Green Tea!


The main antioxidant in green tea could be a potent way to prevent Parkinson’s and other neurodegenerative diseases, according to research done by Prof. Moussa Youdim and Dr. Silvia Mandel, co-director of the Parkinson Foundation Centers at the Technion.

The substance, EGCG, can enter brain cells and keep neurons from dying. Mandel found that even after many neurons have already been damaged, the green tea antioxidant is capable of rescuing the remaining healthy ones. If taken in moderation, she suggests, green tea may be part of both a prevention and anti-progression strategy.
