This time, the coffee study says regularly drinking a cup of Joe may actually help keep your eyes healthy.
Taking a closer look, the antioxidant found in coffee called chlorogenic acid helps prevent retinal degeneration. But hold on, this is a study after all, so this has only been shown in mice.
Mice that were treated with CLA had no retinal damage at all even after they were intentionally exposed to nitric oxide. They did that to try to speed up the degenerative process.
Now they’re looking into whether or not coffee delivers CLA right to the retina. If it does, scientists could possibly make a specific brew of coffee to help your eyes.
