Caffeine May Help Lower Body Fat, Type 2 Diabetes Risk

High levels of caffeine in the blood may help reduce body fat and reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes, according to a new study published in the journal BMJ Medicine. The researchers said their aim was not to recommend more coffee, but to demonstrate its potential health benefits. The latest study uses a technique known as Mendelian randomization to determine causality through genetic evidence. The team identified two common genetic mutations associated with the rate of caffeine metabolism, used these mutations to calculate genetically predicted blood caffeine levels, and whether this was associated with low BMI and low body fat. Studies estimate that consuming 100 mg of caffeine per day increases energy expenditure by approximately 100 calories.
