I've talked about the many health benefits of green tea for years. It's one of the few beverages I recommend other than water. Four years ago, I told you that green tea is partly responsible for the low rate of Alzheimer's and dementia in Japan. Now there's a way to make green tea work even better for your memory.
A recent study followed 91 participants with mild cognitive impairment. They all took a green tea extract and showed improved memory and selective attention. Then the researchers gave them a single dose of L-theanine and gave the subjects hourly EEG (brain wave) tests for three hours. They had significantly more theta waves broadly across their brains. These waves indicate cognitive alertness. The researchers double blinded and placebo controlled the study. This is the best study you can do.
Green tea has powerful flavonoids that do wonders for brain biochemistry. And taking L-theanine with it will make it work even better. You can either drink green tea daily or take Advanced Bionutritionals Green Tea Extract (one capsule daily). I drink real green tea almost every day. You'll get just as good or even better effect from a single capsule, which has the benefits of several cups of fresh made green tea. Consider adding 100 mg of L-theanine. You can find it at any health food store and online.
