Ingredient interactions in coffee may promote cell growth in the brainPrevious research has indicated that drinking coffee may help sustain healthy brain function in humans. While some of these investigators cited caffeine as the ingredient that provided these benefits, the stimulant may not act on its own, according to a recent study published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease.

The current research, which involved mice with impaired memory, showed that drinking other caffeinated beverages did not promote healthy brain function, although consuming coffee did.

Therefore, the investigators hypothesized that there is a so-called “mystery ingredient” in coffee that interacts with caffeine to provide these benefits – one of which is promoting the growth of brain cells called granulocyte colony stimulating factors (GCSF).

“The exact way that this occurs is not understood. There is a synergistic interaction between caffeine and some mystery component of coffee that provides this beneficial increase in blood GCSF levels,” said lead researcher Chuanhai Cao.

The scientists said that they will continue to try to identify the mystery ingredient so that it can be used to enrich other beverages and promote brain cell growth for healthy cognitive function.
