Tea Benefits for Alzheimer’s

Guest post by Franco Colomba. Like most things that scientists get their hands on, they will usually only find a good or a bad. This time around it turns out that it is better than good. In some breakthrough research, scientists have discovered that drinking tea may actually help to lower your risk of Alzheimer’s disease, and drastically for that matter. The study was put out by the National University of Singapore, and observed more than 950 adults aged 55 years or older. Their tea drin...
