PREVENT Diabetes Easily! The #1 Diet Hack – Works Fast (Anyone Can Do It)

This beverage could lower your risk of type 2 diabetes, say researchers.

Led by researchers at the Harvard School of Public Health, they say that drinking one and a half more cups of coffee per day–approximately 360ml per day–could help cut a person’s four-year risk of type 2 diabetes by 11 percent. Though it seems like a small number, it could make a big difference for many people battling pre-diabetes, the condition that precedes type 2 diabetes.

Commenting on the findings, researchers Dr. Frank Hu and Dr. Shilpa Bhupathiraju make the following statement:

“In these 3 large prospective cohorts with more than 1.6 million person-years of follow-up, we observed that increasing coffee, but not tea, intake over a 4-year period was associated with a lower type 2 diabetes risk in the next 4 years. Decreasing coffee intake was associated with a higher type 2 diabetes risk. These changes in risk were observed for caffeinated, but not decaffeinated coffee, and were independent of initial coffee consumption and 4-year changes in other dietary and lifestyle factors.”

Using data from the Nurses’ Health Study I and II and the Health Professionals Follow-Up Study, they tracked more than 123,000 health professionals, whose health data was reported every 2 to 4 years for a period of 20 years. This gave researchers enough information to determine how certain factors, such as lifestyle and dietary habits, affected their risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

During the 20 years of follow-up 7,269 participants developed type 2 diabetes.

Researchers then examined how often they consumed coffee, and found a significant association: Consuming more than 1 cup of coffee per day reduced their risk by 11 percent over a 4 year period. Conversely, people who decreased their coffee intake by a cup or more were 17 percent more likely to develop diabetes.

Those who benefited the most, however, were those who consumed coffee at a regular and higher than average rate–about 3 cups per day. They were 37 percent less likely to develop the disease.

According to researchers, this not only proves coffee has a protective effect against type 2 diabetes, but also shows it has an immediate short-term effect on this risk. That’s good news for coffee drinkers.

“Changes in coffee consumption habits appear to affect diabetes risk in a relatively short amount of time,” write researchers. “Our findings confirm those of prospective studies that higher coffee consumption is associated with a lower type 2 diabetes risk and provide novel evidence that changes in coffee consumption habits are related to diabetes risk.”

What This Means For You

If you want to keep your risk of type 2 diabetes low, then you know what to do–if you haven’t already, make coffee a daily habit. For those who can tolerate high amounts of caffeine, coffee provides an almost immediate effect against the disease, keeping you (and your blood sugar) healthy.
