Beijing: Chemical Found In Green Tea Can Boost Your Memory And Learning Skills

Researchers from the Third Military Medical University, Chongging, China found that chemical properties of green tea affect the generation of brain cells, providing benefits for memory and spatial learning.

Scientist said it has long been believed that drinking green tea is good for the memory.

Spatial memory is the part of memory responsible for recording information about one's environment and its spatial orientation.

"There has been plenty of scientific attention on its use in helping prevent cardiovascular diseases, but now there is emerging evidence that its chemical properties may impact cellular mechanisms in the brain." Professor Yun Bai said.

The study focussed on the organic chemical EGCG (epigallocatechin-3 gallate), a key property of green tea. While EGCG is a known anti-oxidant, the team believed it can also have a beneficial effect against age-related degenerative disease.

"We proposed that EGCG can improve cognitive function by impacting the generation of neuron cells, a process known as neurogenesis," said Bai in a statement.

"We focussed our research on the hippocampus, the part of the brain which processes information from short term to long term memory," Bai said.

The researchers found that EGCG boost the production of neural progenitor cells, which like stem cells can adapt, or differentiate into various types of cells.
