There is contradictory research regarding the advantages of coffee in the prevention of arthritis. On the one hand, coffee contains strong polyphenols that can help combat inflammation produced by free radical damage.
Coffee may also protect against the development of gout, according to some studies. However, when it comes to osteoporosis and rheumatoid arthritis, some research indicates that coffee may raise the risk, while others show no increased risk.
You don’t have to stop drinking coffee if you already do. Just remember to eat it in moderation. Since the risk appears to start around 4 cups per day. There’s no reason to start drinking coffee if you don’t like it. Instead, start your day with tea or a smoothie.
