Prevent Heart Disease By Three Cups of Tea by Antara News
The researchers said that drinking three cups of tea a day can
prevent heart attacks and strokes. Reviews of new shows black or
green tea regularly can reduce the risk of heart problems by 11
percent, as quoted by the Daily Mail.
Tea reduces the progression of plaque in arteries, the combination
of fat and cholesterol. Reviews of researchers at the University of
Western Australia said that the benefits of tea largely caused by
the levels of flavonoids, antioxidants that prevent cardiovascular
disease. A cup of tea contains 150-200 mg of flavonoids.
Reviews were published in the scientific journal "Molecular Aspects
"There are consistent data indicating that tea and flavonoids
may enhance the nitric oxide and improve endothelial function,
which is partially responsible for the benefits on cardiovascular
health," said Dr. Jonathan Hodgson, who co-authored the

Dr. Catherine Hood from the industry-backed Tea Advisory Panel
compares the research on heart health benefits of tea conducted by
researchers in the United States (U.S.) with Europe.
"Compared with the U.S. study, the benefits of tea for the heart is
very strong in European research. This includes research in the UK
where the most tea consumed is black tea," said Dr. Hood.
"Plaque in the carotid artery (a marker of atherosclerosis /
inflammation of blood vessels) has shown less common in men and
women who drank tea. Considering the amount of research, including
experiments on humans, the data showed that the flavonoids in tea
may inhibit atherosclerosis."
"This review also highlights evidence from randomized trials that
tekendali showed that tea consumption can improve the health of the
lining of blood vessels as evidence that tea may reduce the risk of
high blood pressure and lowering blood pressure."
"Adding milk in tea does not affect the absorption of flavonoids
from tea, based on some human research trials. In addition,
antioxidant effects seen in our blood after eating a similar tea
though milk is added or not." And that evidence continues to grow
about three or four cups of tea every day not only good for general
health, but also heart health.
