On a blustery, cold winter day, a cozy cup of hot coffee or tea can be just what the doctor ordered to warm you up — and reduce your risk of developing type 2 diabetes. The benefits are sipped whether you prefer caffeinated or decaf coffee or tea.
A recent analysis of studies published in the Archives of Internal Medicine found:
- People who drank three to four cups of coffee per day had a nearly 25 percent lower risk of diabetes than those who drank none or just two cups a day.
- Those who drank three to four cups of decaf coffee per day had about one-third lower risk of diabetes than those who drank none.
- Tea drinkers showed a one-fifth lower risk of diabetes over those drinking no tea.
Drinking coffee or tea is just one tool to fight developing diabetes. Weight loss — even just 5 to 10 percent of your body weight — along with daily physical activity such as a brisk 30-minute walk can reduce your risk of developing diabetes by 40 to 50 percent.
Another tool to add to your fight against diabetes is Reliv’s GlucAffect®, a powerful nutritional supplement clinically proven to reduce blood sugar levels and encourage weight loss. GlucAffect addresses key symptoms of metabolic syndrome, a known precursor to diabetes.
