New Study: Green Tea Boosts Cognitive Ability

New Study: Green Tea Boosts Cognitive Ability
A trial lasting 12 months led to an improvement of cognitive scores and behavior tests for people with down syndrome. Not only that, the improvements lasted for up to 6 months even when the trial had ended leading to new thinking when it comes to green tea.

Brain scans revealed that a compound, known as epigallocatechin gallate, altered the way neurons in the brain connect with one another.


It seems that prior treatment has not shown efficacy like this before in the cognitive improvement of people, especially with down syndrome. Therefore, it could be believed that this is a tool in the box of tricks that could be used to improve a persons quality of life rather than a full blown cure.

Down syndrome is the most common genetic form of intellectual disability, and afflicts approximately 1 in 1,000 people, according to the World Health Organization.

Also known as trisomy 21, the condition is caused by the presence of an extra, or third, copy of chromosome number 21.
