Further to the article elsewhere in this blog,
I found another great article in a weekend newspaper lift-out called “Body and Soul” which makes some positive claims about drinking decaf coffee. This was an additional snippet to the above article, and was published in the July 5, 2015 edition and was also written by Dilvin Yasa.
WHAT ABOUT DECAF COFFEE?
It might not give you a buzz, but decaffeinated coffee may help keep your liver and brain happy.
A team from the National Cancer Institute in the US analyzed blood samples from 27,793 people for key markers of liver health, including four enzymes previously linked to poor liver function.
Those who reported drinking three or more cups of coffee – both caffeinated and decaffeinated – had lower levels of all four of these specific enzymes.
Meanwhile, a study on mice published in the journal “Nutritional Neuroscience” revealed the potential benefits of decaf for preventing and treating cognitive decline associated with type 2 diabetes, aging and Alzheimer’s disease.
More research is needed to find out if it has the same effect on humans.
