Scientists have conducted research and found that the most useful drink is filter coffee.

How to prepare filter coffee
Filter coffee is prepared using paper filters, in particular, purover and Kemex.
This type of drink is most popular in Scandinavia and America. Filter coffee is prepared in a drip coffee machine: medium or coarse grains are poured into a special filter and poured over with hot water. Serve the drink in large mugs of 200-220 ml.

Scientists also note that two to three cups of coffee reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes by 60%.
All due to the fact that coffee has an antioxidant effect. In addition, filter paper holds diterpins, molecules that affect blood sugar levels.
But brewed coffee, which is prepared by heating coffee beans on a fire, is not good for human health.

To differentiate the risk of diabetes of brewed and filtered coffee, a new technique was used – metabolomics – a method for studying the chemical composition of tissues and body fluids.
Metabolomics allows you to identify the concentration of specific molecules in the blood from a given food or drink and use this as an objective measure of consumption, as traditional surveys can give false results.
