Does coffee ensure benefits?
These days, you’d be hard pressed to find a work or home environment without a coffee machine or the basic makings for an aromatic hot cup of perk. Forget the caffeine-free coffee option! Of late, caffeine – that all-time ‘bad rap’ ingredient - is being given a prime thumb’s up by the health professionals!
Based on recent studies, scientists have determined that aside from other benefits, caffeine does in fact offer numerous cognitive gains. Merging into these findings is the rather exciting new research suggesting that a measure of caffeine ingested after learning may actually boost your long-term memory.
To arrive at this realization, Dr. Daniel Borota of the Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, together with his team of investigators, evaluated the effects of caffeine-consumption on 160 people between the ages of 18 and 30.
Participants in the study were asked to identify different objects by labeling them as ‘indoor’ or ‘outdoor’ items. Shortly afterwards, some were given 200 mg of caffeine in the form of a pill, while others were given a simple placebo tablet.
The next day, all participants were shown the same pictures, along with new ones, and asked to identify them in categories of ‘new’, ‘old, or ‘similar to previous pictures'. Although both groups were able to accurately distinguish between the old pictures and the new ones, those who had ingested the genuine caffeine pills were better at identifying the pictures that were similar.
Lest you now conclude that coffee lovers have an unlimited gulp-it-down go-ahead, take note of the alternate study suggesting that caffeine also acts as a stimulant, capable of disrupting sleep patterns even hours after consumption, and another report indicating that the caffeine found in the popular energy drinks have the dangerous potential of altering heart function.
Coffee, good for you? Yes - but as with everything else - in moderation!
