Coffee is such a brewed drink which is extracted from roasted coffee beans, the seeds from Coffea plants, that has been processed in advance. It is known for its bitterness, acidity, and full-bodied characteristics. Rumor has it that consuming coffee can disturb someone’s memory system, either short-term memory or long-term memory. However, this assumption is not clearly proved. Even, some studies have proved the contrast. Coffee can prevent someone from suffering diseases related to the brain and neural system. So, what are the diseases that coffee can deal with? Here are the brief explanations.
The Diseases Coffee Can Prevent
In fact, coffee can prevent people from suffering Alzheimer and dementia. Alzheimer is such neurological disorder decreasing someone’s neural system ability which results in the gradual loss of memory, speech, movement, and the ability to think clearly. And, it is the common cause of dementia. Dementia itself is a medical condition that causes the memory and other mental abilities to become gradually worse and leads to confused behavior. Both diseases commonly affect older people (more than 65 years old). Unfortunately, the Alzheimer medication is not yet invented. However, one of the things that can prevent this disease is to consume coffee. Based on some studies, consuming coffee can lower the risk of Alzheimer up to 65 percent.
Besides, the caffeine contained in the coffee can also lower the risk of Parkinson, a disease of the nervous system which causes the muscles to become stiff and the body to shake, and which gradually gets worse as the person gets older. One of the most known Parkinson cases is the one affecting Muhammad Ali, the former professional boxer. Similar to Alzheimer, Parkinson medication is not yet discovered as well, so the prevention is very important. The studies showed that caffeine can lower the risk of Parkinson decreased approximately 32 to 60 percent.
