Drinking coffee may help relieve symptoms of Parkinson's disease.

Patients who were given a dosage of caffeine were able to control their movements better and had less difficulty moving.

That's compared to patients who were given a placebo.

Parkinson's disease attacks the central nervous system causing mobility problems, shaking and sleepiness.

The study was published in the journal "Neurology."
