Herbal Therapy: Green Tea, Reduced risk of Early onset and Progression of Cognitive Impairment

By Kyle J. Norton

The use of plants for healing purposes has been predated long before the existence of modern medicine. Herbal plants have formed a fundamental source for conventional medicine in discovery of single ingredient medication, including aspirin (from willow bark), quinine (from cinchona bark), and morphine (from the opium poppy)......

Green tea injection is associated to reduced risk of age-related cognitive decline, a recent study postulated.

Cognitive impairment is a condition of decline of memory and thinking skills due to aging considered as an early sign of neuro degenerative diseases.

Green tea, a precious drink processes numbers of health benefit known to almost everyone in Asia and Western world. However, as yin in nature herbal medicine ,or food, long term injection of large amounts may obstruct the balance of yin-yang, induced "yin excessive syndrome" or "yang vacuity syndrome" including weaken immunity and painful case of GERD,... according to traditional Chinese medicine's Yin-Yang theory. Adding a piece of ginger will solve the problem.

In a total of 12 elderly nursing home residents with cognitive dysfunction, participants who drink green tea powder 2 g/day for 3 months showed a significantly improved cognitive performance and reduced the progression of cognitive dysfunctionindicated by Mini-Mental State Examination Japanese version (MMSE-J) score.

Other study (Japanese residents aged >60 years from Nakajima, Japan (the Nakajima Project) of 723 participants with normal cognitive function at a baseline survey (2007-2008), the 490 completed the follow up survey in 2011-2013, suggested that incidence of dementia and cognitive impairment are lower among individuals who consumed green tea 1-6 days per week compared with individuals who did not consume green tea at all.

Additionally, according to the double-blind, randomized controlled study of 39 nursing home residents with cognitive dysfunction (four men, 29 women) divided into two group either with
consumption of 2 g/day of green tea powder (containing 220.2 mg of catechins) or placebo powder (containing 0.0 mg of catechins), green tea treated group showed a significantly reduced cognitive dysfunction in 3 months follow up in compared to placebo.

The efficacy of green tea in decreased progression of cognitive impairment in the short term may be attributed to ameliorated oxidative stress and levels of low-density lipoprotein.

Taking together, Green tea may process a potential in reduced risk of early onset and progression of cognitive decline in aging population, but long term and large amount injection should be taken with care.
