Did you know that drinking one cup of tea daily would benefit your heart health? In this article, we will find the details about drinking tea benefits.
In a new study about drinking tea benefits on heart health, researchers revealed that drinking one cup of tea a day helps reduce the chances of premature death and reduces the risk of heart disease and heart attacks.
According to this study published in the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology, drinking tea helps improve overall cardiovascular health.
The researchers were able to reach these results by targeting about 100,902 participants in good health and without a previous history of heart disease.
The researchers put the participants into two groups, one would ask them to drink tea at least three times a week
and the second group would never ask them to drink tea.
After following the participants for about seven years, the researchers found the following results:
- Participants who would drink tea enjoyed better health compared to those who did not drink tea.
- Reduced risk of heart disease and heart attack by about 20% for those who consumed tea.
- The risk of dying from heart disease was reduced by about 22% in the tea-consuming group.
And the researchers suggested that this relationship between tea consumption and the reduced risk of various heart diseases may be due to the presence of phenols
which are naturally occurring substances in green and red tea.
The researchers explained that these substances do not remain for long in the human body
hence the role and importance of drinking tea continuously.
