Default Lyle's Good Article on Coffee

Coffee, Diabetes and Weight Control - Research Review

good read for coffee drinkers..

note:
Quote:
and both the high antioxidant content of coffee along with the magnesium intake may improve insulin sensitivity in the long-term
As someone who supplements magnesium (and I think many others around here do) I thought I would check on how significant this actually is. Findings (nutritiondata.com & "natural calm"- a popular mag supplement):

1 tbsp natural calm: 205 mg
1 espresso shot: 24 mg
1 cup brewed coffee: 7.1 mg

Interesting that the espresso is much higher than coffee.. but still not very much compared to what actual supplementation would call for.

Just thought I'd share.
