Coffee lovers, rejoice – because a moderate intake of your favorite cuppa could reap benefits for your health, according to a new study.

Axar.az reports citing foreign media that consuming up to four cups of coffee on a daily basis could help reduce your risk of type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure, a study has found.

Scientists discovered both “an association between coffee consumption and a decreased risk of type two diabetes" and that "long-term coffee consumption is associated with a decreased risk of hypertension", in a study conducted jointly by research teams at the universities of Navarre in Spain and Catania in Italy.

This is because a “moderate consumption” of the popular hot drink was positively associated with lowered metabolic syndrome risk-reducing an individual’s risk by an average of 26 percent.

Metabolic syndrome is an umbrella term for a number of conditions that often occur together and increase the risk of diabetes, stroke and heart disease. This includes obesity, high blood pressure, high blood triglycerides, low levels of HDL cholesterol and insulin resistance.

But be warned: any more than this and you could lose the benefit altogether, as any positive effects from coffee consumption disappeared after more than four cups.

Assistant professor Giuseppe Grosso’s research suggested the positive correlation might be down to the presence of polyphenols – a type of micronutrient – in coffee.
