Caffeine found in coffee and tea could potentially aid in reducing body fat and lowering the risk of diabetes
Recent research indicates that coffee, green tea, and black tea might contribute to lowering the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. The presence of caffeine in these beverages, and its influence on body fat and weight, could be attributed to this risk reduction. Apart from its potential to enhance metabolism, caffeine offers various other health advantages such as heightened alertness, improved concentration, better exercise performance, and mood enhancement. Nevertheless, experts caution against excessive caffeine consumption due to potential adverse effects like anxiety, sleep disturbances, and restlessness. Moreover, coffee, green tea, and black tea are rich in antioxidants, natural compounds associated with numerous health benefits.

A new genetic study suggests that the caffeine content in these drinks could also play a role in reducing the risk of type 2 diabetes, possibly through its impact on body fat and weight.

"The findings from our study suggest that caffeine might, in part, account for the observed connection between coffee consumption and reduced type 2 diabetes risk," state the researchers.

The outcomes of this study align with previous research indicating a correlation between caffeine intake and a lower risk of type 2 diabetes. Earlier investigations demonstrated that moderate coffee consumption (approximately three to five cups per day) is linked to decreased risks of type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular diseases.

Another study revealed that caffeine consumption leads to a reduction in body fat, a known risk factor for type 2 diabetes.

However, these studies did not specifically analyze the potential effects of caffeine independently from those of antioxidants.

To address this gap, the researchers employed a genetic approach known as Mendelian randomization to assess the impact of blood caffeine levels on body fat and the risk of developing type 2 diabetes, as well as cardiovascular disease outcomes. These cardiovascular outcomes encompassed coronary artery disease, stroke, heart failure, and irregular heart rhythm (atrial fibrillation).
