Print this page

The lifelong, regular and moderate intake of coffee/caffeine (the equivalent of 3-5 regular cups of caffeinated coffee) appears to have a beneficial effect on our cognitive abilities. It may preserve our cognitive potential as we age, have preventative effects on the development of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease, and limit both the risk, and the deleterious consequences, of stroke. However, further research is needed before any firm conclusions can be drawn.
