Your beloved morning brew can do more than just perk you up and give you a boost. Recent studies suggest that moderate coffee consumption could be good news for your liver health!
Your liver is a big deal, it helps with detoxifying your body, processing nutrients, and aids in digestion. Taking care of it is key since liver damage can lead to some serious health problems. The good news is regular coffee drinking could help protect your liver from damage! Studies show that people who drink coffee have a lower risk of developing liver diseases like liver cirrhosis, liver cancer, and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.
A 2016 meta-analysis of 16 studies found that folks who drank more coffee had a lower risk of liver cancer compared to those who drank little or no coffee. The study, which looked at over 3.8 million people, was carried out by researchers at the University of Southampton just down the road from us!
So what's in coffee that makes it such a liver-loving drink? While we don't know for sure, it's believed that coffee's antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties might play a role in protecting your liver from damage. Now, before you go full steam ahead and cut every other drink out of the equation - excess coffee isn't a good thing for your liver health, especially if you've got liver disease. It's important to enjoy your coffee as part of a healthy diet and lifestyle (as with all good things!).
