Thinking of cutting coffee from your diet? Given new information about the effect of one of its compounds on cognitive function—you might reconsider.

Your morning cup of coffee may be giving you more than just an energy boost. According to new research, trigonelline, a compound found in coffee and certain vegetables, can improve cognitive decline, spatial learning, and memory.

The study, conducted by the University of Tsukuba in Japan and published in GeroScience, sought to discover natural compounds that could improve age-related cognitive decline.

Researchers found that trigonelline significantly improved spatial learning and memory in aged mice. It was also found to support multiple pathways within the nervous system, decrease inflammation within the brain, and increase neurotransmitter levels.
