Green tea (Camellia sinensis) contains catechins, which are naturally occurring, multifunctional compounds that have been found to have potent neuroprotective (brain and nerves)effects. Specifically, the powerful green tea catechin epigallocatechin-3-gallate ( EGCG) has been found to lessen cognitive impairments induced by psychological stress, which suggests its potential to be an effective protector of brain neurons. EGCG has been shown to cross the blood-brain barrier in mammals, which is difficult for most substances. Laboratory investigations have revealed that—unlike other flavonoids—green tea compounds are able to reduce neurodegeneration, leading to memory loss or brain disease. When the catechins in green tea were scientifically tested in a wide array of cellular models of neurological diseases, they exhibited dramatic iron-chelating, free-radical-scavenging, and anti-inflammatory activities. They were also neuroprotective in models of both Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. Further investigation of these promising compounds showed that they increased detoxifying enzymes and antioxidant enzymes, and protected DNA against oxidative damage. These things all promote a healthy, cancer-free life!
