Black Tea and Lower Heart Disease Risk

separator Six cups of tea might sound like a lot if you’re not a regular tea drinker. But a recent study of 3,400 adults in Saudi Arabia showed that people who drank that much tea had a 50 percent lower risk of coronary artery disease than people who drank no tea at all. The study participants ranged in age from 30 to 70 years old.

Tea is rich in antioxidants called flavonoids. It’s thought that flavonoids can lower blood pressure and the risk of clotting, and that they can reduce levels of LDL, or “bad” cholesterol.
