Green Tea

Green Tea Study

We are getting lots of enquiries about the ‘green tea’ study that has recently been published in The Lancet Neurology journal.

The initial findings are exciting and hold great promise that may be realised with further research. At this stage, however there are no practical applications from the study.

DS NSW cannot recommend that people self-medicate with green tea. It is important that the public be aware of limitations in what is known about potential effects and side-effects of unsupervised use of EGCG ‘treatment.’

We can recommend that you read what the what the experts are saying.
