  • A 2012 study published in Preventive Medicine found that  drinking three cups of black tea per day for 12 weeks led to significant  reductions in blood sugar levels and triglycerides, an increase in HDL  cholesterol levels, and increased blood levels of antioxidants, which can  protect against oxidative stress and inflammation. All heart healthy happy news!
  • A July  2012 issue Pharmacological Reports reveals that the powerful antioxidants in green tea, particularly EGCG, may help prevent atherosclerosis, specifically  coronary artery disease, because of their anti-inflammatory effects on plaque  buildup in the bloodstream and arterial walls, which can lead to heart disease  and stroke.
  • In addition to lowering inflammation in the bloodstream and  reducing LDL cholesterol, tea protects LDL particles from becoming oxidized,  which causes plaque buildup in the arteries and can lead to atherosclerosis,  according to Janet Bond Brill, PhD, RD, LDN, CSSD, an expert on food and  fitness for heart health and the author of several books.
