COFFEE MAY GIVE A MEMORY BOOST
Researchers at the University of Arizona found that memory in older people is often at its best in the morning and declines in the afternoon. When half the seniors in their study drank 12-oz (355-ml) cups of decaffeinated coffee morning and afternoon, their memory performance showed a significant decline from morning to afternoon. The group that drank regular coffee, however, maintained their morning performance levels throughout the afternoon.
