Coffee Might Save Your Liver

Contributed by

If you start your day with coffee and end it with cocktails, we have good news for you. A new study from the University of Southampton in the U.K. has found that drinking two cups of coffee per day can reduce the risk of one type of liver disease by 44 percent.

Cirrhosis—a condition caused by toxins that damage the liver, often brought about by excessive drinking—kills millions of people per year. The study’s scientists think that this damage can be reversed by coffee’s anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidative properties.

Although more research needs to be done to completely confirm the study, an extra few cups of coffee can’t hurt. So the next time you go on a bender, remember your liver and reach for a cup or two of joe. If you want to test out this new theory, here are a few coffee-spiked drinks to help stop the damage before it starts.
