Can drinking coffee and tea prevent liver disease?

Can drinking coffee and tea prevent liver disease?
A:

Chronic liver disease is a serious condition and a leading cause of death among people across the world. The number of liver cancer cases have over took to become the leading cancer since 2014, and fatty liver disease/ NASH is set to become the leading cause of liver transplant in 2020.

Protects your liver
In the view of this, liver protection to prevent chronic liver disease is quickly becoming more important than ever.

So what can we do to prevent liver disease? The obvious ways is indeed lifestyle adjustment, i.e.: avoiding alcohol, maintaining an active, healthy lifestyle may ward off obesity, which is a risk factor for a fatty liver.

What about Coffee and Tea?
Researcher might have found a new way to help us to protect liver health a little bit more.  A new research published in the Journal of Hepatology found that coffee and tea might be able to help in preventing liver injury. A team of scientists led by Sarwa Darwish Murad, Ph.D., a hepatologist at the Erasmus MC University Medical Center in Rotterdam in the Netherlands, set out to examine the impact of coffee and tea consumption on liver health.

 

The study revealed that frequent coffee and herbal tea consumption consistently correlated with a significantly lower risk of liver stiffness. These results were independent of lifestyle factors or BMI.

 

Additionally, the researchers found that the beneficial effect of coffee on liver stiffness (fibrosis) could be seen both in participants who had a fatty liver and those who did not. This indicated to the authors that frequent coffee and tea intake may prevent liver fibrosis long before the signs of liver disease start to appear. But more studies are needed to understand the mechanisms responsible for this association.

Prevention is the way to go
The direction of such research is encouraging, because this indicates researchers and professionals are focusing more on prevention instead of looking for a cure, for many years, people mainly focus on a miracle cure for liver disease, but in fact, protection for liver during our daily life is much more important.

Especially in our current lifestyle, fills with unhealthy diet, addictive, medications, chemical substances and with the lack of exercises, protection means for our liver will be the key to prevent liver problems and to a healthier life.

ALT and AST are enzymes that are normally predominantly contained within liver cells. If the liver is injured or damaged, the liver cells spill these enzymes into the blood, raising the AST and ALT enzyme levels in the blood, and we can use it as a measurement of liver injury.   What are the differences between ALT and AST? AST is normally found in a variety of tissues including liver, heart, muscle, kidney, and the brain. It is released int

Fibrosis is scarring of the liver that results from chronic inflammation. It is a process where the damaged, dying liver cells are replaced by fibrous scar tissue, causing the liver to become hard.

A normal liver is at a stage between F0 and F1. F2 denotes light fibrosis, and F3 indicates severe fibrosis. When scar tissue build
