Tea for the Treatment of Hypertension

There are many ways that can be done to make the body healthy, one of them only in a small way, drinking tea.

According to a study, drinking tea can help a person in stabilizing blood pressure. Experts say the benefits of tea are mostly caused by the flavonoids, the antioxidant ingredients that fight cardiovascular disease.

In response to this study, Dr. Tim Bond of the Tea Advisory Panel (TAP) noted that high blood pressure is a risk factor for cardiovascular mortality and number. Typically, blood pressure levels comparable to the risk, but now the variability of blood pressure is now also thought to contribute to the risk.

"Black tea and flavonoid element of the associated ability to lower blood pressure and heart health," said Dr Tim Bond, as reported Femalefirst.

He added that the latest research is different, as it assesses the effect of black tea on blood pressure variability compared with the level of blood pressure. This study is a 6-month trial, in which 111 men and women consume three cups of black tea and drinking beverages containing caffeine as a comparison.

"The level of variation in blood pressure were assessed at three time points, ie on days 1 and 3, as well as the current 6 months. At this time, the consumption of black tea resulted in lower levels of blood pressure variability in the evenings. The effect was seen on day 1, and continued for six months, "said Dr. Blond team

He added, given that the caffeine content of two drinks is the same, an increase in the variability of blood pressure will emerge as a result of a component of black tea, apart from the same womb of caffeine. This possibility is a flavonoid that has been linked to heart health in previous research.

"Recent research shows that the content of flavonoids in black tea has many health benefits, especially heart health. Simply by drinking four or more cups of tea a day, you can benefit from it, "
