Green coffee bean may improve cognition and memory

How quickly the brain processes information slows with age, which can affect other cognitive functions.

In this study, 38 healthy adults took a placebo or 300 mg of chlorogenic acid from green coffee bean per day. After 16 weeks, participants in the green coffee bean group were able to activate physical movements more quickly, and had better attention and memory, compared to placebo.

Doctors also found higher levels of two proteins, apolipoprotein A1 and transthyretin, whose decline signals the early stages of impaired cognition.

The findings support a previous six-month pilot where green coffee bean improved cognitive function, especially in the prefrontal cortex, the area of the frontal brain lobe involved in planning complex tasks, expressing personality, making decisions, and interacting socially.
