Tea & Health

Even though the health benefits of tea have been known for nearly 5000 years, it has been less than a decade since people in America have been inn dated with countless studies that expose the medicinal benefits of tea.

Here is a partial list of conditions some research has shown, which may be prevented or improved by drinking tea:

Heart Disease:

A recent study published in the journal Circulation found that drinking more than two cups of tea a day decreased the risk of death following a heart attack by 44 percent. Even less spirited tea drinkers were rewarded: Consuming just two cups a day decreased the risk of death by almost a third.



Green tea extracts were found to inhibit the growth of bladder cancer cells in the lab – while other studies suggest that drinking green tea protects against developing stomach and esophageal cancers.



Research suggests that older women who are tea drinkers are 60 percent less likely to develop rheumatoid arthritis than those who do not drink tea.


Bone Density:

Drinking tea regularly for years may produce stronger bones. Those who drank tea on a regular basis for 10 or more years had higher-bone mineral density in their spines than those who had not.


Parkinson’s Disease:

Tea consumption may be protective against developing this debilitating neurological disorder.


Oral Health:

Rinsing with tea may prevent cavities and gum disease.

Almost on a weekly basis, we are reading a new study from a highly-accredited institute describing how a certain tea has a particular benefit for our health and why it is good to consume it. We realize that all this information can be overwhelming and hard to remember
