Brain and oolong tea


TEA TIMEūüćĶ

.

Drinking oolong tea can help protect your brain. An oolong tea is not quite a green tea and not quite a black tea. It falls in between (being partly fermented).

.

Oolong tea contains catechins, a type of flavonoid, which are known antioxidants (that is, they can help prevent free radicals from running rampant in your brain and hurting it).

.

One study showed that drinking catechins suppressed brain dysfunction‚ÄĒalthough mice, not humans, were the subjects of that study. Another study showed that catechins may work as chelators (substances that bond to a metal, in this case iron), and prevent excess metal from hurting the brain. Catechins are also known to protect the heart and blood vessels, potentially reducing the possibility of stroke.

.

According to one study, oolong tea contains polyphenols that help reduce stress. Another study showed that drinking oolong tea may help protect your brain from Alzheimer‚Äôs‚ÄĒoolong tea may prevent certain toxins, such as a plaque protein, from killing brain cells.

.

Oolong tea benefits your brain in another way‚ÄĒit generally contains more caffeine than green tea and can boost your alertness and your thinking skills.

.

On the downside, too much caffeine can cause insomnia and make heart problems worse, so drink in moderation.
