Scientists have revealed the benefits of black tea: reduces the risk of dangerous diseases

Black tea can reduce the risk of developing heart disease, including hypertension (high blood pressure) and its consequences.

This was reported by the Express. This method is becoming increasingly relevant due to the fact that the World Health Organization has named heart disease as one of the leading causes of death worldwide.

Thus, according to a study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, regular consumption of black tea helps fight hypertension.

The study participants drank three cups of this hot drink a day. They felt the result on the first day. The effect lasted for 6 months.

Another study published in the American Journal of Medicine showed that regular consumption of black tea can help reduce various risk factors for heart disease, such as high cholesterol, high triglycerides, and obesity.

Another study published in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that those who drank three cups of black tea a day had an 11% lower risk of developing heart disease.

The number of cups drunk varied from study to study, but on average, three to five per day was considered.

This effect is explained by the fact that black tea is rich in flavonoids, which have beneficial anti-inflammatory properties and protect cells from oxidative damage. Flavonoids are associated with improved heart health, as they lower blood pressure, tone heart muscles, dilate coronary vessels, and reduce blood clotting.
