Evidence-Based Benefits of Green Tea


Contains healthy bioactive compounds


Green tea is more than just a hydrating beverage.


The green tea plant contains a range of healthy compounds that make it into the final drink (1Trusted Source).


Tea is rich in polyphenols, which are natural compounds that have health benefits, such as reducing inflammation and helping to fight cancer.


May improve brain function


Green tea does more than just keep you alert, it may also help boost brain function.


The key active ingredient is caffeine, which is a known stimulant.


It doesn’t contain as much as coffee, but enough to produce a response without causing the jittery effects associated with taking in too much caffeine.


May protect the brain from aging


Not only can green tea improve brain function in the short term, it may also protect your brain as you age.


Alzheimer’s disease is a common neurodegenerative disease and the most common cause of dementia in older adults.


Parkinson’s disease is another common neurodegenerative disease and involves the death of dopamine-producing neurons in the brain.
