible for taking care of the liver.
He also further warned that even with high concentrations of these healing compounds, drinking cups of coffee could not undo the damage to the liver resulting from poor lifestyle habits like excessive consumption of alcohol, drug abuse, obesity and poor nutrition.
