Common Drink Treats Diabetes and Its ComplicationsMetabolic syndrome is the precursor to diabetes.

It involves obesity, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, moderately high blood sugar, and the beginnings of some insulin resistance.

If this condition is not nipped in the bud, it will progress to full-blown type 2 diabetes.

New research presented by the Institute for Scientific Information reveals how one common drink that most of us love will treat not just type 2 diabetes but also the complications associated with metabolic syndrome as well.

This research was presented in Dublin at the 13th European Nutrition Conference organized by the Federation of European Nutrition Societies.

The researchers reviewed many large studies.

Moderate coffee drinkers were less likely to have high blood pressure and other forms of cardiovascular disease. It also reduced the risk of premature death.

The effects of coffee on obesity and cholesterol were weaker, but some studies have concluded that coffee could help mitigate these components of metabolic syndrome.

The lead researcher, Professor Grosso, suggested that coffee’s polyphenols might be responsible for its beneficial effects, since the same findings regarding the metabolic syndrome were obtained when they tested nuts and tea together with coffee. Phenolic acids and flavonoids were the two main components that appeared to be beneficial.

Coffee alone will not fend off metabolic syndrome and diabetes, but if you combine up to four cups a day with exercise and a diet low in refined grains and sugar, you are on the right track.

So, if coffee is not enough, what is? Thankfully, you can prevent (and even cure) your diabetes by following these three steps, starting today…
