Green Tea Improves Memory And Spacial Awareness

Although previous studies have shown that green tea consumption aids in weight loss, can lower cholesterol levels and is full of anti-oxidants, a new report reveals that it may also benefit memory and spacial awareness as well.

"Green tea is a popular beverage across the world. There has been plenty of scientific attention on its use in helping prevent cardiovascular diseases, but now there is emerging evidence that its chemical properties may impact cellular mechanisms in the brain."

During their study, the experts concentrated on EGCG (epigallocatechin-3 gallate), an organic chemical and main ingredient in green tea. Although EGCG is an anti-oxidant, the researchers say that it may also protect against degenerative diseases which come with age.

"We proposed that EGCG can improve cognitive function by impacting the generation of neuron cells, a process known as neurogenesis. We focused our research on the hippocampus, the part of the brain which processes information from short-term to long-term memory."

The researchers discovered that ECGC helps to promote the making of neural progenitor cells, which are similar to stem cells which can turn into many different kinds of cells.

"We have shown that organic chemical EGCG acts directly to increase the production of neural progenitor cells, both in glass tests and in mice. This helps us to understand the potential for EGCG, and green tea which contains it, to help combat degenerative diseases and memory loss."

Green tea has also been known to reduce the risk of esophageal cancer, delay the onset of Alzheimer's, improve depression symptoms by relaxing and calming the drinker, make skin look younger by reducing wrinkles, lower the risk of high blood pressure, and benefit diabetics because it slows the rise of blood sugar after eating.
