Coffee drinkers, rejoice. Drinking at least three cups of coffee a day may decrease your risk of developing Type 2 diabetes, according to the latest research spotlighting the health benefits of the noble caffeine bean.

The findings, published by the Institute for Scientific Information on Coffee, are based a series of studies published in the past year compiled by the World Congress on Prevention of Diabetes. Among the key research findings:
  • Epidemiological evidence shows drinking three to four cups of coffee per day is associated with an approximate 25 percent lower risk of developing Type 2 diabetes, compared to consuming none or less than two cups per day.
  • Research suggests with each additional cup of coffee consumed daily, drinkers reduce their relative risk of developing diabetes by 7-8 percent.
  • Caffeine is unlikely to be responsible for the protective effects of coffee, with one study finding both caffeinated and decaffeinated coffee are associated with a lower risk of Type 2 diabetes
  • One study found regular but not decaffeinated coffee was much more protective against diabetes in women of all ethnic groups than in men.
The report also noted some research suggests the caffeine in coffee stimulates metabolism and increases energy expenditure and may play a key role by influencing the blood sugar in the body.

In addition, some scientific evidence indicates coffee contains components that may improve insulin sensitivity by modulating inflammation, affecting hormones, and reducing iron stores.
