New research suggests that high consumption of green tea may reduce your risk of dementia. However, it is important to note that this result is based on a preliminary study consisting of just under 500 participants and the result is yet to be published in a peer-reviewed scientific journal.
This result was recently presented at Alzheimer’s Disease and Parkinson’s Disease Conference in Nice, France by researchers from the Kanazawa University Graduate School of Medical Science in Japan and written about in Dementia News.
It’s interesting stuff and while the researchers conclude that drinking green tea could be beneficial for cognitive function, more evidence is required as to how long participants had been drinking green tea throughout their lives, and how much, to fully understand the effects of green tea on brain health.
