Black tea good for the heart

Drinking black tea is an easy…and delicious…way to reduce the risks of heart attacks and strokes.

 Here are some of the benefits to drinking black tea.

 1.  Black tea helps to manage diabetes.  It contains polysaccharides that slow blood sugar absorption.

2.  Black tea protects the heart by relaxing blood vessels which in turn reduces the rate of cardiovascular disease and the risk of heart attack and stroke.

3.  Black tea is a great source of powerful epigallocatechin gallate (egcg) antioxidants which are vital to health and immunity maintenance.

4.  Black tea helps combat the harmful effects of stress.

About The Leaf Lover
Aloha, my name is Byron Goo. I started our company in 1995 in my garage. Tea has taken me all over the world since then and I continue to be a student of the leaf and of life. The Leaf Lover is a way for me to share about my passion for tea and our small business. I wear many hats including CEO of the company but I think of myself simply as a tea maker.
