Latest Perk for Coffee Drinkers: A Boost of Beneficial Enzymes


By Dr. Mercola A recent study has revealed even more evidence to indicate coffee has more to offer than just a boost of energy. Caffeine offers much more, actually, as it may help protect against the development of dementia. Researchers at Indiana University discovered that caffeine and 23 other compounds kick-start an enzyme known as nicotinamide mononucleotide adenylyl transferase 2, or NMNAT2, and it’s this compound that scientists say may block the effects of neurodegenerative disorders. To identify substances with the potential to produce the NMNAT2 enzyme in the brain, the scientists screened over 1,280 compounds, including existing drugs, in order to identify 24 compounds that could potentially increase the enzyme’s production. The study,1 led by Hui-Chen Lu of the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences, followed research done by Lu’s team in 2016,2 which found that the NMNAT2 enzyme not only protects neurons in the brain from stress but binds to tau proteins via the “c
