“May your coffee kick-in before Alzheimer’s does”
Coffee is among one of the most popular beverages in the world today. Some researchers say that coffee has potential benefits in treating some of the neurodegenerative diseases prevailing today.
The morning coffee is said to have some positive health benefits that can be correlated with the decreased risk of developing Parkinson’s or Alzheimer’s disease. The three main types of coffee available coffee- light roast, dark roast, and decaffeinated dark roast have been examined carefully by the researchers to find out that dark coffee particularly contains certain protein that has a protective effect on the body. Coffee contains caffeine that is known to increase the adrenaline levels in your body and preparing for physical exertion. It helps in keeping the mind alert and shield the body against free radicals. The latest study has demonstrated that coffee has an anti-clumping effect on the beta-amyloid and tau fragments that gets accumulated in the brain over the period of time. The deposition of these fragments later enters the body to break the blood-brain fencing and ultimately harms the brain. Dark coffee is said to have phenylindanes that act as a dual inhibitor that helps in preventing the occurrence of neurodegenerative diseases.
The darker the roast coffee the more is the number of phenylindanes that is generated and better it may act in reducing the risk of Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s than light roast.
