Drinking Tea Improves Brain Health, Study Suggests

Cognitive Health Cognitive Health

A recent study led by researchers from the National University of Singapore (NUS) revealed that regular tea drinkers have better organized brain regions— and this is associated with healthy cognitive function—compared to non-tea drinkers. The research team made this discovery after examining neuroimaging data of 36 older adults.

“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,” explained team leader Assistant Professor Feng Lei, who is from the Department of Psychological Medicine at the NUS Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine.

The research was carried out together with collaborators from the University of Essex and University of Cambridge, and the findings were published in scientific journal Aging on June 14, 2019.
