    Coffee Lowers Type 2 Diabetes Risk (Plus, 3 More Reasons It's Good For You)

    If you love coffee, you’ll love this even more: Drinking just one and a half extra cups per day over a period of four years reduces a person’s risk of developing type 2 diabetes on average by 11 percent, according to a study of 123,733 people that was published Thursday in the journal Diabetologia.

    What’s more, the study found that people who decreased their intake by a cup or more per day had a 17 percent higher risk for developing Type 2 diabetes. And those who drank the most coffee (three cups or more per day) and maintained that consumption had a 37 percent lower risk than people who consistently drank one cup or less per day.

    Here Is What Coffee Actually Does To Your Brain

    The first thing to know is that part of your natural tiredness comes from a molecule called adenosine, which is produced by your body while it chugs along through the day. "While you sleep, the concentration of adenosine declines, gradually promoting wakefulness," the video explains. Meanwhile, the more adenosine that builds up, the sleepier you feel.

    Your morning coffee is able to hijack that process because caffeine looks a lot like adenosine to your brain cells:
