Coffee may slow brain aging

A study by American scientists at Rutgers University have shown that, owing to the contained in the composition of the coffee substances that it can be used to slow down brain aging. On finding experts according to a press release on the website MedicalXpress.

The authors of the new project to study the properties of coffee reported in the beans contains was eicosanol-5-hydroxytryptamin (EHT) is a substance from the category of fatty acid, a derivative of the neurotransmitter serotonin. Testing of this component coffee on mice showed that this substance can slow the process of accumulation in the brain of protein molecules, is fraught with its destruction, aging and development of neurodegenerative diseases.

But the scientists also found that so valuable for the brain ingredient of coffee can exercise its protective function only in combination with caffeine.

“This material gives a neuroprotective effect only in tandem with caffeine. Together, they can slow down, or slow down the progression of Parkinson’s disease and dementia with Lewy bodies,” said the researchers.
According to scientists, each type of coffee contain different fractions of substances that prevent aging of the brain. Therefore, it is difficult to give exact figures of coffee consumption for providing a neuroprotective effect. Perhaps the calculations it will show. A preliminary study concluded with a verdict of scientists that the coffee substance phenylindane produced when roasting the beans, have the ability to prevent associated with aging and degradation of the brain of Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s.

Earlier Magicforum wrote about the fact that scientists have made predictions about the development of the “epidemic of dementia” in the coming years.
