A drink that supports your cognitive abilities and protects you from dementia

 




Many scientific studies and research seek to provide preliminary solutions and advice, for people at risk of dementia, Alzheimer's or declining cognitive abilities.


These studies point to the importance of type of life and food in controlling the decline of these abilities, and in the presentation made at the 2022 Tea Symposium, growing evidence shows that tea can significantly reduce the risk of vascular dementia, as well as the likelihood of Alzheimer's disease.



The conclusion came from Edith Cowan University Professor of Nutrition Research Dr. Jonathan Hodgson, who offered tea and flavonides "a variety of plant-based nutrients" in relation to cognitive decline.


  • He tells Hodgson that in recent years, there has been growing evidence that the regular consumption of tea
  • At a rate of 1 to 2 cups per day, it may provide protection against these diseases
  • Data from these studies also showed that consuming moderate amounts of flavonoid compounds found in tea is associated with a lower risk of cognitive decline and dementia and especially blood vessels
  • which is the cause of memory loss in the elderly, Especially those at risk of stroke due to obesity or diabetes.


"Long-term tea and flavonides, compared to low drinks, can reduce the risk of a range of vascular health-related diseases by 10 to 20%," Hodgson says at the symposium, adding: "Only moderate and accessible amounts of tea and flavonoids are needed to maximize health benefits."


The First Time Mom's Pregnancy Cookbook author Lauren Manker speaks: "Dementia affects an estimated 5 million adults every year and can change its experience in life.


  1. Surprisingly, just sipping some teas can support cognitive health in a natural way
  2. and it seems that combining L-theanine with a low dose of caffeine, when consuming them.
  3. Manker also states that while there is no "magic solution" to dementia prevention


 some changes in diet and lifestyle can reduce the risk of developing the condition such as drinking less than a cup or two a day of real tea, "tea that comes from the same plant as Camelia sinensis unlike herbal tea."
