Mexico City, November 16 (TICbeat / SinEmbargo) .- Review of Benefits of coffee approved by science, on other occasions we have submitted a study about their ability to reduce liver damage caused by alcohol, research into its ability to prolong life or liver protection. On the other hand, it should be stressed earlier that consumption of the surplus has negative consequences in our organism, such as the appearance of sores, heartburn or migraine and hypertension.
Now a new study was published in the magazine last month Boundaries in neuroscience suggests a correlation between the increase in coffee consumption and better brain capacity, which are key for combating some serious brain and neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer's or Parkinson's.
"The coffee consumption seems to have a correlation with a lower risk for both diseases, "said Donald Weaver, associate director of the Krembil Brain Institute at the University of Toronto and one of the authors of the study. In order to immerse themselves in this, they analyzed the responsible chemists coffee with the purpose of searching for topics that are responsible for this benefit. And surprisingly, they found that caffeine had nothing to do with it. In fact, correlation with the brain's improvement and protection against Alzheimer's or Parkinson's likewise was found in caffeine-free coffee.
The secret lies in a chemical compound called phenylindan, which is created during the roasting process and which can stop the accumulation of two toxic proteins called rope and beta-amyloid related to Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease in the brain. . How much darker is roasted coffeecontains more phenylindan.
