Green Tea Reduce Stress and Anxiety

An extensive Japanese study confirms what many tea drinkers already know: green tea reduces stress and anxiety.

A 2009 study conducted by Tohoku University Graduate School of Medicine showed that drinking green tea may help with stress.

The scientists found that drinking green tea may reduce psychological stress by as much as 20%.

In this study of 42,093 Japanese individuals, 6.6% suffered from psychological stress.

In those individuals suffering from stress, green tea consumption improved psychological well-being.
