Green tea stroke research: Can you prevent life-threatening damage?

A cerebrovascular stroke is still the #3 killer in the United States and a growing problem worldwide.

There are more than 700,000 strokes in the U.S. each year with over 160,000 deaths, for a cost of $54 billion U.S., in 2004 (CDC, AHA).

Strokes happen suddenly and are dangerous.

If you believe you or someone near you is having a stroke, you should call an emergency health provider immediately.

Fast medical treatment could mean the difference between life and death.

Many think a stroke is worse than death

People view having a stroke as worse than death (Samsa, 1998). And with good reason–up to 30% of stroke patients become permanently disabled because of brain damage.

Most strokes occur when a blood clot cuts off the blood supply to your brain cells, leaving those cells to die.

Your whole body can be affected, but usually your arms and legs can be paralyzed, or speech centers are damaged, leaving you unable to walk, move your arms, or unable to speak.

Prevention is the best way to fight strokes

The American Heart Association says “effective prevention remains the best treatment for reducing the burden of stroke” (Primary prevention of ischemic stroke: a guideline from the American Heart Association, Stroke, 2006).

Prevention simply means the positive things you do every day for your health.

After you learn about the following studies from green tea stroke reearch, you may choose to add daily green tea to your stroke prevention plan.

*Up to 75% strokes prevented with green or black tea

Both green and black tea have shown strong prevention of strokes.

  • A study of 40,000 middle-aged people in Japan showed from 40% to 60% fewer strokes among those who drank more than 5 cups of green tea daily. (Kuriyama, 2006)

  • A study of 14,000 adults in China showed 75% fewer strokes with daily black tea, 65% fewer strokes with daily green tea, but only 25% fewer strokes with daily jasmine tea.

    The more tea the people drank each day, the fewer strokes. (Chen, 2004)

  • A study that followed 6000 middle-aged women in Japan showed 50% fewer strokes in the group that drank more than 5 cups of green tea daily than in the group that drank less than 5 cups daily. (Sato, 1989)

  • A study that followed 552 men in the Netherlands for 15 years showed 70% fewer strokes in the group that drank more than 5 cups black tea daily than in the group that drank less than 3 cups black tea daily. (Keli, 1996)

More brain cells protected with green tea

Animal studies on green tea stroke research have shown that both green tea extract and EGCG, the strongest antioxidant in green tea, consistently reduce the size of a stroke by approximately 80% and reduce the number of brain cells dying by up to 50%.

The greatest protection was always with the largest amount of daily green tea.

Coffee study shows only 25% reduced risk

What about other caffeinated beverages? A study of coffee drinking among women found only 22% to 25% reduced risk of stroke with more than one cup daily compared to those who did not drink coffee (Susanna C et al, Coffee Consumption And Risk Of Stroke In Women, Stroke, March 2011).
