Abstract The research strategy is focused on the potential prevention and treatment of cognitive impairment by recommending the consumption of herbal-coffee beverages as early as possible in life. General methods applicable for the analysis and extraction that are suitable for the preparation of a range of herbal-coffee beverages have been found. The herb-bioactive compounds are effectively extracted simply by using a coffee machine or microwave heating. These herbal-coffee beverages may provide significant neuro-protection against dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, including the development of the first examples containing ginger, liquorice and ginseng in coffee brews. Caffeine, caffeic acid and Vitamin B1 combined with HEWL to strongly inhibit ThT fluorescence. A small study of the perception and sensory responses to the new beverages was undertaken.
