A Proud Sponsor of Memory Ball 2015 - Green Tea Protects Against Alzheimer's Disease

On March 28th, 2015 Memory Ball will be hosting it's 4th annual charity event at the Palais Royale in Toronto, and Tea Leaf Co. is proud to be one of the sponsors and supporter! Founded 4 years ago with a mission to change the course of Alzheimer's disease and spread awareness among young people, the proceeds raised from the event are donated to the Alzheimer Society of Toronto in support of their mission.

In spirit of the upcoming ball, and the nearly 40 million people worldwide affected by Alzheimer's and dementia, we want to highlight how daily consumption of organic green tea reduces the risk and proves to be beneficial, according to numerous studies and resources.  

Green tea, infamous for it's powerful antioxidant properties, this verdant leaf has strong protective effects for the brain. The antioxidants found in green tea removes harmful free radicals that can be damaging to brain cells. As a result, green tea can ward off Alzheimer's-related memory loss in two or more-direct ways.

One of the clear signs of Alzheimer's is the presence of unusually high levels of AChE (acetylcholinesterase) in the person's brain. AChE breaks down the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, an important chemical messenger. Therefore, consuming green tea may slow down the progression of dementia in Alzheimer's disease.

Amyloid plaques and protein tangles created by Alzheimer's disease lead to brain cell death over time. Scientists now believe green tea inhibits beta-secretase, a substance that contributes to the formation of these harmful proteins in the brain. This is a second way green tea proves to protect the brain against Alzheimer. 

Ultimately, memory formation occurs more easily with each sip of green tea. It aids your working memory, which is crucial for learning and problem solving. And it's also extra protection against Alzheimer's dementia. With so many health benefits, it's no wonder green tea is acclaimed as the ultimate super food in our books. There really is a ton of healthy goodness in a soul soothing cup of organic green tea! It's win win win.
