“We found drinking tea improved attention and allowed individuals to be more focused on the task at hand,” said Suzanne Einöther, PhD, Unilever R&D, Vlaardingen, The Netherlands.

Einöther said the effects were found after subjects consumed two to three cups of tea within a 90-minute time period.

Since tea is the second most consumed beverage in the world next to water, it shouldn’t be hard to incorporate a little more of it into your life, for the sake of better health.

Thanks for the post. Green Tea has also been found to have dental health properties as well.
