Scientists identify health benefits of cafestol in coffee
Scientists have identified two compounds in coffee – cafestol and caffeic acid – that could someday lead to the development of new medications to better prevent and treat type 2 diabetes…
Drinking three to four cups of coffee per day has been shown to decrease the risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
Now, scientists report they have identified two compounds that contribute to this health benefit. Researchers say that this knowledge could someday help them develop new medications to better prevent and treat the disease.
Patients with type 2…
