Coffee Could Be the Magic Potion That Prevents Memory Loss

Listen up ladies: a recent study shows that coffee could help lower the odds of getting dementia. So one of life’s greatest pleasures is actually helping your health! You’re going to drink it anyway, so it’s nice to know it’s good for you, too.

The 10-year study looked at 6,467 women aged 65 and older and found that the ones who drank more than 261 milligrams of caffeine a day had a 36% lower risk for being diagnosed with “probable dementia” than the women who drank less than 64 milligrams a day. So how much coffee is that? It’s about two to three eight-ounce cups a day, five to six eight-ounce cups of black tea, or seven to eight 12-ounce cans of cola.

“The mounting evidence of caffeine consumption as a potentially protective factor against cognitive impairment is exciting given that caffeine is also an easily modifiable dietary factor with very few contraindications,” the study’s lead author Ira Driscoll says in a statement.

Researchers say they “can’t make a direct link between higher caffeine consumption and lower incidence of cognitive impairment and dementia” but it does make us feel better about pouring another cup of java while more research is done.
