Four or more cups of coffee a day may keep prostate cancer recurrence and progression away:
Bio-active compounds in coffee may have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects
SEATTLE - Aug. 26, 2013 - Coffee consumption is associated with a lower risk of prostate cancer recurrence and progression, according to a new study to determine whether the bio-active compounds in coffee may prevent prostate cancer recurrence and delay progression of the disease.
Scientists found that men who drank four or more cups of coffee per day experienced a 59 percent reduced risk of prostate cancer recurrence and/or progression as compared to those who drank only one or fewer cups per week.
First study to assess the link between coffee and prostate cancer outcomes
The results are consistent with findings from Harvard's Health Professionals Follow-up Study, which found that men who drank six or more cups of coffee per day had a 60 percent decreased risk of metastatic/lethal prostate cancer as compared to coffee abstainers.
Phytochemicals in coffee have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects
Further research is required to understand the mechanisms underlying the results of the study, but biological activities associated with consumption of phytochemical compounds found in coffee include anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects and modulation of glucose metabolism. These naturally occurring compounds include: Caffeine, which has properties that inhibit cell growth and encourage apoptosis, or programmed cell death. Previous studies have found that caffeine consumption may reduce the risk of several cancer types, including basal-cell carcinoma, glioma (a cancer of the brain and central nervous system) and ovarian cancer.
Diterpenes cafestol and kahweol, which may inhibit cancer growth.
Chlorogenic acid, which, along with caffeic acid, can inhibit DNA methylation, a biochemical process involved in the development and progression of many cancer types.
Instant freeze dried coffee may not be effective as the actives are destroyed or driven off in this process. Sisel KAFFE does not freeze dry its coffee but micro-grinds it to ensure the actives and the rich great taste of its world class Boquete Gesha Panama Coffee bean remain intact. Once again Sisel does it right in a world where short cuts leave products sterile or less effective in both taste and performance.
