Stress & Heart Attack

Stress & Heart Attack

The heart is the most vulnerable organ in the body and needs looking after for a long and healthy life. Exercise and diet are essential and good healthy natural tea really can help:

A detailed study conducted at the Osaka Institute for Health Care Science, found that the natural polyphenols in Oolong tea can reduce stress levels by 10 to 18 %.

Hypertension can be a serious problem leading to heart issues and a study at the National Cheng Kung University of Taiwan found that habitual moderate strength green or oolong tea consumption, 120 mL/d or more for 1 year significantly reduces the risk of developing hypertension.

For years, research in populations has suggested that tea drinking is associated with improved cardiovascular health. Recently, both clinical and population studies have found similar positive cardiovascular effects among people who include tea as a part of their daily diets.

Research presented at the American College of Cardiology 50th Annual Scientific Session combined analysis of 13 published studies found an average estimated 11 percent lower rate of heart attacks among study participants who drank three or more cups of natural organic tea per day (no milk or sugar)

Another study by Harvard Medical School showed that drinking at least one cup of tea a day could cut the risk of heart attack by 44 percent. The beneficial results probably result from the powerful amounts of natural substances in tea known as flavonoids which make blood cells less prone to clotting. Flavonoids are also one of the most powerful antioxidants, or substances that offset the damaging effects of oxygen in the body. Flavonoids are one of the antioxidants to be found in Tea Cargo’s Puerh Tea.
