Recent Research Shows that Caffeine May Play a Role in Inhibiting Inflammation

According to reports, a new study shows that caffeine may be able to play a role in inhibiting age-related inflammation. Although this is a related study, it has carried out an in-depth study on how caffeine affects the human immune system. The study also explains why coffee can help drinkers prevent diseases such as type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and even dementia.
So far, there has been a lot of scientific researches on caffeine, coffee, and health, some of which believe that coffee, especially hot coffee, will increase the risk of certain cancers. However, the current study is one of the few scientific studies focusing on the effect of caffeine on the human immune system.
"It's surprising that many people who drink - actually like to drink (coffee) - may have had direct benefits," said Mark Davis, a Stanford professor and lead author of the study. Although he and his colleagues have yet to prove that caffeine can lead to a healthier body, they have raised the possibility.
"We showed a correlation between caffeine consumption and longevity. And we are more rigorous in our laboratory tests, which explains the possibility of this phenomenon very reasonably. " It is understood that the study was initially aimed at aging.
Researchers from Stanford University and Bordeaux University conducted a long-term study on the genes of 114 volunteers. Instead of looking at the genetic code itself, the researchers looked at the amount of protein that volunteers produced using specific genes.
As a result, they found that people aged 60 to 89 were more likely to produce an immune molecule in inflammatory bodies. This kind of immune protein can activate IL-1B in the immune system, which plays a very important role in resisting infection.
Of these, 12 produced more inflammatory molecules, while 11 produced less. The results showed that the group with fewer inflammatory molecules was healthier.
In this process, caffeine plays a role. We know that it can inhibit the adenosine effect in the brain. Davis et al. Speculated that this effect also occurs in immune cells, which can reduce the production of inflammatory molecules. The questionnaire data showed that the group with less inflammatory molecules preferred to drink coffee, tea, and other caffeinated drinks than the group with more inflammatory molecules.
The researchers studied adenosine and another molecule that causes inflammatory bodies and eventually found that caffeine users produce lower levels of inflammatory molecules. At present, however, they are unable to explain this phenomenon fully. Relevant research reports have been published in nature medicine.
However, caffeinated drinks such as coffee can suppress parasympathetic nerves and reduce sexual desire. Coffee itself contains calories, and fatty acids, excessive intake of coffee can cause fatty liver. Studies have shown that most male workers drink coffee, which reduces sperm motility and leads to infertility.
And for the patients with chronic prostatitis who are taking Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill, it is also very not recommended to drink coffee, because it will affect the drug efficacy and may make the prostate and bladder neck repeatedly congested, and aggravating the local pain and discomfort.
