Reap Green Tea and Whey Protein’s Benefits in the Same Drink

Did you know that green tea may enhance your short-term working memory?

This is not meant to be a statement to change your life or make you guzzle down green tea with every meal. BUT, it does enhance the list of benefits green tea already has!  Plus, it certainly makes me feel good about drinking it…now I’ll remember everyyyyything.  Well, ok, maybe not everything. Still, green tea is not a bad choice when making a pit stop at the coffee shop on the way to work!  Look at this list of benefits:

  • The polyphenols found in green tea (specifically epigallocatechin gallate or EGCG if you want to save that word for the dinner table) has been shown to boost metabolism.
  • It contains the amino acid L-theanine which improves concentration and reduces stress as well as anxiety. So, add that to a small dose of caffeine and green tea gives you a different kind of buzz.
  • It improves insulin sensitivity and helps regulate glucose levels which slows the rise of blood sugar after eating and can help prevent type 2 diabetes.
  • Periodontal health! Green tea contains antioxidants called catechins which can destroy bacteria associated with cavities and tooth decay.
  • Mice studies have shown delay of deterioration caused by Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s by protecting brain cells from dying and restoring damaged brain cells.

And now newer studies are suggesting it may also help with short-term memory. This part of your memory is like your brain’s sticky notes where information is temporarily held before either forgetting or permanently being stored in long-term memory.
