What you put in your mug could help fight diabetes!

by , 15 October 2013

How's this for a scary statistic: Every 17 seconds, doctors diagnose another person with diabetes! Don't let it happen to you. Easier said than done, you think. You're wrong. In fact, diabetes prevention starts with what you put in your mug each morning…

Good news if you can’t live without your morning caffeine fix!

Researchers at the Institute for Scientific Information on Coffee have revealed that drinking three to four cups of coffee per day may help prevent Type II diabetes, reports sciencedaily.com.

Here’s how coffee could cut your diabetes risk in half!

It turns outs, says the inquisitor.com, that a “certain level of coffee consumption reduces your risk of Type 2 diabetes by up to 50% when coffee consumption is four or more cups a day.”

Sounds too good to be true?

It’s not, says Nutrition & Healing’s Dr Jonathan Wright.

As he explains: “Coffee’s power against type 2 diabetes lie in its effect on a substance called human islet amyloid polypeptide (hIAPP).

By inhibiting hIAPP, whose unfolding is directly linked to the development of diabetes, coffee actually helps keep diabetes at bay.

But be warned: If your coffee drinking accompanies other negative lifestyle habits like smoking, eating fatty foods of lack of physical activity, no amount of coffee will keep diabetes at bay indefinitely. This is even more true if you’re one of those folks who add three sugars to ever cup.

So next time someone berates you for being on your third cup before noon, drink up and smile. You have one less reason to feel guilty about your coffee addiction.
