I’m not a coffee drinker myself.
But that doesn’t mean I don’t recommend it.
In fact, research has linked your morning cup of joe to a reduced risk of diabetes, dementia, and even stroke.
Now, a new benefit has come to light.
According to researchers, drinking coffee could protect one of the most important organs in your body.
Let me explain…
Reduce kidney damage risk
Researchers from Johns Hopkins University recently found that drinking just one cup of coffee daily may reduce your risk of acute kidney injury (AKI).
An AKI—also known as acute renal failure—is a sudden episode of kidney failure or damage that happens within a few hours or a few days.
This can also affect other organs in your body such as the brain, heart, and lungs.
But—researchers discovered that people who drank ANY amount of coffee daily were 15 percent less likely to suffer an AKI.
That said, they found the largest risk in reduction among those who drank two to three cups of coffee each day.
Researchers believe the compounds in coffee combined with caffeine—or possibly just the caffeine itself—is to credit for this.
Enjoy your cup of joe
This isn’t the first study to show the benefits of drinking coffee.
In fact, Harvard researchers found drinking four cups of coffee daily could reduce body fat by about four percent. They also attribute the metabolic benefits to the caffeine.
So—stop worrying over those few cups of coffee each day.
However, don’t load your coffee with milk and sugar. Or worse, artificial sweeteners. Doing so will cancel out any health benefits associated with drinking coffee.
Instead, drink your coffee black. Then, opt for a natural sweetener like Stevia, if you must.
Also, skip decaf varieties if you can, since the caffeine content seems to be linked to most of these benefits.
