It turns out that when we drink tea regularly, we encourage our brain, and thus increase and prolong our mental activity.
To such a conclusion came scientists from the National University of Singapore. As a result of their research became known that tea has a positive effect on the efficiency of the brain’s connections.
For their test, they took 36 elderly aged 60 years. The researchers divided the subjects into two groups: those who drink tea frequently and those who do not drink it or drink less often. A group of tea enthusiasts took the people who drink it at least four times a week.
Scientists have discovered that those who loved tea, had a higher efficiency of interconnections in the brain.
The researchers clarify that to improve the efficiency of the brain’s connections is necessary while drinking tea four times a week. And note that the link between regular tea consumption and reduction of interhemispheric asymmetry – evidence of the use of this habit for the brain.
