Green tea may help the brain cope with sleep disorders

Researchers have found that green tea may counteract the negative effects on the brain of sleep disorders such as sleep apnea.

Green tea polyphenols—including, one presumes, EGCG—apparently negate the increased oxidative stress that occurs in the brain when breathing stops temporarily during sleep.

You can also sleep more soundly by switching to green tea from coffee.
