According to a research done at the Canadian Research Institute, your morning cup of coffee can protect you from the development of Alzheimer's and Parkinson's. Scientists suggest that there could be more than a morning pain of welfare rather than an increase in energy and attention. Coffee consumption seems to have some correlation with the reduced risk of developing Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease. Scientists wanted to find out which compounds are included and how they can affect cognitive decline in age related age. The team decided to explore three different types of coffee skylights, dark roasted and dark brown roasted leeks.
According to the researchers, caffeinated and non-caffeinated dark roasted pecans had the same strength in initial experimental tests. So scientists watched in time that their protective effect could not be due to caffeine. They then identified a group of compounds called phenylindans that emerged as a result of the roasting process for coffee beans. Phenylindans are unique in that they are the only compound studied in a study that prevents – or rather – inhibition of both beta amyloid and tau, the two protein fragments common in Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease.
