We Lift Our Cuppa Green Tea To You, and To Your Health!
We are all familiar at this point with the slew of health benefits associated with drinking green tea with its antibiotic, anti-cancer, and anti-depressant properties… to name just a few. Now, a new study indicates a correlation between green tea consumption and a reduced risk of functional disability later in life.
This study conducted by researchers at the Tohoku University Graduate School of Medicine took into account 14,000 individuals age 65 or more, for three years. In total, people who drank five cups of green tea per day were about 33% less likely to develop disabilities than people who drank very little green tea, while daily consumption of three to four cups per day resulted in a 25% decreased risk, on average.
The short of it? Those who drank the most green tea each day were least likely to develop disabilities. While there is certainly always more research to be done in this realm, we find this news positively inspiring. When there are so many delicious options are available to us, why not join in on the fun?
