Another benefit to drinking coffee.

A Canadian-led study has concluded that coffee consumption┬ámay help people with Parkinson’s disease to move with greater ease.

In the study, researchers set out to see if caffeine could help overcome what’s called daytime somnolence.

That’s a symptom that affects some patients with the progressive neurological disease.

While the researchers didn’t see an appreciable wake-up effect among subjects taking caffeine, they were surprised to find that java’s main ingredient appeared to enhance patients’ mobility.

It is not clear, though, why caffeine would help improve a patient’s movements.
