Not only green tea keeps you awake but it can also make you smarter. Yes, you read it right! One of the active ingredient found in green tea is caffeine but the amount found in green tea is lesser than coffee which it will do more or less about the same job but without causing the “jittery” effects associated with too much caffeine.  It also contains amino acid L-theanine which has anti-anxiety effects, increases dopamine and production of alpha waves in the brain. Studies have proven that with the combination of these 2 ingredients, it will improve brain function.
