Eating and drinking coffee after waking up prevents the development of type 2 diabetes, show research. Positive effects are observed when drinking with both caffeine and without it. People who give up breakfast tend to eat unhealthy throughout the day, suggest the epidemiological study of the German Diabetes Center (DDZ), published in The Journal of Nutrition.
Nutritionists analyzed data from 96,175 participants, of whom 4,935 diabetics developed during the study. The study also found that obese people are more likely to leave breakfast. Obesity is an important risk factor for type 2 diabetes.
So it's always good to have breakfast. But what should you drink at breakfast? According to the meta-research [pesquisa que avalia outros estudos] Institute of Scientific Information on Coffee (ISIC), the best morning drink is coffee.
According to a survey published during the last meeting of the European Society for Diabetes Research in October, coffee can reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes by 25%.
Despite the financing of six large European coffee companies, ISIC operates independently and in cooperation with several universities.
In meta-study, Matthias Carlström, professor of medicine and pharmacology at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, evaluated 30 recent scientific studies on coffee consumption and the risk of type 2 diabetes, with a total of 1 210 210 participants.
Kjeld Hermansen, a professor of medicine at the Aarhus University Hospital, combines the protective effect of coffee with antioxidant beverage ingredients. According to him, coffee helps to prevent inflammation and stimulates, due to heat, metabolism and diversity of gastrointestinal tract microbiome.
Hermansen recommends drinking three to four cups of coffee a day – both for women and men. Meta-analyzes suggest that caffeine, both with and without caffeine, also reduces the risk of type 2 diabetes.
