Here's another reason to drink coffee!
Roger Greenway, ENN
Published October 9, 2012 03:37 PM

As dedicated coffee drinker, I don't really need more reasons to drink more of the heavenly drink! There are some negatives for some, like difficulty getting to sleep after drinking regular coffee, but more studies seem to show benefits from coffee, both from regular, and also from decaffe. A recent study by the University of Illinois now shows that caffeine may block inflammation linked to mild cognitive impairment

"We have discovered a novel signal that activates the brain-based inflammation associated with neurodegenerative diseases, and caffeine appears to block its activity. This discovery may eventually lead to drugs that could reverse or inhibit mild cognitive impairment," said Gregory Freund, a professor in the U of I's College of Medicine and a member of the U of I's Division of Nutritional Sciences.

Freund's team examined the effects of caffeine on memory formation in two groups of mice—one group given caffeine, the other receiving none. The two groups were then exposed to hypoxia, simulating what happens in the brain during an interruption of breathing or blood flow, and then allowed to recover.

The caffeine-treated mice recovered their ability to form a new memory 33 percent faster than the non-caffeine-treated mice. In fact, caffeine had the same anti-inflammatory effect as blocking IL-1 signaling. IL-1 is a critical player in the inflammation associated with many neurodegenerative diseases, he said.

"It's not surprising that the insult to the brain that the mice experienced would cause learning memory to be impaired. But how does that occur?" he wondered.

The scientists noted that the hypoxic episode triggered the release of adenosine by brain cells.

"Your cells are little powerhouses, and they run on a fuel called ATP that's made up of molecules of adenosine. When there's damage to a cell, adenosine is released," he said.

Just as gasoline leaking out of a tank poses a danger to everything around it, adenosine leaking out of a cell poses a danger to its environment, he noted.

Based on up-to-date scientific data the Deutsches Grünes Kreuz advised in 2009: "Drinking two, three, four or even more cups of coffe a day has positive effects on numerous internal organs and body functions. There even seems to be a protective or preventative effect in some diseases. In in most cases, there is no reason to stop drinking coffee for medical considerations. However, in individual cases it's advisable to consult your doctor, especially during pregnancy."

What the article fails to mention (even though it's a really good article) is that coffee is also good to help keep you regular. It acts as a natural stool softener and is better to take than most medication out there and is much easier not only on your digestive system, but also your body in general.

Couple in the above benefits from the article and you have a real winner :)

Wowsers... That is a lot of benefits!

Yes, GOOD coffee is not only good for you, it is good for the soul. However, when someone gets on my case about my third cup of the day, I can just refer them to those 37 reasons ;)

Thanks for sharing :)

What a weird article...

"Coffee contains Known Carcinogens...."

Then like a paragraph down:

"Coffee fights cancer..."

So which is it? You can't have it both ways? Interesting article, but not sure what point it was actually trying to drive at.

God bless those little coffee drinking mice in IL! LOL

A wonderfully brilliant DR that I know had a forum discussion on the new studies that have been done and he has changed his position and now encourages patients to drink coffee.  

Here is a link to listen to the discussion - you have to sign up but it is worth it.  He has other good health info there too!
