Diabetes Diet: Consuming these many cups of coffee and green tea daily may reduce the death rate.

Concern has been raised by the increasing incidence of diabetes around the world. Diabetes can be difficult to manage. It may also lead to heart disease, dementia, and cancer. These conditions can hurt your quality of life. While medical treatment can be helpful, lifestyle and diet modifications are still more effective. Green tea and coffee are considered viable options. A new study has shown that diabetes patients who drink green tea and coffee have a lower death rate. This research uncovered 4923 type 2 diabetics with a mean age of 66. Two thousand one hundred ninety were males, and 2133 were females. The self-administered questionnaires were used to assess green tea and coffee consumption.

This prospective study found that patients with type 2 diabetes who drank more green tea and coffee had lower all-cause mortality. After adjusting for possible confounders, the association remained significant. The impact of each beverage on mortality was independent. The report stated that the combination of green tea and coffee significantly decreased all-cause mortality risk by 63%.”

Camellia sinensis green tea is made from fresh Camellia sinensis leaves. It contains phenolic compounds and theanine. Both coffee and green tea contain bioactive chemicals such as caffeine and phenolic compounds. They also have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits.

The limitations of this study must be considered. The first is that green tea and coffee consumption was based on self-reported data. Second, green tea or coffee availability in Japan might not be as good as in other parts.
