A new study by the Brain Institute in Krembil (Canada) concludes that coffee; In addition to providing us with energy and concentration, we protect ourselves from Alzheimer's and Parkinson’s diseases, the Science Daily reports.
They announced the first treatment against Parkinson, and this
To study which drink compounds; they reduce cognitive impairment associated with diseases; and how they do it, scientists investigated three types of coffee; light roast, dark roast and dark roast without caffeine. Initial experiments showed that both caffeine dark roast and no caffeine dark roast had the same protective effect; therefore, the researchers concluded that this advantage is not related to caffeine.
The group then identified a group of compounds known as phenylindan; in the process of roasting coffee beans.
Research has shown that phenylindans are unique elements; able to prevent the grouping of two common proteins in Alzheimer's and Parkinson proteins, beta-amyloids and tau.
Since higher calcination leads to an increase in the number of phenylindans; Dark roast coffee seems to have a stronger protective effect than light roast coffee.
“For the first time, someone is exploring how phenylalanine interacts; with proteins responsible for Alzheimer's and Parkinson's, ”said one of the co-authors of the study, Ross Mancini.
“The next step is to research how useful these compounds are; and if they have the ability to reach the bloodstream or cross the blood-brain barrier, ”he said.
The benefits of other research
But the list does not stop there. It also adds benefits reported by other studies; related to coffee consumption.
Researchers from the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, in Germany, also found that the consumption of coffee, tea, wine and chocolate; This can have a positive effect on life expectancy, but if they are taken with the addition of zinc.
This element activates hydroquinone groups; found in polyphenols or plant substances responsible for smell and taste. The result is a natural protection against oxidative stress; causes of aging and diseases such as inflammation, cancer or neurodegenerative diseases.
Ivana Ivanov-Burmazovi, responsible for the scientific team, commented on this possibility; that in the near future, coffee, wine, tea and chocolate are already available with additional zinc.
Another group of researchers, cited in the medical journal Transplantation of Nephrological Dialysis, shows that coffee consumption can reduce the risk of premature death; in people with chronic kidney disease.
The possible protective effect of caffeine may be related to the advantages it has at the vascular level, since this component contributes to the release of substances such as nitric oxide, which improve the function of the vessels.
An eleven-year study was based on data from 4 thousand 863 patients with chronic kidney disease. The results of the analysis suggested an inverse relationship between caffeine consumption and all-cause mortality among participants.
Compared to people who consumed less caffeine, patients who took higher levels reduced by almost 25% the risk of death within 60 months, a decrease even after considering other important factors such as age, sex, race, smoking and diet.
According to the team, moderate coffee consumption would be “a simple, clinically beneficial and economical option” for patients with kidney disease. However, they clarify that "this advantage must be confirmed in a randomized clinical trial."
Coffee reduces the risk of disease
Among the benefits of coffee is to check that it reduces the risk of developing diseases.
Roasted coffee contains a large amount of phenylindan, a compound capable of preventing Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases, according to a recent study conducted at the H. Krembil (Canada) and published on the ScienceDaily portal.
During the study, Canadian scientists analyzed the effects of three types of coffee: dark roasting, light roast and caffeine free, dark roasting, and concluded that both regular and low-fat coffee contain phenylindan.
This unusual compound inhibits beta-amyloids (which form senile plaques) and Tau protein, thus avoiding the deterioration in cognitive ability characteristic of Parkinson's and Alzheimer's diseases. According to researchers, dark roast coffee is richer with this substance.
"Coffee consumption appears to have some correlation with the lower risk of developing Alzheimer's and Parkinson's," said Donald Weaver, one of the people in charge of the study.
At the same time, he warned that coffee was "not a cure" for neurological diseases, with information from El Sol de San Juan.
