Here’s something to include as part of your marketing and advertising strategy if you’re in the tea business – apparently, drinking it is good for your brain.
A new study carried out by the National University of Singapore, the University of Essex and the University of Cambridge has found that regular tea drinkers enjoy better organised regions in the brain, associated with healthy cognitive function.
It was found that those who drank green, oolong or black tea at least four times a week for around 25 years had brain regions that were more efficiently interconnected.
Previous studies have shown that tea is beneficial to our health, with positive effects including prevention of cardiovascular disease and mood improvement – so this is another feather in the drink’s cap, so it would seem.
“We have shown in our previous studies that tea drinkers had better cognitive function as compared to non-tea drinkers.
“Our current results relating to brain network indirectly support our previous findings by showing that the positive effects of regular tea drinking are the result of improved brain organisation brought about by preventing disruption to interregional connections,” lead author of the study assistant professor Feng Lei said.
