You probably know by now that I’m not a coffee drinker. But that doesn’t mean I don’t recommend drinking it. In fact, I’ve talked numerous times before about the potential benefits of your morning cup of java. Research has linked coffee to reduced risk of diabetes, tinnitus, and stroke—just to name a few.
Now, another interesting benefit has surfaced, according to a new study: Drinking coffee regularly could reduce the risk of liver cancer.
Researchers at the UK-based World Cancer Research Fund International did an analysis of 34 studies including 8.2 million people, more than 24,500 of whom had liver cancer. Among other things, they looked at the participants’ coffee consumption.
And, after analyzing the data, the researchers determined that just one cup of coffee per day can lower their risk of liver cancer by 14%.
This protection likely comes from coffee’s proven anti-inflammatory effect (considering excess inflammation is present in virtually every cancer).
So if you’re already a coffee drinker, here’s one more reason to keep drinking that morning cup. Just do me a favor and skip the milk and sugar.
And if you’re not a coffee drinker? Good news: you don’t have to become one to reap its best rewards. Because green coffee bean extract contains all the same beneficial compounds as coffee itself.
In fact, green coffee bean extract contains highly concentrated amounts of these compounds. Making it and even more potent source of coffee’s benefits. Which is why even coffee drinkers can benefit from adding green coffee bean extract to their daily regimen.
I recommend taking at least 225 mg of green coffee bean extract per day.
