Coffee. The beverage of choice for waking up in the morning. That shot of caffeine can sometimes make or break one’s day. But if you have natural breast enhancement plans, then you might want to hold back on the coffee intake, as coffee can ruin breast tissue development.
Scientific evidence suggests that coffee can have a detrimental effect on breast growth. Perhaps another reason as to why coffee isn’t recommended for non-adults.
How Can Coffee Affect Breast Growth?
I’m a coffee person myself, but I had to reduce the consumption of my daily coffee “fix.” This was a while back when I was still beginning my studies in the natural and practical methods of breast augmentation. Unfortunately, my research showed excessive coffee consumption had a detrimental effect on my goals.
Suffice it to say, I was not exactly thrilled at this discovery. According to a related study conducted in 2008, it appears that just 3 cups of coffee a day can lead to a significant negative impact on breast tissue growth. Increasing the intake of coffee beyond these 3 cups can actually contribute to breast tissue reduction. This study was based on data from 300 women and their average coffee consumption.
The main issue with coffee that leads to delayed breast tissue growth is its effect on estrogen. As you know, estrogen is the female hormone, which has various effects on the feminine body features and functions. According to Helena Jernström, an oncologist and head researcher of the Swedish-based study at Lund University, there is a specific gene that caffeine affects.
Based on the aforementioned study, CYP1A2*1F is the gene that is highlighted by the influence of caffeine. Half of the 300 participants showed signs that their daily caffeine intake influenced the growth of their breasts due to this gene’s reactions.
Further Studies of Coffee’s Effect on Breast Growth
A 2018 study of over 4,000 women further looked into the effects of coffee on breast growth. In this latter case, it was determined that there is an association between higher caffeine consumption and breast density. In simple terms, breast density is based on how much fibrous tissue is present in the breast compared to that of fatty tissue. Generally, a denser breast means there is more fibrous tissue than fatty tissue.
As coffee stimulates certain enzymes affecting estrogen activity, this leads to various effects related to breast growth.
The good news is that it’s not all negative. Caffeine does have positive effects in avoiding breast cancer. This is because of the phytochemicals present in coffee. Phytochemicals reduce the chances of developing breast cancer. These assist the body in getting rid of free radicals. With moderate caffeine consumption, the likelihood of developing breast cancer is decreased significantly.
Do I Have to Give Up Coffee?
No, you don’t! I haven’t, even after learning these facts. Moreover, the impact on women can vary, depending on the genetic history of the person. Some would be more likely to experience the effects of breast tissue reduction than others. However, reducing your coffee consumption to healthier levels is highly recommended.
If you are used to taking coffee more than 3 times a day, then learn to keep it down to just 3. It might be difficult at first, especially for those who have been accustomed to the habit. However, aside from the potential negative effects on breast growth goals, too much coffee comes with its other health issues as well… like increased palpitation, blood pressure issues, and restlessness when trying to sleep. As with any other foods or beverages, the key to reaping the benefits is moderation.
If you still feel the need for a beverage during your usual caffeine breaks, there are alternatives. Some of these herbal teas can actually boost your breast growth. Fennel is a great herbal tea. It has the effect of increasing breast milk production, as well as dealing with heartburn and various other ailments. Another good alternative to coffee is Wild Yam tea, which has been used for decades for coping with the effects of menopause and menstruation.
You can swap these herbal beverages for your excess daily caffeine consumption. For instance, instead of 5 coffee cups per day, change it to 3 cups of coffee and 2 of herbal tea. The bottom line is you do not have to give up your enjoyment of coffee for your breast growth goals. This is especially true if you take natural supplements to help achieve your breast growth goals.
Coffee has been around for generations. And it is an unavoidable part of our lives. However, it should not lead to hampered breast growth success. You can make this work in your favor, with a little knowledge and lifestyle change (assuming you’re a heavy coffee drinker).
