Dementia: Drinking tea could halve your risk of mental decline


Over the 20-year follow-up period, researchers found that those who reported the higher flavonoid intake were around 40 percent less likely to develop dementia, compared with people who’d reported the lowest intakes.

Harvard Health explains: “There are many different types of flavonoids; those with the greatest link to lower dementia risk come from tea, apples, pears, blueberries and strawberries.

“A high intake was about the same as having 7.5 cups of berries, eight apples or pears, and 19 cups of tea per month.

“A low intake was the same as having no berries or tea and less than two apples per month.”
