Drinking coffee can help reduce the risk of neurodegenerative diseases, according to a new report by the Coffee Science Information Institute, according tomedia. For the study, researchers led by Dr. Elizabeth Rothenberg analyzed previous studies on the role of dietary ingredients in reducing the risk of diseases including Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and Parkinson’s disease (PD).
Their analysis shows that eating more coffee not only helps reduce the risk of developing these diseases, but also relieves symptoms.
“Studies have shown that consuming five cups of coffee and caffeine a day can prevent neurodegenerative diseases, including Parkinson’s disease,” Dr. Rosenberg said in the report. “
Although the reason for the link is unclear, the researchers hope the findings will encourage further research into coffee.
Dr Rosenberg added: “Neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease, have a profound impact on independence and well-being by continuously impairing functional capacity and significantly changing living conditions. But there is no effective treatment, so it is good to reduce the risk of developing these diseases or to alleviate symptoms. “
