The health benefits from your morning cup of coffee
From boosting your metabolism to improving brain function in later life, here’s what your caffeinated pick-me-up could do for you. The latest data have emerged from the University of Verona, where researchers showed that doses of espresso could prevent a toxic protein called tau from clumping together in cells in a petri dish. This is particularly interesting because the steady accumulation of tau in the brain is a contributing factor to Alzheimer’s disease.
“It is important to remember that UK guidelines are that no more than about two and a half cups of coffee are consumed in one sitting, or five cups per day,” says Dr Ally Jaffee, NHS doctor and co-founder of Nutritank. “Daily consumption of more than seven and a half cups of coffee has been suggested to have a negative impact on heart and brain health.”
“The mechanisms through which coffee may reduce the risk of depression may be due to the antioxidant content and anti-inflammatory action, as inflammation is a key mechanism in depression,” says Alice Benskin, nutrition education lead at Nutritank.
