Daily Caffeine Protects Brain

Can coffee neutralize cholesterol?We know the benefits of coffee and according to Dr Jonathan Geiger of University of North Dakota, “Caffeine is a safe and readily available drug and its ability to stabilize the blood brain barrier means it could have an important part to play in therapies against neurological disorders.”

Coffee may cut the risk of dementia by blocking the damage cholesterol can inflict on the body, research suggests.

A vital barrier between the brain and the main blood supply of rabbits fed a fat-rich diet was protected in those given a caffeine supplement.

UK experts said it was the “best evidence yet” of coffee’s benefits.

The drink has already been linked to a lower risk of Alzheimer’s Disease, and a study by a US team for the Journal of Neuroinflammation may explain why.

The spokesman for the Alzheimer’s Society said, “This is the best evidence yet that caffeine equivalent to one cup of coffee a day can help protect the brain against cholesterol.

“In addition to its effect on the vascular system, elevated cholesterol levels also cause problems with the blood brain barrier.”

One cup of coffee a day is all we need.

Study Shows Caffeine Consumption Raises Miscarriage Rate

Bad news for coffee addicts, especially for the pregnant women, the latest study shows women who drank two or more cups of coffee daily during pregnancy had double the rate of miscarriages.

Expectant mothers have been confused for years about whether drinking that morning cup of joe could do harm to their unborn child.

Some previous studies have shown that consuming caffeine during pregnancy increases a woman’s risk for miscarriage, while others have found that drinking just a couple cups of coffee a day doesn’t pose much of a threat.

The latest research to examine the risk of caffeine consumption during pregnancy reveals that women who said they drank more than two cups of coffee per day had nearly double the risk of miscarriage compared with women who consumed no caffeine.

“I am not at all surprised by this study,” said Dr. Sherman Silber, director of the Infertility Center at St. Lukes Hospital in St. Louis. “Coffee is toxic stuff.”
