In The News: Green Tea May Merge Gap Between Aging and Wellness

J.PattonGreen tea may hold the link between wellness and aging.

According to a study performed at Tohoku University Graduate School of Medicine, green tea may be the key to staying healthy well into your senior years. The researchers studied green tea-drinking habits of 14,000 adults, ages 65 and older. Those who drank the most green tea performed day-to-day tasks, such as bathing and getting dressed, better than those who drank less or no tea at all.

Specifically, about 13 percent of adults who sipped less than one cup a day became functionally disabled compared with 7 percent of people who consumed at least five cups a day.

Of course, this is hardly the first time researchers have raved about the benefits of green tea. In fact, green tea has been a popular drink throughout the ages, especially in India, China, Japan and Thailand. Green tea is used in traditional Chinese and Indian medicine as a stimulant, astringent, diuretic and to improve heart health. Using green tea to alleviate flatulence, stimulate digestion, promote mental processes and regulate body temperature is also common.

Recent studies have suggested that green tea may help lower total cholesterol, protect against several types of cancer and aid in weight loss.
