Coffee could keep Alzheimer’s at bay

Reading time: 1 minute

Coffee and fenugreek—the plant used in Asian cooking—can help maintain muscle mass and strength as we get older.

They contain compounds that counter sarcopenia, a condition where muscles weaken as we age.

Trigonelline, which is in coffee and fenugreek, increases levels of the co-enzyme NAD+, vital for metabolism and DNA repair, and improves activity of mitochondria, our cells’ powerhouse.

Essentially, sarcopenia, NAD+ loss and mitochondrial decline are all biological markers of ageing, and they can be reversed by increasing levels of trigonelline, say researchers from the University of Southampton.
