Coffee for your eyes

Do you intake coffee daily? It is good news that a coffee could help keep eye diseases at bay.
According from a joint study out of South Korea and United States, they conclude that powerful antioxidants found in coffee can play a role in preventing age-related eye diseases and the degeneration of eyesight.

From their research, scientists looked at the impact of chlorogenic acid or CLA, a strong antioxidant that has been shown to prevent retinal degeneration in mice. The mice has been treated with nitric oxide which creates oxidative stress and free radicals and leads to retinal degeneration.
Those that treated with CLA developed no sign of retinal damage.


The retina is a thin tissue located on the back wall of the eye that receives and organises visual information and also one of the most metabolically active tissue. Without retina, tthe tissue is particularly vulnerable to oxidative stress and prone to the production of free radicals which leads to tissue damage and loss of sight.
However, the result not confirm that drinking coffee delivers CLA directly to the retina as the future studies could lead to the development of a special brew customised for retinal support or CLA delivery via eye drops.

The study has published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry.
