A cup of coffee can give you much more than just an instant energy boost. This is one beverage that many people reach for first thing in the morning. For hardcore coffee lovers, the day doesn't start without a cup of this beverage. Besides giving you a good start to your day, coffee also reduces your risk of many health disorders.
Now according to a new study from the Institute for Scientific Information on Coffee (ISIC), drinking coffee may help reduce the risk of certain digestive disorders, including gallstone disease and pancreatitis. The study also highlighted other beneficial effects that coffee consumption may have on the process of digestion, including supporting gut microflora and promoting gut motility.
According to researchers from the University of Milan in Italy, "Data indicates benefits against common digestive complaints such as constipation, as well as a potential reduction in the risk of more serious conditions like chronic liver diseases." Gallstone disease is a common digestive disorder, caused by the accumulation of gallstones in the gallbladder or bile duct. This affects approximately 10-15 per cent of the adult population.
