A study conducted at the University of Leeds in the UK has concluded that drinking green tea on a regular basis can not only improve your brain power, but also lower your chances of getting dementia later on in life. This is due to a chemical compound found exclusively in green tea.

Green tea polyphenols have potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties which contribute to their anticancer effects, cardiovascular benefits, and support for overall health. Of all the various chemical compounds found in green tea, epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) is by far the most studied.

EGCG has shown multifaceted actions against cancer, for example. It works in synergy with other micronutrients such as vitamin C, lysine, and proline in simultaneously controlling multiple mechanisms affecting the growth and spread of the disease. Studies conducted at the Dr. Rath Research Institute have proven that a specific micronutrient combination including EGCG is effective in preventing metastasis and the growth of new blood vessels to tumors (anti-angiogenesis).

As it is able to cross the blood-brain barrier EGCG is also beneficial for the brain and central nervous system, including against diseases such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s. The compound has additionally been shown to improve age-related cognitive decline.
