Coffee is one of the most popular drinks in the Arab world. Lots of scientists exploring the health effects of this habit. Overall, those studies spell good news for liver health.
According to researchers, “Coffee is especially helpful when it comes to nonalcoholic fatty liver disease.”
Over time, many non-useful habits like drinking alcoholic beverages can cause cirrhosis or scarring of the liver. That scarring can lead to liver cancer or liver failure.
On the other hand, research shows that people who drink a lot of coffee have a lower risk of developing nonalcoholic fatty liver disease.
It also protects people who already have liver problems. There’s evidence that coffee is beneficial for people with hepatitis C, a virus that infects the liver and can lead to cirrhosis and liver cancer.
A study published in international scientific magazines showed that as little as 1 cup of coffee consumed daily resulted in a 15% reduction in risk of death from chronic liver disease; 4 cups daily was associated with a 71% reduction, suggesting a dose-dependent response. Ultimately, it appears that the best effects are observed at about 3 cups per day.
Drinking coffee keeps your liver healthy. Researchers say it’s significant to get vaccinated against hepatitis A and hepatitis B viruses, which both damage the liver.
