Not only does the coffee cup everyday smell, it can also help protect the brain from disease. Researchers at the Canadian Krembil Research Institute in Toronto recently found that the use of coffee reduces the likelihood of developing dementia such as Alzheimer's or Parkinson's. The latest study goes one step further: it has specially roasted dark coffee to prevent brain brain diseases such as Parkinson's and Alzheimer's. That is the result of the Canadian study.
The results of the study were published in the magazine "Frontiers in Nuroscience".
The main researchers focused on a specific group of ingredients of the name phenylindanes produced as a result of the coffee beans roasting process.
Drinking specific coffee is good for brain health. To be able to use coffee as a therapeutic agent, much more research is needed. But how does the hot hot drink support the cognitive function? However, this does not happen due to the caffeine included, but for substances released when roasting the coffee beans.
Caffeine coffee has been dried after heavy drilling, as well as deafened with roasted as well as caffeine coffee that has roasted. Different types of roasted discard, regardless of caffeine content, are a stronger protective effect on the brain.
Further tests showed that phenylindancies known are responsible for the protective effect.
How do roasted compounds protect our brains?
They are told that they prevent the production of Alzheimer's and Parkinson's proteins (beta-amyloid and tau).
According to the researchers, roasted compounds in coffee ensure that less poisonous proteins can bind the brain. This does not require any laboratory synthesis and makes the drug easy to produce and widely available. "Mother Nature is a much better pharmacist than us," explains Dr. Ross Mancini, one of the leading scientists and the study, in a press release on the results of the study.
Is coffee now a cure for dementia?
The fact that coffee is moderated and healthy has been known for some time. These processes are very interesting, but it's still too early to declare coffee as a cure, warning the expert.
