Pinkies Up to Reduce Diabetes Risk

Pinkies Up to Reduce Diabetes Risk

On a blustery, cold winter day, a cozy cup of hot coffee or tea can be just what the doctor ordered to warm you up — and reduce your risk of developing type 2 diabetes. The benefits are sipped whether you prefer caffeinated or decaf coffee or tea.

A recent analysis of studies published in the Archives of Internal Medicine found:

* People who drank three to four cups of coffee per day had a nearly 25 percent lower risk of diabetes than those who drank none or just two cups a day.

* Those who drank three to four cups of decaf coffee per day had about one-third lower risk of diabetes than those who drank none.

* Tea drinkers showed a one-fifth lower risk of diabetes over those drinking no tea.

But drinking coffee or tea is just one tool to fight developing diabetes. Weight loss — even just 5 to 10 percent of your bodyweight — along with daily physical activity such as a brisk 30-minute walk can reduce your risk of developing diabetes by 40 to 50 percent.

Another tool to add to your fight against diabetes is Relìv’s GlucAffect®, a powerful nutritional supplement clinically proven to reduce blood sugar levels and encourage weight loss. GlucAffect addresses key symptoms of metabolic syndrome, a known precursor to diabetes.

You can stir GlucAffect into your coffee or tea for rich, cinnamon cream flavor. Or try Relìvables™ All-Natural Sweetener with zero calories and a full gram of healthy fiber. Either way you take your coffee or tea, Relìv can help you make it even healthier. So drink to good health!
