That’s because the more coffee we drink, the more it seems to lower our risk of Type 2 diabetes.
Harvard University researchers analyzed 28 studies with more than a million total participants… And discovered that people who drank six cups of coffee a day cut their risk of diabetes by a‑third. The good news is, we don’t have to drink that much to get the benefits. Because each cup of coffee lowers our diabetes risk by about 9%. And decaffeinated coffee works, too. Researchers believe it’s because the health benefits come from chlorogenic acid… A naturally-occurring chemical in coffee that slows the ability of our intestines to absorb glucose – which helps smooth out blood sugar levels.
