Green tea protects against Parkinson's
Polyphenols present in green tea might have a protective effect in Parkinson's disease, say researchers. They measured levels of dopamine uptake in mice with neurotoxin-induced injury before and after treatment with polyphenol. They found that treatment with polyphenol inhibited uptake of dopamine by blocking dopamine transport.
This finding was presented at the annual meeting of the American Academy of Neurology in Denver, Colarado, on 16 April.
