42,093 Japanese individuals from the general population aged 40 years or more were assessed for psychological distress and the relationship between green tea consumption (Hozawa A, et al. 2009). Other lifestyle factors were also accounted for.
The results showed that green tea consumption was inversely associated with psychological distress even after adjustment for possible confounding factors.
Green tea is a good source of antioxidants and has been documented to provide several health benefits in addition to lower psychological distress. If you like to drink something warm, green tea would be the choice.
