GET SMART ON THE BRAIN-BOOSTING POWERS OF CASCARA
What’s up Good people! So, we know Cascara provides a healthy caffeine boost, but is it also good for brain health? While coffee beans may currently be a bigger seller, coffee fruit packs some serious benefits all on its own; that’s one reason why Cascara is the key component of Up to Good Energy.
Coffee fruit contains a rich combination of beneficial nutrients and is widely considered a “superfood” for its potential brain boosting power. Its main cerebral benefit is the strengthening of your brain cells by boosting the production of plasma in brain-derived neurotrophic factors (BDNF).
BDNF stimulates and controls the growth of new brain cells and is a key molecule involved in plastic changes related to learning and memory. This protein molecule supports the survival of neurons in your nervous system and can help ward off cognitive decline. It also supports the maturation and survival of existing brain cells, which is why low levels of BDNF are often associated with decreased brain function over time.
Though research into this topic is fairly new, early studies have shown that coffee fruit could be impactful in the treatment of Alzheimer’s and other types of dementia and diseases which affect BDNF production.
