If you’re a fan of coffee, this article will give you yet another reason to pour yourself a second cup. If coffee’s not your thing, you may want to reconsider for the sake of your good health.

Analyses of studies in which the coffee-drinking habits of people in both United States and Sweden were reviewed shows that coffee may help reduce the risk of multiple sclerosis (MS), a debilitating nervous system condition that affects over 2 million people worldwide.

The findings, which are slated to be presented at the American Academy of Neurology’s (AAN) 67th Annual Meeting in Washington, DC in April 2015, state that Americans who did not consume coffee were approximately one and a half times more likely to develop MS compared to people who enjoyed over four cups daily the year prior to the development of MS symptoms.

The coffee habits of Swedes were also part of this study; coffee consumption among those individuals was also found to have benefits similar to the United States findings. The Swedish study that was analyzed found that people who did not drink any coffee are also about one and a half times more likely to have an increased risk of developing MS when compared to those who drank a minimum of six cups of coffee every day one year prior to the development of related symptoms.

In this particular study, researchers assessed information based on over 1,600 Swedes with MS as well as over 2,800 healthy people in Sweden, while the U.S. study was comprised of about 1,160 people with the disease and 1,172 healthy people. In both instances, factors such as age, mass body index and whether or not an individual engaged in unhealthy habits such as smoking, were taken into consideration. Ingestion of coffee among these people was compared during the same timeframe.

Beyond MS: the many health benefits of drinking coffee

According to study author Ellen Mowry, MD, MCR, with Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore, “Caffeine intake has been associated with a reduced risk of Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases, and our study shows that coffee intake may also protect against MS, supporting the idea that the drug may have protective effects for the brain.” Mowry is also a member of the American Academy of Neurology, where these findings have been made public and are set to be elaborated upon during the upcoming AAN Annual Meeting. “Caffeine should be studied for its impact on relapses and long-term disability in MS as well,” she says.
