A report from the Tea Advisory Panel (TAP) joins the ranks of a growing body of research showing how making a daily brew can help to maintain inner calm in today’s lifestyle.
Here are the key findings on this body part:
Chest, upper back, breasts, heart and lungs
Health concerns: heart and vascular health, lung function and back pain
Tea evidence: There is a huge amount of research into how drinking tea might benefit hearth health, particularly vascular function. Research has found that drinking four to five cups of tea daily may reduce the risk of high blood pressure. The effect is thought to be due to natural compounds, called flavonoids, which stimulate the vasolidator, nitric oxide.
Try drinking: Regular tea. Meta-analyses find that both green and black tea drinkers have a reduced risk of heart disease than those who don’t drink tea.
Tea fact: 32 percents of Brits believe a cuppa makes them feel less stressed or anxious.
Keep an eye, coming soon… Stomach and upper digestive system, liver, kidneys, lower back.
