Coffee May Prevent Fatty Liver Fibrosis

Here's just a very short post on another coffee study. This time, the study suggests higher amounts of coffee may offer health benefits to those with fatty liver, where it may reduce the risk of developing fibrosis.

 

The study found that high coffee intake significantly reduced the build up of fibrosis (connective tissue) in the liver of people with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. This study confirms that caffeine consumption (via coffee) reduces fibrosis in people with fatty liver disease in a similar way to that of people with chronic liver disease.

If you've got fatty liver, you may also want to consider supplementation with L-carnitine as I discussed in THIS post (click HERE)
