Does it feel like you’re always forgetting where you put your keys, wallet or cell phone? Do you return home from the grocery store without all your ingredients? Ramp up that memory by making green tea a regular part of your day.
Full of antioxidants, this tea powerhouse may not only improve overall cognitive function but also keep dementia at bay. Recently, researchers in Japan studied how regular consumption of green tea impacts retention.
For three months, 15 elderly patients added green tea powder to every meal while cutting out all other supplements. What did they discover? Green tea is a brain booster! Not only did the patients’ short term memory increase but the progress of deterioration slowed down. In order to reap the benefits of this study, drink 2 to 4 cups a day. Your mind will thank you for it.
