Green Tea consumption against stroke

July 1, 2014

A stroke can cause chronic disability and death in patients. This review by Navabi et al researched recent research on the neuroprotecitve agents for stroke with emphasis on Camellia sinensis L. (tea or Green Tea). Tea is the second most consumed beverage worldwide, after water.
Catechins, a type of polyphenol, are the main phytochemical constituents of tea and these compounds have high antioxidant capacity.
Their review show that there is significant research that supports the protective effects of tea consumption against ischemic stroke.
