New research points to coffee’s ability to minimize the progression of liver disease, including cutting the risk of alcohol-related cirrhosis. This study concludes coffee has no such effect on cirrhosis caused by other means, such as Hepatitis C (although other studies have found some positive effect in the past). Find out more about how coffee can further your own efforts to support and protect your liver.

The healthcare community has done its fair share of investigating the effects of drinking coffee, and a subsequent array of health warnings and encouragements have been issued regarding its regular consumption.

Since the liver processes all that we ingest, people living with liver disease, including hepatitis, must be extra vigilant in watching what enters their digestive system. Coffee is turning heads as a liver cancer and cirrhosis preventative. It has also been noted as a factor in reducing insulin resistance, a prominent liver disease risk factor. The keys to accentuating coffee’s benefits while avoiding any harm, are to stay within moderation, be aware of conditions contraindicating its consumption, and be careful of what you add to your brew.

While a recent study states coffee reduces the risk of alcohol-related cirrhosis but has no effect on cirrhosis caused by Hepatitis C, there is research indicating that moderate coffee consumption provides several liver-related health benefits.
