Green Tea could protect you from Alzheimer’s

Scientists found that an antioxidant found in green tea decreased production of beta-amyloid, a protein that forms the plaques that clog the brains of Alzheimer’s victims. Months of administration reduced plaque formulation by as much as 54 percent, researchers from the University of Florida found.

Researchers explained that drinking ordinary green tea may not lead to the same plaque reduction seen in the study because other ingredients in the beverage appear to block EGCG’s benefits.

However, he went on to explain that supplement pills containing EGCG might help. Other studies have shown EGCG may prevent certain cancers and could block the spread of the HIV virus that causes AIDS.

Researchers have tested the safety of high doses in people and found no major side effects.
