Mutombo Coffee Research: Study says higher Coffee intake prevents development of Alzheimer’s disease

Mutombo Coffee Research : Higher coffee prevents Alzheimer’s disease

Lead investigator Dr Samantha Gardener said that the results showed an association between coffee and several important markers related to Alzheimer’s disease.

The findings of this research were published in the ‘Frontiers in Aging Neuroscience Journal’. As part of the Australian Imaging, Biomarkers and Lifestyle Study of Ageing, researchers from Edith Cowan University (ECU) investigated whether coffee intake affected the rate of cognitive decline of more than 200 Australians over a decade.

The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between habitual coffee intake and decline in multiple cognitive domains, over 126 months, in 227 cognitively normal individuals, accompanied by examination, in a subset of these individuals, of whether coffee intake was associated with rates of cerebral Aβ-amyloid accumulation, or brain volume atrophy.

Results showed higher coffee consumption was associated with slower cognitive decline, specifically in the executive function and attention domains. Furthermore, higher consumption of coffee was also associated with slower decline in the AIBL PACC, which has previously been shown to reliably measure the first signs of cognitive decline in at-risk cognitively normal populations
