Drinking Two Cups Of Coffee Per Day Can Alter Sex Hormones

Written By

Researchers at the University of Utah have found that women who consume 200mg of caffeine per day can experience significant variation in the amount of estrogen their body produces.

Interestingly, whether women experience this variation and whether they experience a drop or an increase in estrogen levels depends on their ethnicity.

For example, researchers found that Asian women who consumed 200mg of caffeine per day had elevated estrogen levels; white women who consumed the same amount had lowered estrogen levels; and black women experienced almost no variation.

So what do we take from all this?

Well, for starters, if you’re an Asian woman and you want bigger boobs, maybe you should start drinking coffee. And of course, it works the other way if you’re a white woman and you want bigger boobs: drink less coffee.

I'm not saying this will affect breast size. But it might.

Why? Because estrogen is the hormone responsible for promoting the development of female secondary sex characteristics, which are non-productive physical characteristics that differentiate the males and females of a species—like breasts. So, since more estrogen could mean bigger breasts, why not enjoy some coffee?

Of course, estrogen is also the hormone that makes hips wider and thighs, um, meatier. So on second thought, maybe you ought to think twice about stimulating your bodies production of estrogen.
