Regular drinking of coffee can reduce the risk of developing Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s disease later in life. One study has claimed.

While many people trust their morning goat Joe for a much needed energy boost, research by researchers at the Krembil Brain Institute in Canada highlights the positive impact that coffee consumption can have on overall health.

The researchers used light-burned, dark roasted and caffeine-free dark roasted coffee to carry out their investigation.

They could identify a group of compounds in the coffee called phenylindans that occur during the coffee brewing process.

Not only do phenylindans give the recognizable bitterness associated with coffee, but they also prevent the merging of amyloid beta and tau proteins found in the brain in patients suffering from Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.

According to Dr Ross Ma ncini, a medical chemist who participated in the experiment, these results are important for the prevention of these degenerative diseases.

“This is the first time someone examines how phenylindans interact with the proteins responsible for Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s”, he says.

“The next step would be to investigate how beneficial these compounds are and if they are able to enter the bloodstream or cross the blood-brain barrier.”

Dr. Donald Weaver, Co-Chief of the Brain Car Brain Institute, also pointed out the importance of using natural ingredients in the research.

“Mother Nature is a much better chemist than we are and Mother Nature can make these associations.

“What this study does is to take the epidemiological evidence and try to refine it and show that it is actually components of coffee that are beneficial to ward off cognitive decline. “

The researchers used the Starbucks brand 100 percent Arabica instant coffee for the study and prepared the stock solutions of coffee extracts in water.

While researchers found that dark roasted coffee appeared to provide the best protection against Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease, they said that more research should be done before coffee can be used for medical treatment.

“It’s interesting but is We suggest that coffee is a cure? Absolutely not,” said Dr. Weaver.
