However, research does not confirm coffee as an antidote to Alzheimer's disease.
HARIANACEH.co.id, For some people who drink coffee, they are limited to being positioned as a hobby and favorite menu. However, the latest research at least reveals the knowledge about the benefits of coffee.
Reporting from metro.co.uk, if you regularly drink a cup of coffee, you can get more benefits than just caffeinated drinks. According to a recent study, coffee can help reduce Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease.
"Eating coffee seems to have a certain correlation with a reduced risk of developing Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease. But we want to explore why and which compounds are involved and how they can affect cognitive decline in relation to age," said co-director of the Institute for brain in Kremlin in Canada dr. Donald Veaver, who led the studio.
The research team used three types of bean candy, which is light baking, dark baking and dark decafeinated baking.
They identified a group of compounds known as "phenylindanes", which were formed as a result of the process of frying for coffee beans.
Phenylindanes are capable of inhibiting, or more precisely, inhibiting, inhaling two protein fragments (beta amyloid and tau) that are common in Alzheimer's and Parkinson's.
"This is the first time that someone has investigated how phenylindane blends with the proteins responsible for Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease," said Dr. Ross Mancini, a medical chemist who was also involved in the study.
He explained that the next step is to investigate how useful and whether these compounds have the ability to enter the bloodstream or pass through the blood-brain barrier.
However, he acknowledged that more research is needed before benefits can be transferred to therapeutic options.
"What this research does is an epidemiological record and try to correct it and show that there are ingredients in coffee that are useful for suppressing cognitive decline. This is interesting, but do we suggest that coffee is a cure? Of course not," he said.
