…enjoying another cup of great news this morning that caffeine helps make our brains healthier and more resilient. Course it doesn’t say it will make our brain smarter but I’ll drink to the health and resilient part. Apparently there is a class of chemicals found in coffee, tea, and dark chocolate that help protect neurons from dysfunction and death and help reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease an also the risk of brain cancer. So how much caffeine do you need to consume. About six to eight, eight ounce cups per day which I accomplish by 10 am but you should consume before 2 pm so you don’t disrupt your sleep pattern. Now if your not much into coffee or tea? Then replace a cup or two with an ounce of dark chocolate. You know what else I like are those chocolate covered coffee beans, wonder if they work too? Hey, if coffee can help to remind me to take my bank card out of the ATM when I’m done instead of driving away then pour me another.
