咖啡香之療癒力 Healing Power of Coffee Aroma
On a holiday afternoon, lying on the sofa, the aroma of coffee is slowly lingering. Taking a sip of coffee, it’s time to relieve stress and heal. It turns out that coffee can already make people feel relaxed from the stage of smelling the aroma.
The research team of a professor of psychiatry at Kyorin University in Japan, conducted an experiment on the health of the brain by the aroma of coffee, and found that smelling the aroma of coffee will release alpha waves in the brain, which is similar to the alpha wave during rest, showing a state of relaxation. In addition, the brain areas for cognitive function and intelligence processing also become active, increasing the activity of the brain.
However, the study also pointed out that people who like or hate drinking coffee have completely different results in the alpha brain waves released in the brain after smelling coffee. People who love coffee, alpha waves will be greatly activated by coffee, but people who hate coffee will not change. It can be seen that alpha waves are only sent to people who can resonate with the aroma of coffee, which is a kind of brain response with deep personality.
咖啡中的關鍵成分，經人體吸收，會產生咖啡酸(Caffeic acid)，這和芳香植物-迷迭香所含的迷迭香酸(Rosmarinic acid)，被身體吸收後會轉化成的咖啡酸相同。迷迭香酸沒有氣味，卻能對腦部作用，安定心情。原來是吸收後轉換的咖啡酸，對大腦皮質的周邊作用，使心情平靜(*1)。一杯咖啡讓人解除疲憊感的根源，竟然與芳香療法使用的迷迭香相同，香氣的世界，確實蠻有趣的呢。
The key ingredient in coffee, when absorbed by the human body, will produce caffeic acid, which is the same as the rosmarinic acid contained in the aromatic plant – rosemary. It will be converted into caffeic acid after being absorbed by the body. Rosmarinic acid has no smell, but it can act on the brain and stabilize the mood. It turned out to be caffeic acid converted after absorption, and it acts on the periphery of the cerebral cortex and calms the mind. The source of a cup of coffee that relieves fatigue is actually the same as rosemary used in aromatherapy. The world of aroma is really interesting.
It turns out that the stress-relieving effect of coffee aroma has been confirmed by research. Every day, starting from grinding, brew a pot of fine coffee with a charming aroma for yourself. Through the pour-over brewing process, from the dry aroma, to the rising hot steam that brings out the wet aroma, and then to the various tastes you feel when you sip your coffee. It is a wonderful ritual of aroma healing from brewing to tasting.
