DRINKS

Coffee

Coffee’s brain benefits extend beyond its caffeine content.

Coffee beans contain a high concentration of phenylindanes which inhibit the amalgamation of tau and beta-amyloid. These are toxic proteins, of which the excessive buildup in the brain is a key factor in neurodegenerative conditions such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease.

Opt for dark roast coffee beans for the greatest phenylindanes hit.
