caffeine decreases neurogenesis
When reading Brant Cortright Book "The Neurogenesis Diet & Lifestyle"
There are two references which shows that caffein decreases neurogenesis:
Wentz, C.T., Magavi, S.S. (May-Jun 2009). "Caffeine alters proliferation of neuronal precursors in the adult hippocampus."
Neuropharmacology. 56(6-7):994-1000. don: 10.1016/j.neuropharm.2009.02.002.Epub 13 Feb 209
Han,M.E., Park,K.H.,Baek, S.Y., Kim, B. S., Kim, J.B., Kim, H.J., Oh, S. O. (18 May 2007). "Inhibitory effects of caffeine on hippocampal neurogenesis and function." Biochemical and Biophysical Research Communications. 356(4):976-80. Pub 26 Mar 2007.
He was also a guest in Dave Asprey podcast:
What do you think .. Looks like that Coffee is only a short time stimulant but has not so good longtime effects on the brain
and decrease neurogenesis.
Is there something to counter this bad effect ?
