Japanese researchers continue to uncover new and better benefits for people who drink this humble liquid. Initial studies link green tea drinking to a reduced mortality risk and lower risk of stroke, dementia, and bone fractures. Tea drinkers also have less psychological distress.

Antioxidants, including epigalloccatechin gallate, are the suspected protective culprits.
