Drinking Green Tea May Protect from Alzheimers and Cancer


A new study published in Phytomedicine concludes that regular drinking of green tea may protect the brain from developing Alzheimers and play a role in protecting the body against cancer. Using technology that simulates human digestion, researchers were able to evaluate the effect of digested green tea on the body and showed the protective properties of green tea previously shown in studies were still present following digestion. They found that green tea digested by enzymes in the gut produces a chemical that is more effective against the development of Alzheimers than the undigested form. They also found that the digested chemicals had anti-cancer properties and significantly slowed down the growth of cancer cells used in the study.
