MORE IDEAS FROM How coffee affects the brain, body, and health - Neuroscience News

Caffeine has a longer-term brain effect that initially sounds frightening – it sparks “brain entropy.”  Odd as it seems, this is actually a good thing.caffeine, as a potent psychostimulant, facilities faster information processing—causing brain networks to connect with more speed and efficiency-through a process of “cerebral entropy,”even when the brain isn't actively engaged. The researchers reported they found that caffeine “increased resting brain activity irregularity or complexity, suggesting an increase of information processing capacity in the resting brain.”

Reading this with a cup of coffee,aren't you?

The main biologically active ingredients in coffee are caffeine (a stimulant) and a suite of antioxidants.The stimulant properties of caffeine mean that you can count on a cup of coffee to wake you up. In fact, coffee, or at least the caffeine it contains, is the most commonly used psychoactive drug in the world. It seems to work as a stimulant, at least in part, by blocking adenosine, which promotes sleep, from binding to its receptor.

Coffee won’t cure cancer, but it may help to prevent it. What is cancer? At its simplest, cancer is uncontrolled cell growth, which is fundamentally about regulating when genes are, or are not, actively expressed.The antioxidants in coffee may actually have a cancer-fighting effect. Remember that antioxidants fight cellular damage. One type of damage that they may help reduce is mutations to DNA, and cancer is caused by mutations that lead to the misregulation of genes.

Coffee and Nutrients

Many of the nutrients in coffee beans make their way into the finished brewed coffee.

A single cup of coffee contains:

  • Riboflavin (vitamin B2): 11% of the Reference Daily Intake (RDI).
  • Pantothenic acid (vitamin B5): 6% of the RDI.
  • Manganese and potassium: 3% of the RDI.
  • Magnesium and niacin (vitamin B3): 2% of the RDI.

Though this may not seem like a big deal, most people enjoy several cups per day — allowing these amounts to quickly add up.
