Is coffee good for your memory? A Harvard brain expert shares how she maximizes its health benefits

Coffee is one of the most consumed beverages in the world. And with today’s massive amount of research on how what we consume affects our health, it’s no surprise that these ground seeds are being investigated.

The question is: To what extent is drinking coffee good for your brain?

In 2017, Boukje van Gelder and her colleagues reported on 676 elderly men they had studied over 10 years to see if coffee protected them from cognitive decline. They found that men who drank coffee had less cognitive decline than those who did not.

The greatest effect was seen in those who drank three cups of coffee a day, with those who drank more or less seeing less dramatic effects.
