Health Benefits of Black Tea
Black Tea has been a favorite around the globe due to its delicious robust taste and its health benefits which include:
* Black tea is abundant in antioxidants, such as flavonoids which have demonstrated to prevent the oxidation of LDL cholesterol, preventing damage in both the bloodstream and at artery walls, and lowering the risk of heart disease.
* Black Tea flavonoids are able to both improve coronary vasodilation and reduce clots.
*Polypehnols found in black tea are also very strong antioxidants. *The manganese in black tea may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease by helping cardiac muscle function.
Digestive Tract Health
*The tannins in black tea have a therapeutic effect on gastric and intestinal illnesses and make it a great digestive aid. The tea has been used for this exact purpose in China for thousands of years. These tannins have been researched to decrease intestinal activity and also to help create an antidiarrheal effect.
Brain and Nervous System
* The low amounts of caffeine in black tea promote blood flow in the brain without over stimulating the heart.
*The caffeine in black tea can enhance mental focus and concentration.
* Studies show that the amino acid L-theanine found in black tea can help a person relax and therefor concentrate more fully on tasks.
*Black tea has been shown to reduce levels of the stress hormone cortisol after a month of drinking four cups of tea daily.
*The caffeine in black tea might also give a person's memory the boost it needs for a few hours.
*Studies suggest that a regular tea habit may help protect against Parkinson's disease.
*In moderation caffeine can give a person energy - in black tea it stimulates the metabolism, increases brain function and aids alertness.
*The caffeine in tea acts as more of a subtle stimulant, taking more than a few minutes to take effect, rather than hitting your system as quickly as coffee or cola. This effect is assisted by another compound found only in tea, theophylline.
Bone and Connective Tissue
*Studies indicate that the bones of regular tea drinkers are stronger than those of non-tea drinkers. Scientists theorize it may be an effect of the powerful tea's phytochemicals.
*Research suggests that catechin antioxidants in black tea may reduce oral cancers.
*Tea's polyphenols and tannin perform as antibiotics, preventing bacteria that cause tooth decay.
*The polyphenols in tea may help keep in check the bacteria that cause bad breath.
*Polyphenols in tea seem to help in preventing formation of potential carcinogens in the body.
*Other studies reveal that a compound in black tea called TF-2 causes some cancer cells to go into apoptosis (programmed cell death) while normal cells remain unaffected.
*Black Tea is full of substances called "tannins," which studies have shown have the ability to fight many viruses.
*One such tannin named "catechin" has been researched to help suppress tumors. Black tea also contains alkylamine antigens, which help boost immune response.
