Red Coffee Bean & BDNF
Cognitive Function ongoing research – CoffeeBerry® Whole Coffee Fruit Concentrate has been shown to significantly stimulate BDNF (brain-derived neurotrophic factor), a protein responsible for the development, differentiation, and protection of neurons in the central and peripheral nervous system and strongly implicated in cognitive and mental health.
Brain-derived Neurotrophic Factor is a member of the neurotrophin family of growth factors, along with nerve growth factor. The reported role of BDNF in learning and memory as well as various positive effects of BDNF on chemical and structural features in the brain. It helps regulates the development and differentiation of new neurons and promotes neuron survival. BDNF influences mood and depression, sleep control and modulates appetite. Blood BDNF declines during aging and decreased levels may be associated with depression.
A single dose of WCFC nearly doubles the amount of BDNF in the blood after 60 minutes with sustained effects for at least two hours after treatment. This effect was not seen with freshly brewed coffee over the same time.
