More Justification for My Coffee Habit
This new human clinical trial has given more support to coffee's health benefits, where 3 to 4 cups of a coffee blend (roasted coffee with green coffee beans) over 4 weeks protected against oxidative damage to DNA, and reduced body weight and body fat.
While this study looked at a a blend that used green coffee beans (which is much higher in chlorogenic acid, which in turn is likely responsible for the greater effect on body weight and body fat, in addition to blood glucose control), roasted beans will offer similar benefits, but just to a smaller extent.
