Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, explained.

Put simply, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease develops when excess fat builds up in liver cells because an individual regularly consumes too much fat for the body to metabolize.

As the Cleveland Clinic's blog has noted, this disease tends to affect people who are overweight or who have diabetes or high cholesterol.

A new study looked at the "anti-fibrotic" effects of coffee.


For this study, which was recently published in the journal Nutrients, a team of researchers in the Division of Gastroenterology & Liver Unit of Canada's University of Alberta hospital recognized the antioxidant properties in coffee and some of its other benefits.

With this in mind, they hypothesized that coffee may reduce the risk of molecular-level scarring in the liver, which, in severe cases, may lead to fatty liver disease, cirrhosis, or even eventual death.

The researchers performed a thorough review.


The team analyzed a collection of 20 studies dated between 2010 and January 2021.

In total, more than 105,000 individuals had participated in those studies that had looked at the effects of diet, and coffee in specific, on the liver.
