The latest studies by German researchers have shown positive effects of coffee on human health, saying it improves functions of liver and brain.

The studies run by Germany's Green Cross points out that coffee accelerates digestion, and prevents age-related diabetes, chronic liver disease and replacement of liver tissue by fibrous scar tissue.

Drinking at least four cups of coffee a day is also reported to reduce the risk of liver cirrhosis by up to 80 percent.

The report says coffee can help reverse some elements of memory impairment commonly seen in Alzheimer sufferers and improves concentration.

Health promoting ingredients of coffee like chlorogenic acid also play important roles too. Chlorogenic acid is one of the antioxidants found in coffee that can cut nearly in half the risk of Alzheimer's Disease.

February 2, 2010 /EIN PRESSWIRE/ The natural amounts of caffeine found in coffee and green tea strongly suppresses the growth of brain cancer causing cells, according to South Korean researchers.

The study performed on animals showed that caffeine kept in check the growth of inositol trisphosphate receptors (IP3R) closely linked to glioblastoma, the most

common and aggressive brain tumor found in humans. Researchers say that calcium plays a role in spreading the tumor cells, but caffeine counteracts that spread.

The amounts of caffeine used in the tests were equivalent to two to five cups of coffee or green tea per day.
