Ladies, Want to Prevent Depression Later on? Perhaps Drink Coffee?

RSS

A new study found that women who drank two to three cups of caffeinated coffee a day decreased their chance of developing depression by 15% according to a 10 year study period. This was compared to women who consumed one cup or less per day. The study also showed that the more cups you drank, the lower the risk; “women who drank four or more cups had 20% lower risk.”

The study was conducted by Dr. Alberto Ascherio, a professor of epidemiology and nutrition at Harvard School of Public Health. The reason for this lower risk is due to caffeine boosting alertness and energy. He suggests that the dependency of caffeinated coffee may have long term effects on the brain. There is no a direct link between depression and drinking coffee, but there is an association which has not been clearly found. They do know that “caffeine works by binding to receptors for brain chemicals associated with mood.”

Overall, there is no guarantee that drinking coffee will have a positive effect in the long run as everyone reacts differently to caffeine.
