After Drinking All That Whiskey Have A Cup Of Coffee

Arabica, Colombian, Peruvian.

After that Food Thread Booze Thread, how about a nice cup of coffee? Not only will it make you an alert drunk. It also may help your brain. Go ahead, have that 2nd pot cup.

A study led by Hui-Chen Lu identified 24 different compounds that boost an enzyme in the brain known to ward off degenerative brain diseases. The protective enzyme was discovered last year and is known as NMNAT2.

And you can find one of these 24 compounds in your kitchen, specifically, in your morning coffee.

Out of 1,280 compounds that were screened, the research team identified caffeine as one of the substances shown to increase production of NMNAT2.
