Italian researchers presented new data that are quickly leading to an exciting conclusion — coffee is healthier for you than you know!
According to the findings, a regular dose of coffee could help lower cholesterol, maintain weight and reduce the risk of liver disease.
“Previous studies have confirmed how coffee can reverse the damage of [Non Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease] but this is the first to demonstrate that it can influence the permeability of the intestine,” said Vincenzo Lembo, University of Napoli professor and author of the study on the benefits of coffee.
“The results also show that coffee can reverse NAFLD-related problems such as ballooning degeneration, a form of liver cell degeneration."
“Italy is famous for its coffee and this Italian study has reinforced our knowledge on the link between it and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease,” Professor Laurent Castera added.
“Although not suggesting that we should consume greater levels of coffee, the study offers insights that can help future research into and understanding of the therapeutic role coffee can play in combating NAFLD."
Drink up, world!
