Health ben­e­fits to be found in a cuppa

The Sun (Malaysia) - - WHERE2EAT -

IN­TER­NA­TIONAL Cof­fee Day fell on Oct 1. Here we round up some of the ways cof­fee can boost health, giv­ing you a good rea­son to say yes to an­other cup of joe.

Cof­fee is good for the heart South Korean re­searchers have found that cof­fee may boost heart health, with those who drink three to five cups of cof­fee a day ben­e­fit­ing from a lower risk of clogged ar­ter­ies that could lead to se­ri­ous heart prob­lems.

Cof­fee lower risk of di­a­betes A 2014 study found that those who in­creased their daily caf­feine in­take by about 1.5 cups of cof­fee a day over a four-year pe­riod had an 11% lower risk for adult-on­set di­a­betes than those whose in­take re­mained the same.

The find­ings also showed that those who made mod­er­ate to large de­creases in in­take (about two cups a day) had an 18% higher risk of de­vel­op­ing the dis­ease, sug­gest­ing that cof­fee could have a short-term ef­fect.

Cof­fee re­duces risk of mul­ti­ple scle­ro­sis The find­ings of a US and Swedish study which com­pared more than 1,000 pa­tients with mul­ti­ple scle­ro­sis to a sim­i­lar num­ber of healthy peo­ple, sug­gested that in­di­vid­u­als who drink four to six cups of cof­fee daily may be less likely to de­velop the dis­ease.

Cof­fee can im­prove erec­tile dys­func­tion A study by the Univer­sity of Texas Health Science Cen­tre found that men who drank two to three cups of cof­fee a day were less likely to have erec­tile dys­func­tion (ED).

Pub­lished in 2015 in the jour­nal PLOS ONE, the find­ings showed that men who con­sumed 85-170mg of caf­feine a day were 42% less likely to re­port ED, while those who drank 171-303mg daily were 39% less likely, when com­pared to those who only drank 0-7mg a day. – AFP-Re­laxnews or­gan­is­ing the con­test for our loyal cus­tomers who keep com­ing back for our de­li­cious menu of sig­na­ture ribs, world-fa­mous onion loaf and other flame-grilled en­trées.”
