A recent University of South Florida study has shown that coffee may help protect against Alzheimer’s disease…as long as it’s the caffeinated kind.
The study showed that levels of the hormone Granulocyte colony stimulating factor are increased in individuals who drank caffeinated coffee. Higher levels of this hormone are linked with a more rapid production of new neurons, and the connection of existing neurons in the brain.
Are you a decaf drinker? If so, would you consider switching to get the Alzheimer’s-fighting benefits of caffeine?
