Millions suffer from diabetes. But the suffering is often unnecessary because there are strategies to reverse diabetes.

There are many factors that contribute to the development of type 2 diabetes, I discuss a number of them in my Natural Treatment Remedies for Type 2 Diabetes blog post. Type 2 diabetes is not something you have to live with if you don’t want to, and that’s because it’s largely controlled by the dietary and lifestyle choices you make.

When it comes to coffee, the contents of your coffee beverage are just as important as the quality of the coffee you are drinking. For instance, drinking a sugar filled latte or mocha is not the same as drinking a cup of brewed, organic black coffee. To keep your insulin response to a minimum opt for drinking organic coffee that has been tested for and is free from mycotoxins (mold).

What Does the Literature Say?

This study shows that drinking up to 4 cups of coffee per day had no significant effect on insulin sensitivity and was positively associated with moderate fat loss.

Another study highlights the inverse relationship between coffee and diabetes mellitus, which means the more coffee you drink the less likely you are to develop diabetes mellitus.

If you are looking for ways to reduce your risk outside of eating a Paleo diet, exercising, and getting plenty of sunshine then look no further than enjoying a few cups of clean, organic coffee.

The bottom line is stay away from coffee drinks that are full of sugar because those will create inflammation in your body and will stress out your insulin response. The more insulin your pancreas is secreting the more likely you are to become insulin resistant, which is a telltale sign of type 2 diabetes.

Quality Matters

When we are choosing what to eat or drink, picking the highest quality foods or beverages is of the utmost importance for several reasons. When it comes to coffee, choosing organic coffee that is tested for mold will virtually eliminate our exposure to mold, pesticides, herbicides, and fungicides that conventionally raised, non-organic coffee is exposed to. This prevents the body, specifically the liver and kidneys, from being bogged down with chemicals, which increases our toxic burden.
