Tea boosts your memory
Studies found that green tea extract and L-theanine can produce memory improvements in people suffering from mild cognitive impairments.
Tea lowers stress hormone levels
Black tea has been shown to reduce the effects of a stressful event. Participants in a study experienced a 20% drop in cortisol, a stress hormone, after drinking 4 cups of tea daily for one month.
Tea can increase energy and mental focus
Green tea contains a small amount of caffeine, which a 2008 study in Nutrition Bulletin found can improve mood, cognitive function and physical performance.
Reduces risk of Alzheimer’s
Unfortunately, scientists haven’t been able to develop a cure for Alzheimer’s, a neurodegenerative disease and the leading cause of dementia. But a healthy Paleo lifestyle, along with some coffee, can help. Multiple studies found that drinking coffee can lower your risk of developing Alzheimer’s significantly.
Reduces risk of Parkinson’s
Parkinson’s is another devastating neurodegenerative disease without a known cure. Researchers found that coffee drinkers have a significantly lower risk of developing the disease than those who don’t, but only if they drink caffeinated coffee.
