Tea Benefits: Even two cups of black tea a day can reduce the risk of death. But drink tea without milk and sugar.
Are you a ‘T Person’? Love to eat more tea? There is good news for you. There is nothing special or special about the health benefits of tea. But a new study claims that drinking more tea may lower your risk of death. Tea is a drink that is consumed by people around the world. This drink is also the most popular in India. Besides, different types of tea are available in the world market and they have several health benefits. But newly published research is a little different.
A study was recently conducted at the UK’s National Cancer Institute on black tea. Along with the benefits of tea, the risk of death is also seen there. An analysis of that data showed that those who drank two to three cups of liqueur tea a day had a 9 percent and 13 percent lower risk of death, respectively, than those who did not drink tea regularly. That is, if you drink two cups of black tea a day, the risk of death can be reduced.
Most of the previous studies revolved around green tea. All those studies show the benefits of green tea. But this research focusing on black tea has shifted the focus away from the studies done on green tea. The National Cancer Institute is part of the National Institutes of Health. The research was done by the researchers there.
The study was conducted among 4,98,043 men and women, aged 40 to 60 years. 89 percent of people here drank black tea. Participants were followed for approximately 11 years. It was then that the UK’s National Health Service linked database showed the death data.
According to the NIH, “Researchers found that those who drank two or more cups of tea per day had a 9 to 13 percent lower risk of death than those who did not drink tea daily. Apart from the risk of death, they also have a relatively low risk of cardiovascular disease, ischemic heart disease and stroke.”
A study published in the journal Annals of Internal Medicine noted that tea is very popular around the world. But the risk of death is relatively low in countries where black tea or liqueur tea consumption is high. The NIH notes that the temperature of the tea and the addition of milk and sugar to the tea affect the caffeine content of the tea and the metabolic rate. But only if you can drink tea without milk and sugar it will be beneficial.
