As a result, the researchers came to the conclusion that caffeine helps protect the brain from typical age-related problems associated with neurodegeneration.

In particular, experiments on mice showed that caffeine blocks the A2A receptor, provoking age-related deterioration of the brain, causing memory problems and increased stress hormones.
“Adenosine A2A-receptor is a target for caffeine. In animal models caffeine blocked these receptors and eliminated the shortcomings of memory and stress, returning the rat brain to normal work”, — the report says scientists about the study.
