Green Tea and the Brain

Green tea has a vast number of recognised health benefits, and these have been identified in many clinical studies. But some people are not aware that green tea has the potential to help with many different conditions that affect the brain.

These days, brain conditions such as Alzheimer’s, dementia and Parkinson’s disease are becoming more prevalent, and it is thought that green tea can help to protect the brain. Studies suggest that the catechin compounds contained within the green tea can protect the neurons in the brain. This could potentially have the welcome effect of reducing the risk of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases.

It is also known that the caffeine and amino acid content in green tea can help with memory function, as they help to keep the senses alert, and this may also have a positive effect at keeping some of the symptoms of other brain conditions at bay.

However, it should be noted that studies are still being carried out into this and that conventional treatments should not be ignored if they are prescribed for you, but it can never hurt to keep the senses as alert as possible.
