Consumption of Coffee, Linked To Estrogen Depletion

As per a research by the researchers from National Institutes of Health and various other institutions, Asian women who consumed caffeine on mean rate of 200 milligrams or more per day, had high levels of estrogen when compared to those women who consumed less caffeine. However, it was found that white women who consumed more caffeine every day had slightly lower levels of estrogen than the black women who consumed more caffeine every day who were found to have an elevated level of estrogen. This hypothesis was not proved scientifically. Caffeine can be consumed by any of the three main sources, of which these were the main:

  • Caffeinated soda
  • Green tea
  • Coffee and
  • Black tea

But studies proved that coffee has high quantity of caffeine and this showed that consuming 200 milligrams of caffeine from coffee resulted in elevated level of estrogen. Also the consumption of caffeinated soda, green tea or black tea in increased quantity also resulted in higher levels of estrogen. A group of women took part in the research activity where a study was conducted on them which proved that the change in estrogen level had no impact on the ovulation. While the studies which were conducted on animals proved that the intake of caffeine might affect the ovulation.

But these variations or changes in the level of estrogen in short term did not have much pronounced effects. Researchers say they are well aware that the changes in the level of estrogen are connected to various disorders like ovarian cancer, breast cancer, osteoporosis and endometriosis. This is because the long term consumption of coffee or caffeine has significant influence on the estrogen level in long term and it can also lead to many disorders. 250 women participated in this study and this study proved that if the details from the women were collected across two menstrual cycles, it was probable that the results about the association of caffeine with hormones were much precise. The researchers also put forward that study participants were mush racially diverse than those participants who participated in earlier studies.

The Specialty Coffee Association of America says that “over 50% of Americans over 18 years of age drink coffee every day. This represents over 150 million daily drinkers. 30 million American adults drink specialty coffee beverages daily; which include a mocha, latte, espresso, café mocha, cappuccino, frozen/iced coffee beverages, etc.”
