As per a study, which has been published in the journal Neurology, it has been revealed that coffee is beneficial for people suffering from Parkinson's disease. It is the not the first time when it has been said that regular intake of coffee and tea is helpful in reducing the symptoms of Parkinson's disease, a neurological disease.
The research was being carried out by a group of researchers from the Research Institute of McGill University Medical Centre, Montreal. The study researchers were of the view that in order to reach at the above given result, the study researchers enrolled 61 patients.
The total number was then divided into two. One of the groups was given to take placebo and the other group was asked to take caffeine. The group, which was asked to take caffeine, was served pills that contained 100 milligrams of caffeine and were given to volunteers twice a day.
The trial continued for six weeks, and when results were compared then it was being revealed that people, who were taking caffeine pills, were better than those, who were taking placebo.
"You can buy caffeine over the counter [in a drug store]. At the dose we used in our study, it is 10 cents a pill twice a day", said researcher Ronald Postuma.
