Drinking three cups of coffee daily could help keep Alzheimer's disease at bay, according to the results of a new study.
Research showed people with memory loss, who had high levels of caffeine in their blood did not go on to develop dementia.
Scientists at the University of South Florida and the University of Miami monitored 124 people aged between 65 and 88, testing their blood caffeine levels and their cognitive ability for two to four years.
Caffeine levels among those who developed dementia were 51 per cent lower than those who did not.
This study provides the first direct evidence that caffeine/coffee intake is associated with a reduced risk of dementia or delayed onset.
