Good news ladies; your absolutely necessary morning coffee — and that five-o’clock glass of wine — are good for your gut health! A new study found that consuming coffee and wine (in moderation, of course) helped maintain the beneficial bacteria found in the gut.

Dutch researchers surveyed over 1,100 people on their diet, medicine prescriptions, and overall health. After, they studied the participants gut DNA from their stool.

They found that those who drank tea, coffee, and wine had more diverse gut bacteria than those who didn’t. The other foods they concluded are good for gut health? Yogurt, buttermilk, fruits and vegetables. Whole milk and high calorie diets, on the other hand, were shown to decrease the good bacteria.

Definitely something to drink to, right? Cheers!
