A toast to health
DID you know that a cup of tea can boost your mental and physical well-being?
Research carried out by Dr Georgie Russell from Unilever R&D and the Lipton Institute of Tea shows that drinking tea can improve one’s mood, enhance focus and alertness plus lower the risk of ischemic stroke – thanks to theanine and tea flavonoids.
Theanine and caffeine in tea optimise activation of parts of the brain responsible for attention.
Tea flavonoids help blood vessels to relax and dilate, which is critical for a healthy cardiovascular system.
