Best Brew For Your Brain

That jolt you get from a cup of joe may help prevent Alzheimer's. Researchers report that people age 65 and over who drank 3-4 cups of coffee a day were more likely to postpone or prevent the development of the memory-robbing disease.  Caffeinated coffee may suppress enzymes involved in the formation of neuron-damaging plaque.  It may also boost levels of cytokines, which protect against dementia, says study leader Chuanhai Cao, PhD, a neuroscientist at the University of South Florida College of Pharmacy in Tampa, who drinks 2-3 cups a day himself.
