A longitudinal aging study from Singapore found that regular tea consumption was associated with lower risk of neurocognitive disorders among Chinese elderly.
Over 950 participants were used for the study. All were elderly with a cognitively intact baseline.
Researchers collected tea consumption information from 2003 to 2005, and then gathered incident cases of neurocognitive disorders (NCD) from 2006 to 2010.
