Coffee Consumption May Lower the Risk of Alzheimer’s

A new report shows that drinking 3-5 cups of coffee per day may help to protect against Alzheimer’s disease. The Institute for Scientific Information on Coffee (ISIC), a not-for-profit organization based in Europe and devoted to the study and disclosure of science related to coffee and health, published the report. Recent scientific evidence has consistently linked regular, moderate coffee consumption with a possible reduced risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease. Studies have found that regular, life-long moderate coffee consumption is associated with a reduced risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease with the body of evidence suggesting that coffee drinkers can reduce their risk of developing the disease by up to 20 percent. Finally, the report explores the compounds within coffee, which may be responsible for this protective effect, identifying caffeine and polyphenols as key candidates. Caffeine helps prevent the formation of amyloid plaques and neurofibrulary tangles in the brain — two hallmarks of Alzheimer’s disease. In short, enjoy that next cup of coffee.
