Daily cup of drip coffee can improve liver function

According to a report by the Kyodo News Agency, according to a survey conducted by the research team of the Osaka City University, patients with type C chronic liver disease such as hepatitis and cirrhosis have a cup of drip coffee every day, and their liver function can be effectively improved. The findings were published on the American online journal Plos One on the 11th.

The study compared the relationship between the changes in alanine aminotransferase and the frequency of coffee consumption in 376 people aged 20-80 years old in the Osaka City University Hospital.

The study found that people who drank more than one cup of coffee every day had a normal or reduced alanine aminotransferase after one year compared with those who did not drink, and the greater the amount of drink, the better the effect.

Although the cause is not clear, drinking canned coffee or instant coffee does not have the effect of dripping coffee.

Associate Professor Sasaki Yasaka, who studied gerontology in the research team, said: “Hepatitis will turn into cirrhosis after 10-20 years. I hope that the research will have further research results.” Prior to this, the team’s Dao Tengzi lecturer (public) Hygiene majors have published research results on the efficacy of coffee in inhibiting liver cancer.
