Metropekanbaru.com, Singapore – You include the diligent one neheh; If so, you may have better brain performance than those who rarely drink. According to a recent study by the National University of Singapore (NUS).
By examining adult brain data, the researchers found that drinking tea at least four times a week had more effective parts of the brain, according to the NUS release. Channel News Asia (CNA), on Thursday (12/9).
The study team recruited 36 adults 60 years of age and older to collect data on their health, lifestyle and psychological status. They have also undergone neuropsychological and magnetic resonance imaging tests (Magnetic illustration), which runs from 2015 to 2018.
As a result, those who consumed green tea, oolong tea or black tea at least four times a week for about 25 years had more connected and effective parts of the brain.

"Take the comparison of road traffic as an example – think of the brain as a destination while connecting between parts of the brain is the road. When the road system is more organized, vehicle and passenger traffic is less efficient and less intense.
"Similarly, when the connections between the parts of the brain are more structured, information processing can be more efficiently implemented," said Assistant Professor Feng.
Previous studies have shown that tea intake is beneficial to human health and includes positive effects & # 39; Mood & # 39; or the availability and disposal and prevention of cardiovascular disease.
The study, carried out in collaboration with the University of Essex and the University of Cambridge, was published in a scientific journal entitled & # 39; Aging & # 39; or aging on June 14th.
In a statement to the media, the next step in the study was to understand how memory is created by brain circuits as well as possible interventions to maintain cognition during the aging process.
