Coffee – natural cohesion of the health of the brain
Coffee is a favorite German drink. It strengthens energy, stimulates and stimulates. What has come before: Coffee protects our brain against dementia such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's. The more robust is the roast of beans, the more effective defensive function, reporting the Canadian research team in a recent study.
Contrary to previous assumptions, the health benefits of drinking coffee are becoming increasingly apparent. 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. For the protective effect, specific compounds appear to be responsible, which arise during the coffee beans roasting process. The results of the study have recently been published in the magazine "Frontiers in Nuroscience".
Coffee is better than a reputation
Is coffee healthy or damaging? A number of studies have arisen this question in recent years. In the past, coffee was considered to be rather unhealthy because it was said that the dehydration effect considered now rejected. In fact, coffee is healthier than most people believe. It is slow and stimulating at the same time and is supposed to prevent type II diabetes and heart disease. Latest research also suggests that coffee can protect our brain from neurosurgery. However, eating high coffee can also contribute to hyperacidity and thereby promoting stomach and respiratory problems.
Roasting brings the protective effect
The Canadian science team has proven that drinking certain coffee can benefit brain health. But how does the hot hot drink support the cognitive function? The researchers found the non-caffeine safeguarding mechanisms, but in compounds released when roasting the coffee beans.
The same effect for decaffeinated coffee
Caffeine coffee has been dried after heavy drilling, as well as deafened with roasted as well as caffeine coffee that has roasted. The team found that the heavily roasted types, regardless of caffeine, had a stronger defensive effect. In further tests, many compounds, the phenylindanes called crystalline are those that are responsible for the positive effect. These compounds form during the roasting process and give the coffee its usually bitter taste.
How do roasted compounds protect our brains?
According to the researchers, roasted compounds in coffee ensure that less poisonous proteins can bind the brain. These proteins known as tau and beta-amyloid are deposited as a plaque in the brain and are considered to trigger neuro-treated diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's.
Long roasting process is essential
As the research team emphasizes, long roasting time is particularly responsible for the formation of protective roasting compounds. It does not matter if the coffee had been disinfected or not. Therefore, the most prominent effect on the brain is based on the types of dark roast.
Mother Nature is the best pharmacist
The Canadian team is excited about the discovery, especially as the protective effect comes from a completely natural process. 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 purpose of this study was to show that coffee components are really useful for declining cognitive decline," ends Mancini. These processes are very interesting, but it's still too early to declare coffee as a cure, warning the expert. (Vb)
