Tea and Dimentia

Drinking a cup of tea daily can reduce the risk of dementia, especially in those who are genetically predisposed to the debilitating disease, a new study has claimed.

Tea and Dimentia
The study involving 957 Chinese seniors aged 55 years or older found that regular consumption of tea lowers the risk of cognitive decline in the elderly by 50 per cent, while those genetically at risk of Alzheimer’s disease may experience a reduction in cognitive impairment by up to 86 per cent.

Researchers at National University of Singapore (NUS) also discovered that the neuroprotective role of tea consumption on cognitive function is not limited to a particular type of tea – so long as the tea is brewed from tea leaves, such as green, black or oolong tea.
