Coffee ‘Cuts Risk Of Dementia’

November 28, 2014

  • Research shows three to five cups a day reduces chance of developing Alzheimer’s
  • Coffee is the world’s most popular drink – two billion cups consumed everyday

For most of us a cup of coffee prepares us for the day ahead. New research has indicated that the aromatic coffee can have additional health benefits. The study suggests that coffee could also have a positive effect against dementia. Those involved in the study found that drinking between three and five cups of coffee a day, can reduce the chance of developing dementia by as much as 20 per cent.

Dr Iva Holmerova, Alzheimer Europe vice chairman commented, “Cognitive decline is a feature of ageing, and although some changes can be expected in all of us, there is some evidence that diet and lifestyle may be related to cognition.” Worldwide there are approximately 115.4million reported cases of dementia, with this figure set to triple by the middle of the century. It is hoped that findings of the research help to limit this risk. Whilst this is positive news on reducing the nations chances of developing the disease, further research is required to ensure that the positive effects of coffee are correct, as no clinical trials have been implemented.
