To help protect and protect the liver from its harmful effects, experts say: drink coffee.
A new study conducted in the UK has shown how the harmful effects of alcohol on the liver can be removed by drinking many people’s most favorite beverage – coffee, two cups a day.
According to a previous study that analyzed 10 studies involving more than 430,000 respondents. Those who drank 2 cups of coffee a day had a 44 percent lower risk of developing liver cirrhosis.
Millions of people around the world die of the disease each year. And in addition to excessive alcohol consumption, it also causes:
- Fatty liver (often associated with obesity and diabetes)
- Autoimmune diseases
- Hepatitis C infections
What is worrying is that there is still no cure for the disease. According to Dr. Oliver Kennedy, a professor at the University of Southampton who was the lead author of the new study, coffee consumption plays a vital role in reducing the risk of developing cirrhosis of the liver.
Coffee is cheap, easily accessible and does not cause most people trouble. Many people have a favorite drink, so it is the best tool for healing the liver.
The new study included 2,000 liver cirrhosis patients, divided into two groups. The results showed that one cup of coffee a day reduced the risk of cirrhosis by 22 percent. While two cups reduced by 43 percent, three by 57 percent and four cups of coffee a day reduced the risk by a whopping 67 percent.
The results were compared with those of respondents who did not drink coffee. While this is really good news. The type of coffee beans that the respondents were asked to make, the technique of preparation and the lifestyle of the respondents must also be taken into consideration.
