  1. Coffee helps protect your liver

    Miracle morning drink can become an armor for your liver

    Your liver is your body’s natural filter.

    Imagine what years of abuse has done to it…the toxins…the medications…a few too many drinks now and then…

    It all takes a toll on your liver.

    But it turns out that the secret to reviving it – and protecting it from further abuse – may be in something you probably already enjoy: coffee.

    Because a new study shows that coffee isn’t just a great pick-me-up, but it’s also a great weapon against liver disease.

    According to a report in the journal Ailmentary Pharmacology & Therapeutics, two cups of coffee a day can help ward off liver cirrhosis from drinking too much alcohol.

    Liver cirrhosis is a condition where the liver is scarred due to long-term effects of toxins like alcohol or due to hepatitis C infection. It can lead to liver failure and cancer – causing more than one million deaths worldwide each year.

    Yet regular consumption of the java juice has been shown to slash the risk of dying from the disease by 44 percent.

    Forty-four percent is nothing to sneeze at – we’re talking about potentially ending tens of thousands of cases of liver disease every year.

    You see, coffee has hundreds of biologically active ingredients, including vitamins, oxidative and anti-inflammatory agents, that help heal the body.

    And unlike toxic drugs, coffee is safe, natural and well tolerated by the body.

    Coffee can also fight or prevent cancers of your prostate, skin, esophagus, and more – and the benefits don’t end with cancer. Coffee can also help prevent heart disease, ward off diabetes, slash your stroke risk, boost your mood, protect your brain, and help you live longer.

    That’s a tasty prevention package for your precious liver.

    And while you’re drinking your coffee, make sure you’re not adding anything to it – like sugar, flavored creamers, syrups, whipped cream, or whiskey. After all, you don’t want to do any MORE damage than what’s already been done!

  2. Study proves coffee isn’t bad for your heart

    Link between coffee, irregular heartbeat totally debunked

    Q: I used to drink coffee every day and I read your article recently about how it can help prevent Parkinson’s disease. But I gave it up years ago because I heard the caffeine was bad for my heart. Is there any way to still get the benefits?

    G.R.: If you haven’t had the taste of hot, fully-loaded coffee in a while, this may be your lucky day.

    I don’t have to tell you the number of things that so-called diet experts told us for years were bad for us – only to be proven wrong by science. I’m talking about dark chocolate, red meat, nuts, you name it.

    And it looks like you can add coffee to the list.

    A recent study proved that, in addition to protecting your brain and reducing your cancer risk, coffee doesn’t do a thing to harm your heartbeat.

    Chalk it up to another old wives’ tale.

    The study followed 1,400 healthy coffee, tea and chocolate lovers for a full year. These people wore a device that monitored their heart rhythm all day, every day.

    And even when they increased their caffeine consumption, their heart rates remained exactly the same. No fluttering, no irregular heartbeats… nothing.

    What’s better? Coffee is a source of antioxidants, which can actually lessen your risk for heart disease and lots of other illnesses.

    The bottom line is that as long as you practice moderation, there are lots of things you can enjoy that we used to think were unhealthy. I’m not telling you to walk around with a coffee IV strapped to you – but keep it to 2-4 cups a day and you should be just fine.
