Coffee - oestrogen

Café au lady

This story might make you macho types pause with your cup of morning coffee at your lips. A researcher looking at how oestrogen protects against colon cancer has found a substance called trigonelline (“trig”) in coffee that exerts similar effects to oestrogen on human cells. Trig is a phytoestrogen (phyto = plant). It exists in the two major species of coffee used worldwide. There is about 50mg of trig in 5g of instant coffee. It is too early to know whether coffee has an oestrogenic effect in your body since coffee has many other constituents that will impact trig’s actions. In some illnesses a dose of phytoestrogen could be good; in others, not so good. The researcher says there should be no concerns about drinking coffee at this point. However guys, you might want to order that “java” with a twist of lemon and a fat-free-gluten-free biscotti in future.Meanwhile if you visit Meijer Ad that contains mostly likewise discounts with Winn Dixie Ad you surely have a range like ALDI Ad.
