Green tea reduces heart disease 

green tea


Greek scientists have found that regularly drinking green tea can significantly reduce cardiovascular-related morbidity and mortality.

According to a study published in the European Journal of Cardiovascular Prevention and Rehabilitation, green tea improves the function of endothelial cells that line the blood vessels and prevent the progression of atherosclerosis.

Athens Medical School researchers believe that the high flavonid content of green tea is responsible for improved endothelial function.

Findings reveal that compared to black tea, green tea flavonoids are more potent antioxidants as they do not undergo oxidization.

Previous studies had reported that drinking green tea has various health benefits; it is associated with a reduced risk of diabetes and certain malignancies, particularly prostate cancer.
