This is What 2 Cups of Coffee Per Day Can Do to Your Liver

August 14, 2019

This is What 2 Cups of Coffee Per Day Can
Do to Your Liver For many of us, mornings aren’t complete
without a cup or two of coffee. In fact, it is one of the world’s most popular
beverages with more than 450 billion cups being consumed each year. Coffee has yet to be considered a healthy
drink, but many studies suggest that regular, moderate coffee consumption can lower a person’s
risk of developing a range of liver diseases including cancer, fibrosis and cirrhosis. Coffee has a high antioxidant level and is
highly beneficial for your liver health. Research even hints at its anticancer and
anti-inflammatory properties. To reap the benefits of coffee, stick to just
2 or 3 cups per day and avoid drinking it before bedtime. Coffee and Liver Cirrhosis
Cirrhosis is a chronic liver disease that replaces healthy liver tissue with scar tissue,
resulting in blockage of blood flow to the liver. This in turn affects liver functioning. Cirrhosis causes around 1 million deaths every
year, and can be caused by excessive alcohol consumption, hepatitis infections, immune
disorders and fatty liver disease. According to the Global Burden of Disease
Study (2013), cirrhosis resulted in 1.2 million deaths in 2013, up from 0.8 million deaths
in 1990. Increasing your coffee intake to 2 cups daily
may help reduce your chances of developing alcohol-related cirrhosis. This is what a 2016 study published in Alimentary
Pharmacology and Therapeutics says. In the study, researchers analyzed nine different
studies that examined the relationship between coffee consumption and the risk of cirrhosis. The nine studies were published between 1994
and 2015 and involved 1990 cases and 432 133 participants. Eight studies showed that increasing coffee
consumption by 2 cups per day was associated with a statistically significant reduction
in the risk of cirrhosis. The caffeine in coffee metabolizes into a
substance called paraxanthine, which prevents the growth of connective tissue, so the development
of liver cirrhosis is postponed. Coffee and Liver Cancer
Liver cancer is one of the leading causes of cancer deaths worldwide. The American Cancer Society estimates that
in 2016 about 39,230 new cases of liver cancer will be diagnosed in the U.S. Also, about 27,170 people are likely to die
from liver cancer in 2016. To lower your risk of liver cancer, drink
2 cups of coffee daily. Coffee contains about 100 active compounds
including antioxidants, polyphenols and caffeine, which play a key role in reducing the risk
of liver cancer. Coffee also affects liver enzymes. A 2005 study published in the International
Journal of Cancer for the first time concluded that coffee intake is significantly associated
with a decreased incidence of liver cancer. Even people with a history of liver disease
showed an inverse association between coffee consumption and the risk of liver cancer. Another meta-analysis published in Gastroenterology
in 2007 suggests that an increased consumption of coffee may reduce the risk of liver cancer. It shows that the risk of liver cancer is
reduced by 44 percent for each 2 daily cups. Similarly, a 2013 study published in BMC Gastroenterology
suggested an inverse association between coffee consumption and liver cancer. Coffee and Hepatitis C
Coffee is even beneficial for hepatitis C-related liver disease. According to the World Health Organization,
over 130 to 150 million people have chronic hepatitis C.
It is a contagious disease that causes inflammation and infection of the liver. It can range in severity and be classified
as either acute or chronic. There is no vaccination to prevent hepatitis
C. In a 2009 study published in Hepatology, some
766 hepatitis C-infected patients were analyzed for nearly four years. It was found that regular coffee consumption
was statistically significantly associated with lower rates of disease progression. In a 2011 study published in the Journal of
Hepatology, a total of 238 treatment-naïve patients with chronic hepatitis C (CHC) were
studied. In this study, the potential hepatoprotective
properties of caffeine were found to be effective in protecting against chronic liver diseases. Caffeine intake of greater than 408 mg/day
(3 cups or more) is associated with reduced histological activity in patients with CHC. A hospital-based cohort study in 2013 included
a total 376 patients suffering from hepatitis C virus (HCV). For 12 months, researchers examined the effect
of coffee consumption on serum alanine aminotransferase (ALT) level among these patients. After one year, it was found that daily consumption
of filtered coffee had a beneficial effect on the stabilization of ALT levels. This study was published in PLOS One journal. Coffee and Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease
Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease is a condition in which fat builds up in the liver for reasons
unrelated to drinking alcohol. This disease is common and is a reversible
condition that can be resolved with lifestyle and dietary changes. One dietary change is drinking 2 cups of coffee
per day. In a 2010 study published in Digestive Disease
and Sciences, researchers compared 137 patients with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease with
a group of 108 other patients. The study findings showed a positive connection
between coffee intake and higher degree of bright liver (measured by ultrasound bright
liver score), along with insulin resistance and obesity. Later, a 2012 study published in Alimentary
Pharmacology & Therapeutics found caffeine to have a protective effect in patients with
nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. Another 2012 study published in the Annals
of Hepatology reports that the peripheral antioxidant activity of caffeine in coffee
is associated with lower grade nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. Recently, a meta-analysis of 118 studies found
that although total caffeine intake is not associated with the prevalence or hepatic
fibrosis of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, regular coffee caffeine consumption may significantly
reduce hepatic fibrosis in patients with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. This study is published in Therapeutic Advances
in Gastroenterology in 2016. Other potential health benefits of coffee
(when consumed in moderation) include: Lowering the risk of colorectal cancer
Lowering the risk of developing multiple sclerosis Reducing the risk of premature death
Lighting mood and fighting depression Protecting against Type 2 diabetes
Reducing your chances of getting skin cancer Boosting your physical performance
Helping you burn fat and lose weight These benefits can be enjoyed only when you
drink coffee in moderation, which means not more than 3 cups a day. High intake of coffee can cause insomnia,
anxiety, restlessness and high cholesterol. In addition, avoid coffee if you’re pregnant. Tips to drink coffee in a healthier way
Always choose a quality brand, preferably organic coffee. Buy whole coffee beans and grind them at home
to enjoy better taste and quality. Drink just 2 or 3 cups of coffee per day and
not more than that. Do not drink coffee on an empty stomach as
it can cause a sharp drop in blood sugar, which can then set up more sugar cravings. Do not drink coffee after 2 p.m.
Avoid sugar or artificial sweetener in your coffee. Do not use commercial low-fat and artificial
creamers. Drink it after having your meal. To improve the taste, add a little bit of
cinnamon powder. Brew your coffee using a paper filter. Last but not least, make sure that you share
this very useful information with your friends and family. You may help someone in need. Thank you and have a nice day!

    I believe that it's not considered a healthy drink because the way a lot of people drink it makes it unhealthy. If you have black coffee, it's good for you. If you say that coffee is good for you, meaning drinking it black, then people will add all sorts of shit to it, cream and sugar and chocolate etc, and consider it "coffee," therefore it must be "healthy." I'm no saint, either. I don't add sugar or sweeteners to it. I use cream. Perhaps not the best, but not nearly the worst for you.

    Related point to those being made in the video, fatty liver disease and ultimately cirrhosis is not only caused by alcohol, it's also caused by excessive amounts of fructose. Unlike glucose, which is used throughout the body as an energy source (not the best, but still), fructose is not, and is send directly to the liver for processing. The wear and tear of dealing with high amounts of fructose does the same damage as the wear and tear of dealing with too much alcohol, with identical results, known as 'non-alcoholic fatty liver disease'. And it's not just High Fructose Corn Syrup, which is 45% glucose/55% fructose, it's regular table sugar (sucrose) which is 50%/50%; not much real difference. Enjoy your coffee and use the Coke to clean the toilet bowl.
