Coffee Protects Your DNA!

Yes it smells amazing, tastes divine and helps stimulate our senses so we can take on the day, but it’s healthy too. The unique antioxidant profile found in coffee helps contribute to our heart health and liver function, protects against type 2 diabetes, Parkinson’s and even skin cancer.

Coffee is associated with various health benefits, from providing protection to the heart to guarding against diabetes; a new study adds a new one: helping to keep the DNA intact. Researchers at the University of Kaiserslautern in Germany have found that coffee contributes to a decrease in oxidative damage of white blood cells that also harms DNA. Participants who were fed with a blend rich in active compounds had fewer broken DNA strands in the white blood cells than those who did not consume the mix. In fact, coffee is a drink with a high concentration of bioactive compounds known as chlorogenic acids, which are naturally present in the plant and are also made during the processing of the coffee. Chlorogenic acids are potent antioxidants. On top of that, they also have anti-inflammatory properties. One of such a chemical known as caffeoylquinic acid (CQA) triggers an increase in the levels of antioxidant enxymes and removes excess molecules of reactive oxygen species (ROS) that are normal by-products of metabolism but can cause cell damage if in excess. This most recent study examined 84 healthy men for 4 weeks. Half the men were given 750 ml of a special roasted Arabica coffee, and half were given 750 ml of water each day. Before the study commenced, both groups showed similar levels of spontaneous DNA breaks. Over the course of the study, the coffee group showed a 27% overall difference in spontaneous DNA breaks, a significant difference to say the least. The researchers concluded that this apparent positive effect can be considered to be beneficial for our health.
