咖啡緩解腦霧?Coffee Relieves Brain Fog?

 

COVID-19 染疫確診後腦袋ㄎ一ㄤ掉...."腦霧" 會讓專注力下降、反應遲鈍、焦慮.....好可怕喔!雖然平常就腦霧霧,聽說喝咖啡也是緩解腦霧不錯的方法之一。

The brain is not functioning well after the COVID-19 infection. “Brain fog” will cause decreased concentration, unresponsiveness, anxiety... It's terrible! Although I usually have brain fog, I heard that drinking coffee is also one of the good ways to relieve brain fog.

 

腦霧是新冠肺炎痊癒後,有不少人有的新冠確診後遺症,腦霧(英文 Brain Fog)是一種神經症狀,形容大腦運作出問題,如同陷入迷霧般,使思考、專注力和理解力都大幅下降,不過腦霧並不是一種疾病,而是一種症狀和現象。常見的腦霧症狀如下: 記憶力出問題;專注力下降;頭痛、頭暈;無法靜下來思考;憂鬱、焦慮;理解力下降等。

Brain fog is a sequela of COVID that many people have after recovering from COVID. Brain fog is a neurological symptom, which describes a problem with the brain's operation, like falling into a fog, which means the abilities of thinking, concentration and understanding declined. However, brain fog is not a disease, but a symptom and phenomenon. Common symptoms of brain fog are as follows: memory problems, decreased concentration, headache, dizziness, inability to be calm and think, depression, anxiety decreased understanding, etc.

 

腦霧和新冠肺炎之間的關聯性,科學家仍在討論。美國哥倫比亞大學醫學中心(Columbia University Irving Medical Center)神經學家埃爾金醫師(Dr. Mitchell Elkind)指出,目前推測,新冠肺炎病毒可能感染腦部,使腦部發炎造成各種功能失調。另一個可能性是身體為了對抗病毒而活化免疫力和釋放某些激素,這些激素能對抗病毒,但可能影響神經系統運作。

Scientists are still discussing the link between brain fog and Covid. Dr. Mitchell Elkind, a neurologist at Columbia University Irving Medical Center in the United States, pointed out that it is currently speculated that the COVID virus may infect the brain, inflaming the brain and causing various dysfunctions. Another possibility is that the body activates immunity and releases certain hormones in order to fight the virus. These hormones can fight the virus but may affect the functioning of the nervous system.

 

營養師夏子雯表示,要想緩解腦霧,除了要攝取足夠Omega-3脂肪酸、維生素B群、C、D,並保持睡眠充足、規律運動外,含咖啡因的黑咖啡或茶飲也可以協助緩解。

Nutritionist Xia Ziwen said that in order to relieve brain fog, apart from getting enough Omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin B complex, C, D, and maintaining adequate sleep and regular exercise, caffeinated black coffee or tea also helps.

喝咖啡能使注意力集中、振作精神,可讓人提神的主要原因為咖啡裡的「咖啡因(Caffeine)」,咖啡因是一種中樞神經的興奮劑,能夠提振精神和專注力。咖啡因會隨萃取率上升而提高,咖啡萃取率越高,咖啡因含量越多;影響咖啡萃取率的因素,包括水溫、磨粉粗細、浸泡時間、焙度。

Drinking coffee can make people concentrate and refresh their spirits. The "caffeine" in coffee is the main reason that make people feeling refreshed. Caffeine is a stimulant of the central nervous system, which can improve the spirit and concentration. Increasing the extraction rate will increase caffeine. Thus, the higher the coffee extraction rate, the more caffeine content. Factors that affect the coffee extraction rate include water temperature, grinding size, immersion time, and roast degree.

咖啡有豐富的抗氧化物質,例如綠原酸、多酚類抗氧化物等,有助緩解腦霧。我們身體不斷受到自由基的攻擊,抗氧化物可以有效消除自由基,咖啡包含許多酸性有機化合物,不但是咖啡酸香風味的來源,更是對健康有益的抗氧化物。

Coffee is rich in antioxidants, such as chlorogenic acid and polyphenolic antioxidants, which can help relieve brain fog. Our body is constantly attacked by free radicals. Antioxidants can effectively eliminate free radicals. Coffee contains many acidic organic compounds, which are not only the source of coffee’s acidity flavor, but also antioxidants that are beneficial to health.
