Green Tea Lowers Cholesterol

Aug 31, 2011 5:00:00 PM

 A recent study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition (2011) concluded that  green tea decreased cholesterol in study participants.  Analyzing the findings of research papers published between 1967 and 2010, the report states that the consumption of green tea led to significant reductions in the levels of LDL ("bad" cholesterol).  Build-up of LDL (low-density lipoprotein) in blood vessels forms a hard plaque, the most common cause of cardiovascular disease.

 

In addition to fighting cholesterol, green tea contains numerous antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and polyphenols - and it tastes great, too!  Cheers!

On that note, I think I'll head to the kitchen and brew another cup of Sencha (which is on sale this month, btw).
