When you’re fighting a cold, a cup of hot tea can soothe your throat and bones, but emerging research suggests that the health benefits of drinks are far deeper. I published a new research European Journal of Progressive Cardiology It has been found that drinking tea at least three times a week is associated with a significantly lower risk of cardiovascular diseases such as longevity and heart attacks.
The study evaluated 100,902 participants in the China-PAR project, which is a comprehensive health assessment in China. Participants were screened on the basis of their tea drinking habits (including green and black varieties) and were divided into two groups: individuals who consumed tea drinking three or three times a week, And those who drank nothing or drank nothing. Researchers assisted him for a period of 7.3 years to assess their health over time.
Across the board, people who drank tea habitally exhibit healthier years of life and live longer than those who drank less or didn’t eat it at all. Regular drinkers reported a 20% lower risk of cardiovascular disease and stroke, and had a 22% lower risk of fatal heart disease and stroke. In the upper reaches, they also showed a 15% lower risk of fatalities. In addition, data shows that 50-year-olds who regularly drink tea will develop symptoms of heart disease and stroke after 1.41 years and live 1.26 years longer than their tea-drinking counterparts.
Health benefits were highest among those who had a lifetime of tea. Those who had sustained the previous years, showed a 56% lower risk of fatal diseases and stroke, and those who did not drink or get rid of it, compared to those who died of death. 29% lower risk appears. Interestingly, researchers did not see any health benefits in people who started drinking tea during the follow-up period, and researchers reported that the health benefits of green tea were the highest.
This may have something to do with the active compounds of tea that improve heart health. They are called polyphenols, and they are a group of naturally occurring compounds that help to give plants their color and taste. For humans, they are a micronutrient and a basic source of antioxidants. Researchers have found that due to the mechanism of black tea leaves, their polyphenols may be less potent. And according to Dongfeng Gu, a senior author of the study, the evidence suggests that polyphenols do not last long in the body once consumed.
“Thus, repeated teas of tea may be necessary for extended interviewing effect over an extended period of time,” he said in a press release from the European Society of Cardiology.
So go ahead and place the kettle on the stove. You will bless your heart.
