Scientists Think Green Tea Extract Can Be Used To Cure Dementia

Green tea has been used for centuries to prevent or cure many illnesses. Also, since old times people have observed its beneficial effects. In modern times, too, there have been a lot of research studying its positive impact on human health and also to see if any of its ingredients can be helpful in treatment of cancer. Though many of those researches failed to reach a conclusion, a new study has shown something quite interesting, it says that green tea extract can enhance the cognitive functions especially the working memory.

The study, supervised by the team of Dr. Christoph Beglinger of the University Hospital of Basel and Prof. Stefan Borgwardt from the Psychiatric University Clinics found that green tea causes the brainโ€™s effective connectivity to increase. In other words, it increases the influence that one area of the brain exerts over another.

In the experiment, the male volunteers were given a soft drink containing several grams of green tea extract before they solved working memory tasks. After analyzing the brain activity of the men by MRI, it was seen that the connectivity between parietal and frontal cortex of the brain increased and the subjects performed better on the memory tasks. The study concluded that green tea increases the short term synaptic plasticity of the brain.

Though anybody can use green tea extract to help them increase their memory, it will also have vast clinical implications and scientists are planning to try it out as the treatment of many neuropsychiatric disorders like dementia.

  1. Please there is a cure for dementia and no one knows. This is my husbandโ€™s story… My husband was a retired force man, he had partial stroke 5 years ago, and then i was still working. His condition got worse and he was hospitalized. After some time of treatment he began to behave abnormal, like someone who has lost memory of event and occurrence. i shared tears the very day i walked to him in the hospital and he could not even recognize me. This is am man that is very playful and highly romantic. Each day i hold him to myself and share tears the more. He was not able to do anything just look at me like a bull dog and do so many abnormal things. Later on doctor brought a recent report and he was diagnosed of dementia this doctor says have no cure that he would die a brainless man. Oh my God i fainted when i heard this. I raised my voice and cry to God to help me from this. So i began to hope and trust God to do miracle. My pastor was a great pillar of encouragement to me. i did all i can to get a cure for him, but none worked out, i spent thousands of USD trying to get a cure for him. But behold a friends doctor came visiting and said to me letโ€™s look if herbal remedy can help him get any better so he gave me your website which is www. drisimhenmhenherbalhome.com there i saw how people testified of the good works of herbs in their life, so i decided to contact the doctor because his contact details was on his website.. The first time i emailed him, i got no reply from him, so i decided to call him on the phone. I called him, and told him what he could do was to laugh and said to me that anything the enemy have planned against my husband must fail, he said to me that he have cured CJD and this is similar to what my husband have. After all, he prepared herbs and sent to me, i have to force my husband to take it because before then he was not taking anything from me to eat anymore. but behold sir it was just like a magic gradually my husband begin to get better, better and today sir i am proud to say my husband is totally cured, He you cured my husband of this deadly dementia disease and now i keep my promise i made to him before the cure that i will let the entire world know about his herbs if my husband is cured.
