benefits of green tea

  1. Brain protecting benefits of green tea

    Boost your brain, one sip at a time.

    A drink that can enhance your brain, protect your memory and even make you smarter?

    I know… that sounds like science fiction.

    But plain old green tea can actually do just that, with new research showing how the health benefits of green tea boost the "effective connectivity" of your brain.

    This is your internal wiring system, or the communications network that allows each part of your brain to communicate with the others. It's an essential function, critical to your overall cognitive function and especially the working memory you rely on throughout the day.

    And in the new study, men given a drink spiked with green tea extract aced their memory tests when compared to men given a placebo drink.

    This isn't some vague long-term benefit, either. In fact, MRIs revealed the effect is almost immediate, according to the study in the journal Psychopharmacology.

    And that's not all the health benefits of green tea do for your brain.

    Other studies have shown how a compound in green tea, epigallocatechin-3-gallate or EGCG, can break up the metal build-ups in the brain that form the plaques linked to dementia and Alzheimer's disease.

    If that's all green tea did, I'd recommend brewing up a cup or two every day -- because breaking up those plaques is the key to making sure you never suffer from dementia.

    But green tea can do so much more. It can protect your heart, prevent cancer and fight off major diseases. And if that's not enough, it can even help reduce your blood pressure and lower your cholesterol levels.

    Just make sure you pass on the bottled stuff, which is loaded with preservatives, coloring agents and sweeteners. Many of them don't even contain the nutrients that make green tea such a healthy option.

    Brew your own instead. Choose a quality tea from a maker you trust, and avoid anything grow in the contaminated soil of China.

  2. How the effects of green tea fight dementia

    Green tea compound protects the brain

    It's the all-natural brain booster that can protect and preserve memory and give your concentration a boost when you need it most.

    And that's not the only trick the effects of green tea have brewing.

    It can also help protect you from the "brain plaques" that lead to dementia and Alzheimer's disease.

    These plaques are essentially scars that form on the brain, and what makes them especially scary is that once they form, there's often no turning back.

    Big Pharma has spent billions trying to develop a drug for those plaques, and they've come up empty.

    But the safe and natural effects of green tea contain a compound that might succeed where drugs have failed. It's called EGCG, or epigallocatechin-3-gallate, and in a new study it was able to break up the metals that form those plaques -- specifically copper, iron, and zinc.

    And even better, this powerful polyphenol can prevent those metals from forming new plaques.

    Now, when I test patients and find high levels of these and other metals, they often ask me a question you may be asking right now.

    Aren't these metals essential to health? Aren't they available in stores in vitamins and even sold as individual supplements?

    The answer is yes -- but these metals are only essential in small amounts, which is why you should stick to getting metals from the effects of green tea and avoid supplementing unless you've been specifically diagnosed with a deficiency.

    But even without supplements, many of us are exposed to unhealthy levels of metals from food, water, and other sources -- and when you get too much, they can accumulate in the brain and wreak havoc.

    Even when they don't form those plaques, they can lead to memory loss and other neurological problems.

    That's why it's essential to get tested for metals, especially if you've been suffering from any form of "brain fog" and even if you've been told you're in the early stages of dementia.

    And while green tea can help protect a healthy brain, don't rely on it alone to rid yourself of metals. You'll need a thorough detoxification program, possibly including chelation therapy.

    A holistic physician can test you and determine what approach is best for you. And if you're in the Southern California area, you're in luck: I'm proud to say I have one of the most highly regarded metals detoxification programs around.

    Green tea drinkers have a lower risk of cancer. Now, a new study shows how green tea sent straight to the cancer can wipe out up to 40 percent of skin tumors.
