Diabetes is a fast-track ticket to an early grave. Well, that’s what everyone who is part of the medical establishment will SAY to you, anyway.
You’ll be told you’ve got the disease now, and there’s no going back. And they will insist that the best you can hope for is to limit a little of the damage to keep you out of your death bed just a bit longer.
Well, my friend, that’s nothing but a dangerous myth.
The truth is there are simple steps you can take to help reverse some of the worst diabetes-linked effects. In fact, these easy to adopt habits not only will work to fight off the damage, but they can also help ensure you live a LONG and HEALTHY life despite the disease.
Because sometimes it’s the smallest actions that deliver the biggest results.
For example, did you know that walking just two hours a week can cut your risk of early death by 39 percent? That’s less than 20 minutes a day, yet it delivers something NO DRUG in the world can.
Now, new research reveals one more easy action that could add years to your life. And odds are, it’s something you already do.
Diabetes? Slash early death risk up to 63% with this combo
If you love coffee or adore green tea, then you’re going to really dig this new study. As a fan of BOTH, I sure did. It turns out drinking either… or both… could cut your risk of an early death.
And if you have diabetes, in some cases drastically.
Just one cup of green tea a day can cut your early death risk by 15 percent. While a mug of coffee could whittle it down by another 12 percent. And if you’re a brew fan like me this next part makes it even better.
Researchers say the MORE you drink, the BIGGER the benefit. Two or more cups of coffee will cut the risk by 41 percent. While two cups of green tea will slash those odds by 27 percent and four cups by 40 percent.
But wait, it gets even better. Incredibly, the study found if you drink BOTH daily, the benefit could jump to as much as a 63 percent reduction in early death risk for folks with diabetes.
Coffee and green tea bring BIG health benefits
You don’t have to dig too deeply to begin to see why both of these brews are winners.
Coffee and green tea contain caffeine. This natural stimulant delivers that all-important brain boost coffee and tea fans rely on. Plus, caffeine has also been shown to help fight off the effects of aging in the brain, speed up your all-important metabolism, and more.
But beyond that caffeine kick, each brew delivers its own very special set of benefits:
- Green tea: This delicious beverage is a top source of the inflammation-easing and cancer-fighting antioxidant epigallocatechin gallate, or EGCG for short. It’s also loaded with theanine, phenolic compound, and more.
- Coffee: America’s favorite brew, coffee, is loaded with healthy minerals as well as the B vitamin niacin. Niacin helps open up blood vessels to keep your circulation speeding along. Coffee also has its own phenolic compounds, including chlorogenic acid, which can fight off both oxidation and inflammation. Chlorogenic acid can also help control blood sugar and may even enhance weight loss.

These health benefits are great for anyone. But if you have diabetes, they aren’t just benefits. They’re ESSENTIAL ways to help tame raging inflammation, control high blood sugar, improve sluggish circulation, and fight the damage of this disease.
And that, my friend, is why this study – and others – have found that coffee and green tea can help extend the lives of people with chronic disease, including (or especially) diabetes.
Just one note about green tea. It’s very sensitive to the soil it grows in. If it contains healthy minerals, it will suck them right up into the leaves. But if the soil is polluted, it’ll suck those dangerous chemicals up, too – including heavy metals and fluorine (the main element in fluoride).
This doesn’t mean you shouldn’t drink green tea. Just be careful about where it’s grown. Avoid anything from China or India which don’t have strict enough regulations about this. Ideally, stick to U.S. grown organics.
