According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 55 million people worldwide have dementia, and the number is expected to rise to 78 million by 2030 and 139 million by 2050.
Unlike cardiovascular disease, the actions to support the brain are less straightforward. But one study found that drinking tea can cut the risk of dementia in half.
In a study published in the Journal of Nutrition, Health and Aging, a team of scientists from the National University of Singapore examined how regular tea drinking affects the onset of dementia. The study included more than 950 people from China, aged 55 or older.
The results showed that those who drank the tea every day had a 50% lower risk of developing dementia. For participants with the APOE e4 gene, which increases the risk of Alzheimer’s disease, daily tea consumption reduced the risk by 86%.
