Every one-cup increase in daily consumption of tea was linked to a 4% reduction in the risk of dying from cardiovascular disease, according to a study.
Researchers analysed data from 39 observational studies that included over 1.8 million men and women who drank black or green tea. The study review is published in ‘Advances in Nutrition.’
They discovered that every one-cup increase in daily tea consumption was related with a 2% reduction in any cardiovascular event, a 4% reduction in death from cardiovascular disease, a 4% reduction in stroke risk, and a 1.5 percent reduction in death from any cause. The impacts were most pronounced in older people.
Tea contains a high concentration of flavonoids, plant pigments that have been found in animal and human studies to reduce oxidative and inflammatory stress and improve blood vessel function. These effects may help with cardiovascular health.
According to the senior author, Taylor C Wallace, principal consultant of the Think Healthy Group and adjunct professor at George Mason University, tea drinkers ingest around 20 times more flavonoids than non-tea drinkers.
