Here’s a piece of good news that will make coffee lovers everywhere smile: drinking coffee in moderation may actually reduce your risk of diabetes. That’s right — you no longer have to feel bad for refilling your morning cup.
A recent study published by the Institute for Scientific Information on Coffee (ISIC) concluded that those who drink 3 to 4 cups of coffee per day have up to a 25% lower risk of developing type II diabetes than those who drink 0 to 2 cups per day. A second study found that each additional cup of coffee consumed each day reduced the relative risk of diabetes by 7 – 8%. So, stop feeling bad for emptying that coffee pot, and keep on sipping.
Of course, in order to experience the health benefits of drinking coffee, it’s important that you drink it black. Research is pretty conclusive that teaspoon after teaspoon of cream and sugar doesn’t do your body any favors. The secret to enjoying black coffee is to purchase very high quality coffee, such as the Hawaiian Ka’u coffee from Hawaii’s Local Buzz. Our award-winning coffee is exceptionally smooth and very low acid. In fact, many folks, when sampling our coffee for the first time, remark with surprise that, while they normally add cream and sugar to their coffee, they don’t feel the need to do so with our coffee.
Coffee is one of life’s greatest pleasures — a simple indulgence that you can enjoy throughout the day. The next time your cup is empty and you’re craving a refill, don’t feel guilty for brewing another pot. Your health and your taste buds, will thank you.
