Coffee, the well known beverage and one of the most popular drinks in the world could possibly contributes to risk of mild cognitive impairment.
Nowadays, everyone’s morning is not complete without a cup of coffee. Even in some offices, it is very impossible for workers to survive in a day without coffee. Half of the world were known as coffee lover, however, studies found out that too much coffee intake increases risk of mild cognitive impairment.
Scientific research has been conducted to examine the relationship between coffee consumption and of medical conditions. Knowing that coffee is acidic and can have stimulating effect on humans because of its caffeine content. The increase of coffee intake possibly leads to MCI or better known as mild cognitive impairment, considered as early stage of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia, starting to loss person’s memory.
In a statement,Vincenzo Solfrizzi, MD, PhD, and Francesco Panza, MD, PhD,saying, “These findings from the Italian Longitudinal Study on Aging suggested that cognitively normal older individuals who never or rarely consumed coffee and those who increased their coffee consumption habits had a higher risk of developing MCI. Therefore, moderate and regular coffee consumption may have neuroprotective effects also against MCI confirming previous studies on the long-term protective effects of coffee, tea, or caffeine consumption and plasma levels of caffeine against cognitive decline and dementia,” University of Bari Aldo Moro, Bari, Italy.
Many studies conducted on the effect of coffee consumption on human health as to coffee’s relative benefit. National Institutes of Health–AARP Diet and Health Study focused on relationship between coffee drinking and mortality, found out that amount of coffee consumed correlated negatively with risk of death, and that those who drank any coffee lived longer than those who did not.
As coffee contained percentage of caffeine in coffee seeds themselves, thus, diminishes with increased roast level. Caffeine causes anxiety, especially in high doses and in those with existing anxiety disorders. A four or more cups of coffee a day experience headaches even without discontinuing their coffee consumption.
The researchers showed that both rare and higher consumption of coffee, more than 2 cups per day were associated with higher risk of the incidence of mild cognitive impairment.
Recent research suggests that a moderate coffee intake is mildly beneficial in healthy adults but may increase the risk of heart disease.IMAGE/zeenews.india.com
