Findings Published in August Issue of Journal of Nutrition

NEW YORK, July 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Drinking four to five cups of tea a day may help maintain a healthy mind and body, according to new research published in a supplement to the August issue of the Journal of Nutrition. One study's results suggest that four to five cups of tea a day may improve attention and focus. This and other studies on tea polyphenols, including research on neurological health, genetic susceptibility to cancer, and insulin sensitivity are included in the Proceedings of the Fourth International Scientific Symposium on Tea and Human Health. The supplement also provides an update on the evidence in support of tea's role in cardiovascular health, and the bioavailability of its beneficial flavonoids.

Lenore Arab, Ph.D., Professor of Internal Medicine at the University of California, Los Angeles and Blumberg's partner as Tea Symposium co-chair adds that, "There are tremendous advancements to better understand the mechanisms by which tea may reduce risk for heart disease, certain cancers, type II diabetes, and help maintain neurological function."

"Our results show that after having theanine, individual
