Video B-Roll Via Satellite: New research shows tea impacts brain function and may help increase the mind's ability to focus.

    TORONTO, Sept. 17 /CNW/ - New research being presented at the Fourth
International Scientific Symposium on Tea & Human Health on Sept. 18th in
Washington D.C. reveals additional potential health benefits of tea, including
new human clinical studies on tea's ability to alter the attention networks of
the brain, impact dopamine and serotonin production and more.
    Additional studies show a correlation between tea consumption and
decreased incidence of dementia, Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases. The
human epidemiological and new animal data point to tea's ability to help
maintain brain health as the brain ages, helping to save brain cells from
death and even repairing ones that have already been harmed.
    These and other new findings in the areas of tea and cardiovascular
health, gene expression and weight management will be outlined in the
satellite B-Roll package.
