Cause of Fatigue:

Dr. Berg answers the question, is coffee bad for the liver. Coffee is hepatoprotective, which means it has the ability to protect the liver and liver cells and even decrease liver enzymes. The phytonutrients (or the plant-based chemical antioxidant) in the coffee are the compounds that can protect and benefit the liver. One of the causes of liver damage is high insulin. Coffee has a lot more antioxidants than green tea and red wine and when the beans are roasted it increased the antioxidants.

Health Benefits of Phytonutrients
