Does Coffee Protect Against DNA Damage?

A cup of paper-filtered coffee a day could reduce oxidative damage to DNA by 12 percent, according to a study.

Coffee is one of the richest sources of polyphenols in the Western diet, with one cup of the stuff providing 350 milligrams of phenolics. However, no changes in overall antioxidants status was observed among the study participants. It is possible that indirect effects are at play, such as reduced uptake of glucose.

According to NutraIngredients:

“The beverage, and its constituent ingredients, has come under increasing study with research linking it to reduced risk of diabetes, and improved liver health.”
