Coffee is one of the most heavily researched products. And researches about coffee have been doing well so far. It has become a very interesting study because despite the fact that coffee has known bad effects, it isn’t as bad as what we think of. Coffee is said to have a good effect for diabetics. According to research, they found out those men who drank coffee more than 6 8-ounce cups of caffeinated coffee per day lowered the risk of type 2 diabetes by 50% and man who drank decaffeinated coffee reduced their risk by 25%. This study consisted of more than 126,000 people who filled out questionnaires and answered other lifestyle questions. Researchers also found out a striking protective effect of caffeinated coffee against incident type 2 diabetes.

Magnesium and phytic acid which are found in coffee may also benefit blood sugar control according to researchers but they could not find a reliable link using the data they had. Coffee also contains a number of phytochemicals, which appear to have high antioxidant activity which the researchers suggested could protect cells that produce insulin in the pancreas against damage, preventing or delaying diabetes.

Researchers are still looking at the relationship between coffee and diabetes, and warn people that 7 cups of coffee per day is enough to create other health problems. The studies are not encouraging people to drink coffee; they are finding ways to prevent some diseases, in this case, diabetes. They also said that coffee can also prevent certain cancers. They are also reminding you to drink in moderation because too much coffee can be very bad to your health. Some known bad effects of coffee are the caffeine content is addictive and unhealthy. Too much caffeine may cause abdominal bleeding, headaches, anxiety, vomiting, diarrhea, palpitation, shaking and high blood sugar. It has been previously associated with increased risk of stroke and rheumatoid arthritis. Studies have shown that caffeine content of coffee can raise levels of stress hormones.

Researches have been continuing this study to give a clearer view on how coffee can prevent diabetes. Although coffee can be good to diabetics, there are certainly better ways to ward off diabetes than drinking coffee. If you really want to reduce the risk of developing diabetes then regular exercise and a healthy diet have been shown to be a much safer and reliable bet. And as always said, you should drink or eat in moderation. Anything too much is bad and something less can also be bad.
