For many years it has been believed that coffee has certain health benefits. During the last year it was found that drinking three glasses of things was good for your heart. And now, scientists say it is also good for their brain, The Sun reports.A new study by experts at the Krembil Research Institute in Toronto, Canada found that his joe's glass can help protect both the disease of Alzheimer's and Parkinson's. "Coffee consumption seems to have some correlation with the diminished risk of developing Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease" Dr. Donald Weaver, co-director of the Krembil Brain Institute, said.

Curiously, however, it's not caffeine to thank. Scientists have found that other cafes with caffeine and decaffeinated have similar beneficial properties. The team investigated three types of coffee: light roasted, dark roasted and decaffeinated black roasted. "The dark-roasted caffeinated and decaffeinated roast had identical powers in our initial experimental tests," said Dr. Ross Mancini, a member of the research team, said: "Then we noticed that its protective effect could not be due to caffeine." half_camera Stopping coffee may result in reduced risk of dementia. Mancini identified then a group of compounds known as phenylindanes, which are a product of the roasting process. They have been found to inhibit the two protein fragments that are common in Alzheimer's and Parkinson's. "It is the first time someone investigates how phenylindanes interact with the proteins that are responsible for Alzheimer's and Parkinson's," Dr. Mancini explained. "The next step would be to investigate how these compounds are beneficial and if they have the ability to enter the bloodstream or cross the blood-brain barrier. " The best, according to scientists, was that these are naturally occurring chemicals. "Mother nature is a much better chemical than we are and mother nature can do these compounds. If you have a complicated compound, it is better to grow it in a crop, harvest the crop, crunch the crop and extract it from trying to do it," said Dr. Weaver. But before a discussion about alternative treatments is published, more research needs to be done.Der Weaver concluded that the study seemed to show that certain compounds in coffee may be useful to ward off cognitive impairment. "It's interesting, but we're suggesting that coffee is a cure? Absolutely not." This article originally appeared on The Sun and was published here again with permission.
