Cup of Black Tea a day keeps heart disease away

2 comments
As per a recent study, drinking one cup of black tea everyday might protect you against cardiovascular disease. This was the outcome of a study conducted at University of L'Aquila in Italy and supported by the Lipton Institute of Tea.

In the study 19 healthy men with 33 being their median age, were given one of five prescribed intakes of the tea over five periods lasting one week each. The caffeine level of each dose was standardised but the dose of tea flavonoids was controlled at the levels of 0 (the control dose), 100, 200, 400 and 800 mg per day.

It was found that black tea consumption improves blood vessel reactivity and reduces blood pressure and arterial stiffness, indicating a notably better cardiovascular health profile.
