Green Tea's Brain Connection

Green Tea's Brain Connection If you've had an energy supplement made with green tea extract, you may have experienced not only an increase in physical energy, but also improved mental alertness and focus. A study published in the journal Psychopharmacology suggests green tea extract increases connectivity between different brain regions to improve working memory and other functions.

Researchers gave healthy male volunteers a drink containing several grams of green tea extract. MRI showed increased connectivity between the parietal and frontal cortex, and task solving tests demonstrated an improvement in working memory.

True Strength Moment: If you're used to enjoying green tea's energy boost first thing in the morning, or right before hitting the gym for a workout, try mixing it into your late afternoon routine when you could use a brain boost for school studies or office work.
