‘Coffee is rich in antioxidants, which is great for brain health,’ says nutritionist Mays Al-ali (healthymays. com). Antioxidants help cells fight damage caused by free radicals, unstable molecules that can lead to illnesses. ‘Caffeine increases alertness by blocking adenosine, a chemical messenger that makes you sleepy,’ says Mays. But if you’re a fan of decaf, research published in the Frontiers in Neuroscience shows that you will gain the same benefits drinking caffeinated.
