She added in a report published on Well&good[dot]com stating “green tea contains a class of flavonoids called catechins. One of these catechins is epigallocatechin-three-gallate (EGCG). It protects the brain from inflammation and various diseases”.

Julia Fratantoni said, “After hearing this, you have to know the whole matter before you start making tea. You don’t just have to pay attention to the benefits of tea. You have to keep an eye on when and under what circumstances you are drinking it”.

People with mental stressed, rushing, sitting in a jam and getting annoyed, the stress of this situation will be eliminated by tea.

That’s what science says

“Certain types of tea, such as green tea, black tea, contain polyphenols, catechins and other anti-inflammatory ingredients”, said Fratantoni. And everyone wants ‘caffeine’. Tea reduces the amount of brain damage caused by age. This loss of age is called ‘oxidative stress’. That is why the ability of the body’s cells to remove toxins and wastes is reduced. And the ‘anti-oxidant’ has the opposite effect. The catechins in tea act as antioxidants”.

“Apart from anti-oxidants, there are other ingredients that protect the brain from the harmful effects of age”, she added. Such as ‘El-Thienin’ and ‘Caffeine’. ‘L-Theanine’ is an amino acid that protects the brain and enhances cognitive ability. Caffeine boosts mood, alerts the brain. And when these two elements enter the body together, their effect is greater than usual”.
