Tea boosts brain powerA Dutch study suggests that the nutrients found in a cup of tea may boost your brain power and increase alertness.

The researchers studied the brain activity in 44 young volunteers to analyse the effect of key chemicals, an amino acid called L-theanine, and caffeine at levels typically found in a cup of tea. It was found that the natural ingredients radically enhanced accuracy across a number of switching tasks for those who drank the tea after 20 and 70 minutes, compared with those who didn't.

Moreover, the study suggests that tea drinkers' had heightened alertness and were less tired as compared to their non tea-drinker counterparts. According to researchers, the results of the study suggest that the combination helps to focus attention during a demanding cognitive task.

The study was published in the journal Nutritional Neuroscience.
