A new study shows that coffee does in fact lead to more alert and beneficial brain waves and in some cases, it can also increase the ability to learn and focus, as well as process and store memories.
Phew! This isn’t one of those coffee-is-bad-for-you studies!
The study out of Portugal’s University of Minho School of Medicine monitored brain images of coffee drinkers vs non-coffee drinkers to measure blood flow and neural activity. In addition to these positive outcomes, they also found that coffee can be linked to a higher degree of stress. So indulge in your morning brew but gently friend. You don’t want to end up like Kramer.
