Amazing Benefits of Drinking Tea Decreases Dementia/Alzheimer’s by 50%

Thanks to its high levels of antioxidants, drinking tea is linked to lower risk of diabetes, heart disease, and cancer.

Now, a new study finds its benefits don’t end there. It found that tea drinkers cut their chances of dementia in half.

And if Alzheimer’s runs in your family, tea is even more protective. People who inherit ApoE4, the so-called “Alzheimer’s gene,” reduce their risk 86% by drinking tea regularly.

Researchers from the Yon Loo Lin School of Medicine in Singapore followed 957 adults for more than five years. All the subjects were 55 or older.

During the study, 72 of the participants developed some form of cognitive decline. Scientists found that people who drank tea at least once a day had a 50% lower risk of memory problems.

Those who drank green tea reduced their risk by 43%. People who drank black or oolong tea reduced their risk by 53%.

This is particularly important for people with a genetic risk for Alzheimer’s. Having one copy of the ApoE4 gene gives you a 25% chance of developing Alzheimer’s. People with two copies of the gene (about 2% of the population) have a nine in 10 chance.

Dr. Lei said tea’s brain-protective effects are “due to the bioactive compounds in tea leaves, such as catechins, theaflavins, thearubigins, and L-theanine.3

“These compounds exhibit anti-inflammatory and antioxidant potential and other bioactive properties that may protect the brain from vascular damage and neurodegeneration,” he said.

Tea brewed directly from the leaves has more beneficial compounds than tea made using tea bags, researchers said.

And if you are worried about Alzheimer’s, there is something else you should know…

The decades’ worth of research on one natural herb is impressive to say the least. And Big Pharma knows it… They’re trying to turn this extract into a drug. Go here to get all the details.
