The Effect of Coffee on Longer Chromosome Telomere Length, Researchers Showed

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


By Kyle J. Norton

Epidemiological evidences suggested that lifestyle factors may affect the health and lifespan of an individual through expression of telomere length. 

And intake of coffee daily and moderately may be one of them

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

Intake of coffee may have a profound effect in strengthen the telomere length, a biomarker of living longer, a renowned study suggested.

In a cross-sectional association between coffee consumption and telomere length in 4780 women , using the data from the Nurses’ Health Study (NHS) from a prospective cohort study of female nurses began in 1976 with relative telomere length measured in peripheral blood leukocytes by the quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction, after adjusting to other risk factors, researchers found that
1. Higher total coffee use were significantly associated with longer telomeres in compared to non drinkers
2. Intake of 2 to <3 and ≥3 cups of coffee/d showed a relative ratio of 1.29 and 1.36, respectively
3. Telomere length was associated linearly to caffeine consumption from all dietary sources


The result of findings, showed a strong indication of correlation between coffee caffeine intake and the length of telomeres among female nurses.

Dr. Liu JJ, the led author said, “ ... better understand the influence of coffee consumption on telomeres, which may uncover new knowledge of how coffeeconsumption affects health and longevity”.


Other, in a study of total of 5826 adults from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) cross-sectionally, using the quantitative polymerase chain reaction method, telomere length compared to standard reference DNA, after adjusting to other risk factors, including age, gender, race, marital status, education, housing, smoking, BMI, physical activity, alcohol use,.. researchers showed that
1. Caffeine consumption was inversely related to telomere length
2. For each 100 mg of caffeine consumed, telomeres were 35.4 base pairs shorter 
3. For each 100 mg of caffeine consumed among coffee drinkers only, telomeres were 36.7 base pairs shorter 
4. Among non-coffee drinkers only, 40.0 base pairs shorter

In compared to non drinker(40.0 base pairs shorter), coffee caffeine( 36.7 base pairs shorter) and caffeine( 35.4 base pairs shorter) intake expressed a positive effect in increased genetic telomeres length.


Taking altogether, coffee (regardless caffeinated or not and numbers of cups intake per day) expressed a significant effect in increased telomeres length, the DNA implication of living longer in both gender.

      Hello Kyle,

      Please don’t take this the wrong way, but you should look up the definitions of Effect and Affect.

      Have a nice day. :smile:

      • Kyle Norton

        Thanks for inputs, due to limitation of the studies found, Affect was chosen instead of Effect

    • dcselby1

      EFFECT not Affect! jeesh!

      • Kyle Norton

        Thanks, if everyone like effect I will change them

    • Idiot Proof

      To affect, vs the effect, as effect is a noun, and affect is a verb…
