The Nutrition Science Podcast


Aug 21, 2018

Way back on episode #129, I published a podcast episode discussing some of the health effects of coffee. 

Check out that episode here.

I don't want to spoil it for you, but I presented lots of research and some pretty convincing data about the positive health effects of caffeine and coffee. 

Today is a follow-up to that episode where I want to delve deeper into the relationship between coffee consumption and health, because it turns out that our response to coffee is largely determined by our genetics.

Today, I am going to discuss 4 genes and talk about how they impact response to caffeine consumption.

 

Here is the link to that genetic test that I mentioned on the show. 

Toolbox Genomics

I recommend going with the Empower product, which I know covers the CYP gene. 

 

Here is a link to the study that I drew this information from: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4242593/
