(ReliableNews.org) – You are in good company if you like to start your day with at least one cup of Joe. Statistics show 60% of American adults drink coffee. Nearly half of Americans aged 18 to 24 regularly drink the brew, and 68% of individuals 60 and older drink it regularly, with older Americans saying they drink about three times as many cups a day as their younger counterparts. In addition, recent studies linked drinking coffee to better brain function.
The National Institutes of Health research portal PubMed recently published complimentary research studies by the peer-reviewed Journal of Nutritional Health and Aging and the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease.
Both reports indicated certain compounds found in coffee protect against aging dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, as does an additional study detailed in the video below:
Dr. Donald Weaver, the co-director of the Krembil Brain Institute, recently told reporters the consumption of coffee “does seem to have some correlation to a decreased risk” of developing Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s. He said researchers are currently exploring exactly which chemical compounds reduce risks and how they might “impact age-related cognitive decline.”
Scientists may not know precisely why coffee helps protect individuals; but, research studies confirm it does.
