Let’s discuss the many benefits of green tea and how it can help with depression. But what exactly is green tea?

Green tea is a drink made from unfermented leaves, which makes it different from other types of tea. It contains many pharmacologically active compounds that have been found to have numerous health benefits.

One of these benefits is its ability to reduce depression. Studies have shown that drinking just three cups of green tea per week can reduce depression by 21 percent, while drinking one cup per day versus four cups per day can bump up the reduction of depression by 51 percent.

But how exactly does green tea help with depression?

Green tea has been found to have an impact on certain areas of the brain, such as the prefrontal cortex and the nucleus accumbens, which are involved in addiction.

It also affects the hippocampus, which plays a role in cognitive function, memory, and learning.

Another compound found in green tea is L-theanine, an amino acid that helps with mood stabilization and has been shown to improve depression directly.

But the benefits of green tea don’t stop there. Studies have also shown it to be anti-carcinogenic, antimicrobial, and neuroprotective. It has even been found to reverse age-related cognitive decline.

But drinking green tea isn’t the only natural way to combat depression. Here are some other methods you can try:
• Exercise: A study found that exercise may have effects similar to Zoloft in reducing symptoms of depression. High-intensity interval training has been proven to be particularly beneficial for those with depression and anxiety.
• Vitamin D: Deficiency in this essential nutrient has been linked to a higher risk of depression, so get enough sunlight and take a vitamin D supplement.
• Fasting: Fasting has been found to have survival properties that can help our bodies function better, including reducing symptoms of depression.

  • @nebulous962 says:

    I wouldn’t be surprised if just getting more nutrients like calcium and magnesium would do more to treat depression than those antidepressants.

    • @solocamo3654 says:

      I’ve found extreme nausea with any Tea on an empty stomach. Even a few bits of oatmeal is enough to stop that from happening though.

  • @C.N.1 says:

    After reading about how millions of pounds of toxic substances yearly are released into Texas, Indiana, Alaska, California, etc. waters, it wouldn’t hurt to add a bunch of Sun Chlorella to that green tea! 💯 Thank you, Dr. Berg, for sharing this remedy with us! Have a great Sunday, y’all! 🙂

  • @lisalacroix7906 says:

    Thank you, Dr Berg. Wishing everyone here an amazing day! ❤🎉❤

  • @Jimbo878 says:

    Micro sprints, running like you had a tiger behind you, while counting “1 elephant, 2 elephants, 3 elephants, 4 elephants, 5 elephants and stop” this has rapidly reset my daughter’s depression, insomnia and fatigue, it’s the #1 remedy.

  • @a.williams45 says:

    Absolutely true, Dr Berg. Green tea is wonderful. Thank you so much for your helpful advice 🙏🏻

  • @bird271828 says:

    Family problems lead to depression. No amount of tea can fix that.

    • @joanwatkins3022 says:

      @bird271828. I agree but if any inexpensive substance can help a little bit, I’m all for it. Anything that can help you feel more in control is helpful.

    • @laurannbrook9964 says:

      I feel ya. But tea can for sure help your body cope and then take the next steps. It starts with the mindset too. If you don’t think tea will help at all then it probably won’t. But if you test different blends and study herbal medicine you can find a healthier path in all areas. I’m not a doctor but I’ve managed depression most of my life with the help of teas and herbs. Most healing opportunities I have had to learn because I’m already to so many meds I’ve always been into naturally healing methods and nutrition. It’s a fascinating journey.

  • @sam-vv4ps says:

    Husband and I love your vitamins Dr Berg! Seriously life changing!!!! We did Keto— he lost 85lbs! I lost 65lbs! We still fast and eat keto meals. We also” ground “ twice per day. We feel better, he was told he had to take blood pressure meds, insulin, he had severe depression, anxiety, beginnings of Alzheimer’s… he was 100% disabled per the VA. Thanks to you… he stopped drinking alcohol, started green tea, eating better and feeling better. Only thing is he was a Camp Lejeune Marine…. Chemical damage to brain and nerves. However…. his mood, health and outlook are much better and depression is minimal…. Thank you! If you only had an idea of how powerful your words are and life changing your education is – the VA doctors are amazed. You have a heart Gold! 🏆🥹

    big fan of woods myself…

    • @babybelle5 says:

      Where I live in the US, we have lots of Rails-to-Trails to walk on, and they are awesome. There’s lots of flowing streams and small waterfalls next to them which I also find therapeutic.

  • @a.williams45 says:

    Fasting is so powerful, Dr Berg. All this information is relevant and helpful. Thank you 🙏🏻🌞

    Love the story of the suicidal guy that inadvertently fasted and healed himself. Dr. Berg you are so wonderful and I so appreciate you!

  • @user-vm3fk6io5h says:

    I have dealt with low mood my entire adult life. 10 months of Keto has helped a lot. I went off Keto when on vacation a couple weeks back in Florida. I had a depressive episode and ended up in bed by 6:30 pm on night. Anyhow I’m back on track. Just added in long walks, sitting out in the sun and now green tea is next. I am due for my annual physical and am going to wean off of Effexor. Been on it for 20 years. Thanks for everything Dr. Berg.
