Researchers found that drinking tea too often organizes your brain regions
According to the scientific study, researchers have found out that drinking tea could be good for your brain health. As per the new study conducted by the National University of Singapore (NUS), drinking tea regularly helps boosts brain health as compared to non-tea drinkers. Drinking tea too often organizes brain regions and are associated with healthy cognitive function, which protects your brain from age-related decline.

The research findings are published in the scientific journal Aging, the study found that participants who consumed tea either green, oolong or black tea at least four times a week for about 25 years had more organized brain regions than the non-tea drinkers.
To explain the benefits of tea consumption on the brain, Dr. Feng has compared the functionality of brain with the road traffic efficiency, where he explains brain regions as destinations and the connections between brain regions as roads. He further explained that when a road system is better organized, the movement of vehicles is more efficient.
