Proof That Coffee Is The Gift That Keeps On Giving: It May Protect Your Brain
Coffee and you... probably the only relationship that has never let you down!????Not only does it add a little pep to your step it apparently protects your brain too!????And what I mean by that is much more than keeping you sane during the early hours of the morning, what I mean is it may be possibly reducing the risk of developing Alzheimer and Parkinson.????The research team from Krembil Brain Institute evaluated several compounds in coffee, including our precious caffeine, that are released in the roasting process.????The study tested three types of coffee: caffeinated light roast and dark roast and decaffeinated dark roast.????And they found a group of compounds known as phenylindanes are able to inhibit proteins linked to the development of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.????Roasting the coffee increased the amount of the compound.
And darker roast coffees seemingly offers more protection.????Forbes reports that because this was just a lab study done outside the body, more research needs to be made to see if the same results can be obtained once the coffee is ingested.????And even though researchers said the results don’t mean coffee is a cure for Parkinson or Alzheimer, at least not yet, it’s definitely a good excuse to squeeze in another cup o joe during the day!??
