Do you love your morning cup of coffee? Besides waking you up in the morning, it could also be a potential cure for Alzheimer's disease, revealed a new study. Alzheimer's disease is a progressive form of dementia characterized by formation of beta amyloid plaques in the brain. Researchers have now identified the potential opportunities for using caffeine to reduce beta amyloid levels as a means of preventing, treating, and slowing the progression of Alzheimer's disease.

Patricia A. Broderick, PhD, editor-in-chief of the journal featuring the article, said, "To say that strategizing medicines to treat Alzheimer's disorders is important is an understatement. Moreover, to say that caffeine is just an ordinary staple in our lives, whether caffeine is part of coffee or a chocolate bar, is also an understatement. Thus, what Dr. Abhishek Mohan, BS, Old Dominion University (Norfolk, VA), has published herein is elegant in its simplicity; his work is critically on target."
