Regular tea drinkers have better organized brain regions—something associated with healthy cognitive function—compared to non-tea drinkers, according to new research.

 

“Our results offer the first evidence of positive contribution of tea drinking to brain structure, and suggest that drinking tea regularly has a protective effect against age-related decline in brain organization,” explains Feng Lei, an assistant professor in the psychological medicine department at the Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine at the National University of Singapore.

 

Past studies have demonstrated that tea intake is beneficial to human health, and the positive effects include mood improvement and cardiovascular disease prevention. In fact, results of a 2017 longitudinal study that Feng led showed that daily consumption of tea can reduce the risk of cognitive decline in older persons by 50%.

 

Following this discovery, Feng and his team further explored the direct effect of tea on brain networks.

As far as I know tea does not grow in the UK it’s imported then they put their Twinnings name on it 🙄

Pretty soon, you won’t have tea sent over just like all the other foods coming from Europe..You will only have veggies that grow in the dark ( because of lack of proper sun in the UK ) Such as mushrooms, potatoes, carrots etc..

Do they mean proper tea like in China/Japan etc, or the stuff some people add to milk and sugar

(1) Green tea might obviously have different physiological effects from strong black tea with milk & sugar.

 

(2) There may also be a cultural/social aspect eg tea drinkers might on average have lower alcohol intake ...
