Food Therapy: Coffee and Coffee Caffeine, A Potent Mediator of Sex Hormones?

By Kyle J. Norton

In compared to herbal medicine, food therapy even takes longer, sometimes more than six months to ease the symptoms, depending to stages of the treatment which directly address to the cause of disease.

Coffee, a popular and social beverage all over the world, particularly in the West, is a drink made from roasted bean from the Coffea plant, native to tropical Africa and Madagascar.

Sex hormones are a class of hormones, affecting sexual development or reproduction. Steroid-binding globulin(SSBG), is a sex hormone, having a direct effect on androgen and estrogen.

A recent study suggested that coffee may have a direct effect in influence the production of  sex hormone estrogen and testosterone depending to gender difference.

In a 8-week parallel-arm randomized controlled trial with Healthy adults (n = 42) recruited from the Boston community, including regular coffee consumers, nonsmokers, and overweight, randomized to five 6-ounce cups of caffeinated or decaffeinated instant coffee or water per day, at 4 weeks, researchers surprisingly found that
1. Decaffeinated coffee drinking was associated with a borderline significantly increased levels of SHBG in women, but not in men.
2. At week 4, decaffeinated coffee decreased total and free testosterone and caffeinated coffee decreased only total testosterone in women.
3. Contrasted to women participants, men consumption of caffeinated coffee displayed a significantly increased total testosterone and decreased total and free estradiol hormones.
4. The study also indicated that caffeinated coffee consumption do not exert any effect on SHBG in either men or women.

But conflicted to the healthy young adult, coffee and coffee caffeine showed an elevated effect as a mediator of sex hormone-binding globulin in both androgen and estrogen in type 2 diabetic patients, particularly in women.

Additionally, according to the cross-sectional study of 2377 nondiabetic pre- and postmenopausal women from the E3N cohort study in a multivariate adjusted model, intake of more than 3 cup of coffee daily coffee and caffeine ≥265 mg/day were associated with an increased SHBG level distribution (<46.3 nmol/L), in compared to no risk association of decaffeinated coffee subgroup.

Further more, the prevention of low level of SHBG of both caffeinated coffee and caffeine, may demonstrate a potential and positive effect in reduced risk of T2DM..

More importantly, in the examine a study during a median follow-up of 10 years of 359 postmenopausal women with newly diagnosed type 2 diabetes matched with 359 control subjects by age, race, duration of follow-up, and time of blood draw, coffee and caffeine were associated to increased levels of fee and total testosterone among postmenopausal women.

The finding evidences suggested that coffee and caffeine has a extreme effect in exhibition of sex hormone estrogen and testosterone through lower level of SHBG in menopause women and prevented onset of type 2 diabetes.
Decaffeinated coffee decreased total and free testosterone through significantly increased levels of SHBG in women. And caffeinated coffee displayed a significantly increased total testosterone and decreased total and free estradiol in men.
