Coffee drinks are well known as useful as antioxidants. A large-scale study in the United States even recently found that drinking coffee may reduce the risk of diabetes mellitus.

Studies involving more than 123,000 adults found that people who drank more than one cup a day for four years decreased the risk of suffering from diabetes. The conclusions obtained through comparison with other groups who drank less than that.

“There seems to be a dose effect of coffee consumption with a reduced risk of diabetes,” said study leader Frank Hu, professor of nutrition and epidemiology at the Harvard School of Public Health.

According to the study, more and more coffee consumption decreasing diabetes risk faced by someone. Coffee drinking three to five cups of coffee a day can reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes significantly.

Nevertheless, not everyone can drink coffee in very much in a day. Because the caffeine in coffee is a stimulant that keeps people awake, alert, and makes the heart palpitations.
