Coffee is Neuroprotective!

Coffee has been shown to be neuroprotective in multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, three of the most common neurodegenerative diseases. Most studies on the beneficial effects of coffee focus primarily on caffeine, however, coffee also contains many additional molecules with neuroprotective properties. Caffeine benefits the brain’s ability to change and adapt to new information (synaptic plasticity), improves memory and reduces mood issues triggered by chronic stress. From human and animal studies, the neuroprotective effects of caffeine seem to be related to protecting the blood-brain barrier, controlling the immune cells of the central nervous system, and reducing inflammation, excitotoxicity, and cell death. For more information on neuroprotective foods, schedule an appointment to see Dr. Bates, the IMSMP's naturopathic doctor.
