Drink tea 'to stave off heart disease'

London
Drinking tea is claimed to be as good as downing plenty of water and have a number of health benefits. Now, add one more to the list - sipping three cups of the hot beverage daily can stave off heart disease.

In fact, the link between coronary heart disease and tea has been the subject of a large number of studies. Now, a leading dietitian has claimed that drinking three cups of tea a day can ward off heart attacks, the' Daily Mail' reported.

Dr Carrie Ruxton, a member of the Tea Advisory Panel, analysed some of the earlier studies, which highlighted the effectiveness of naturally occurring compounds flavonoids in combating heart attacks.

One Finnish study found men who drank more than two cups of tea a day had a 21 per cent reduced chance of stroke. French research showed that women who drank more than three cups a day had a 32 per cent lower risk of blocked arteries.

Dr Ruxton said the research showed at least three cups of tea a day can lower the risk of a heart attack by up to 70 per cent."We are not sure of the exact mechanism, but it is thought that tea flavonoids could be involved in controlling inflammation, reducing thrombosis, promoting blood vessel function and helping to limit furring up of the arteries."

The studies found tea may be"a useful addition to an anti-cancer diet", she said adding further research is needed.[Image: -tea-pot-.jpg]

Tea may be a national favourite but it also has health benefits thanks to its high flavonoid content. My research shows there is a growing amount of evidence which indicates tea can play a role in helping to combat cardio- vascular problems such as heart disease and stroke.

" This area of research is very exciting for the future. We also found solid evidence of tea helping to boost cognitive function and reduce stress, probably related to tea's modest caffeine content," Dr Ruxton said.
