How did we arrive at such a novel idea of proposing a move from 1 to 2 cups of coffee a day? You can read below in 2 articles from Medical News Today and see what you think of their consensus. It could be particularly helpful for people who are at risk for Alzheimer’s, but who show no symptoms yet.
This article HERE which was released in November points to the compelling evidence following 227 participants (60+ yrs old) for more than a decade. Dr. Gardener told MNT, “higher coffee intake was associated with slower accumulation of the sticky protein called beta-amyloid, which clumps together in the brains of those with Alzheimer’s disease.” Further, “Drinking higher amounts of coffee was associated with slower cognitive decline in these areas over the course of the study.”
The earlier article HERE was released in September about the studies of the blood-brain barrier in Australia which outline an understanding of how and why this disease occurs. It also resulted in substantiated beliefs around changes in dietary behaviors and certain medications which could potentially reduce blood concentration of toxic fat-protein complexes, reducing the risk for Alzheimer’s or slowing down the disease progression.
