Go ahead, pour yourself another cup.

Listen up, ladies: According to a new study published in The Journals of Gerontology, coffee could help women reduce their risk of developing dementia.

In a 10-year study of 6,467 women aged 65 and older, researchers at the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee found that those who drank more than 261 milligrams of caffeine (about one tall cup of Starbucks coffee) every day experienced a 36 percent lower risk of being diagnosed with "probable dementia" than those who drank less than 64 milligrams of caffeine (about one ounce of espresso) every day.

Their research was adjusted for risk factors including age, race, BMI, smoking, and alcohol consumption, among several other factors.

"The mounting evidence of caffeine consumption as a potentially protective factor against cognitive impairment is exciting, given that caffeine is also an easily modifiable dietary factor with very few contraindications," the study's lead author Ira Driscoll, PhD, said in a statement.

So even though the researchers "can't make a direct link between higher caffeine consumption and lower incidence of cognitive impairment and dementia," according to Driscoll, it certainly can't hurt to feel good about your morning cup (or two) of coffee until further studies are done.
