A study recently showed that your cup of coffee in the morning can prevent the development of type 2 diabetes. This has to do with the way the drink is prepared, so not all types will have this action.
The research, carried out by the Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, concluded that filtered coffee can prevent the onset of diseases in the body.
Type 2 diabetes affects the way the body processes blood sugar, that is, glucose. It can arise due to genetic or environmental factors, including obesity, a sedentary lifestyle, and poor diet.
How Filtered Coffee Can Prevent Diabetes
According to experts, filter coffee, unlike other forms of preparation of beans, which can be harmful to health, has many health benefits. “It has been shown that when coffee is filtered, diterpenes (harmful substances) are captured in the filter,” explained Rickard Landberg, one of the authors of the analysis.
In the same way, the amount of drink we consume is also important. Scientists have found that people who drink two to three cups of filtered coffee a day have a 60% lower risk of developing Type 2 diabetes than those who drink less than one cup a day.
However, the study authors noted that they did not examine other forms of coffee preparation. They also highlighted that the way it is prepared is not the only factor that interferes with its effect on the body, so its consumption should always be moderate.
