Green Tea Protects The Brain

I am amazed that every time I turn around there is some more evidence that Green Tea is nothing short of a miracle drug. Now it looks like green tea isn't just good for the heart but it can also protect the brain. They are saying that green tea is good for people who have Sleep Apnea. A new study suggests that compounds found in Green Tea can help ward off neurological damage that comes with the breathing disorder; Sleep Apnea.

Researchers found that when they added green tea oxidants to rat's drinking water, it shielded the animals brain during oxygen deprivation mimicking sleep apnea. People who have sleep apnea stop and start breathing throughout the night. Sleep apnea has been shown to be a potential life threatening condition because the brain is actually deprived of oxygen during these periods when people stop breathing. It has also been know to cause death in some cases.

So drink your Green Tea every day. For more information on Green Tea and its benefits visit Tea In Your Life.com
