Coffee is a natural brain health ally
Coffee is one of the favorite drinks of Germany. It wakes up energy, motivates and stimulates it. What was previously known: coffee protects our brain from dementia, such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease. The stronger the degree of bean roast, the more effective the protective function, the Canadian research team reports in a recent study.
Contrary to previous assumptions, drinking coffee is increasingly beneficial. Researchers at the Canadian Toronto Canadian Institute of Cremonds Research recently discovered that coffee consumption reduces dementia such as Alzheimer's disease or Parkinson's disease. The protective effect, especially the joints, appears to be responsible for the process of firing the coffee beans. The study results were recently published in the journal Frontiers in Neuroscience.
Coffee is better than its reputation
Is the coffee healthy or harmful? In recent years, there are many studies on this issue. In the past, coffee was considered rather unhealthy as it was considered to be a dehydrating effect, which is now considered to be refuted. In fact, coffee is healthier than most people believe. It is soothing and stimulating at the same time and is intended to prevent Type II diabetes and heart disease. The latest study also suggests that coffee can protect our brain from neurodegenerative diseases. However, high levels of coffee consumption can also contribute to increased acidity and thus contribute to the development of stomach problems and reflux.
Roasting creates a protective effect
The Canadian team of scientists has shown that drinking some of the coffee may be useful for brain health. But how does a popular hot drink support cognitive function? Researchers discovered protective mechanisms other than caffeine but in compounds that were released into a coffee bean oven.
The same effect is for caffeine-free coffee
Strongly roasted caffeine coffee, as well as strong roast non-wood, as well as slightly roasted caffeine, was tested. The team concluded that strongly roasted varieties, regardless of caffeine, have a greater protective effect. In subsequent experiments, many compounds, the so-called phenylindans, crystallized as responsible for the positive effect. These compounds make up the roasting process and give the coffee a bitter taste for it.
How do roasted compounds protect our brains?
According to researchers, roasted coffee connections ensure that less toxic proteins can bind to the brain. These so-called you and beta-amyloid proteins are excreted in the brain and are considered to be causing neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease.
The steaming process is crucial
As the study group has emphasized, especially long baking times are responsible for the creation of mixtures of protective equipment. It does not matter if the coffee is decaffeinated or not. Therefore, the strongest protection mechanism on the brain is based on dark roasted varieties.
Mother Nature is the best chemist
The Canadian team is excited about the discovery, especially since the protective effect comes from a completely natural process. It does not need synthesis in the laboratory, and the drugs are so easily manufactured and widely available. "Mother nature is a much better chemist than us," explains Dr. Ross Mancini, one of the leading research scientists, released a press release on the results of the study.
Is coffee now dependent on dementia?
"The purpose of this study was to show that coffee actually contains ingredients that are useful in preventing a cognitive collapse," concludes Mancini. These processes are very interesting, but it's still too early to make coffee known as a cure, the expert says. (Vb)
