Go Ahead and Have Your Caffeine
Bonnie and Steve: Daily consumption of drinks containing caffeine indeed assist in the fight against dementia, according to a new study from The Journals of Gerontology.

The study looked at the caffeine consumption of 6,467 older women.
Differences in when dementia or cognitive impairment were diagnosed and their caffeine intake were assessed.

Over a 10 year span, the research team found women consuming above average levels of caffeine intake (average 261mg/day) were less likely to develop incident dementia or any cognitive impairment compared to those consuming below average amounts (64mg/day).

A typical cup of black coffee contains approximately 85 mg. of caffeine.

The researchers suggest that at normal daily consumption range, which is 2-4
cups of coffee, the primary action of caffeine is that of a nonselective adenosine receptor antagonist, which has an antiinflammatory effect.

The findings are consistent with a recent a study looking into similar observations in men. Those who consumed three cups of coffee per day had the lowest cognitive decline over a 10 year period.

Caffeine is an easily adjustable dietary factor with very few side effects. Even those who cannot handle coffee can find other ways to consume caffeine. Of course, there is tea. There are even caffeinated waters. However, we vehemently dissuade you from consuming caffeinated soft and energy drinks.
