(Caracas, November 10 – Europa Press). Drinking coffee at breakfast can not only increase energy and attention, but also protect Against the development of Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's diseaseAccording to a recent study by the Krembil Brain Institute in Toronto, Canada.
Assistant Director of Krembil Brain Institute. ”Coffee consumption is less associated with the risk of developing Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease,, explains Donald Weaver. But we wanted to investigate why this was, what compositions were involved, and how it affected cognitive decline in age. "
Dr. Dr. Weaver, medical chemistry and biologist Yanfei Wang. Ross applied for the help of Mancini. Investigate three different types of coffee: lightly roasted, darkly roasted and darkly roasted decaffeinated.
Or Both decaf caffeine and black caffeine had the same potential in our initial experimental tests, so we've observed that since the beginning, the protective effect has not been attributed to caffeine, “he explains.
Then, dr. Mancini described a group of compounds known as phenylindanes, which were produced as a result of the roasting of coffee beans. The phenylindoneses are unique because in this study there are studies that prevent both amyloid beta and tau grouping which are two common protein fragments in Alzheimer's and Parkinson's. "So the phenylindanes are double inhibitors. It's very interesting and we didn't expect it." Doctor Weaver agrees.
Since the coffee roast produces higher amounts of phenylene, dark roasting seems to be more protective than light roasting. . It is the first time Phenylalanine interacts with proteins responsible for Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease, M says Mancini. The next step will be to investigate to what extent these compounds are useful and to have the ability to achieve blood flow or to cross the blood-brain barrier. "
It is a great advantage that Weaver's natural component is against a synthetic product. He accepts Weaver. But, He admits that there is still a need for further research before it is turned into possible treatment options. "This study shows that there are components that are useful for taking epidemiological evidence and really preventing cognitive regression in coffee. Interesting, but do we suggest coffee is a cure? Absolutely not," he cautions.
