Full of antioxidants, this tea powerhouse may not only improve overall cognitive function but also keep dementia at bay. Recently, researchers in Japan studied how regular consumption of green tea impacts retention.
For three months, 15 elderly patients added green tea powder to every meal while cutting out all other supplements. What did they discover? Green tea is a brain booster!
