What are the biggest benefits of Black Tea?

Black Tea is made from Camellia Sinensis and comes from the Indian state of Assam as well as Sri Lanka. The way these two tea blends are withered, heated, rolled, oxidised, and dried differs. Black tea, unlike other teas, has been oxidised. This means that the tea leaves are exposed to air after being picked. Because of the oxygen, the leaves turn black or brown.

What is Black Tea?

Besides water, black tea is the other most consumed beverage in the world. It originates from the Camellia sinensis and is commonly blended with plants like chai or Earl Grey to bring different flavours. It has higher caffeine levels than other beverages but lower caffeine levels than coffee. Black tea has high levels of antioxidants which may offer several benefits such as:

1. It has antioxidant properties

The antioxidant property is common for offering several health benefits. Infusions of the tea can assist in removing free radicals and reduce cell damage in your body. Ultimately, it may help reduce the chances of chronic disease and improve one’s general health.

2. It may boosts your heart health

Black tea has flavonoids which, when consumed regularly, will assist in reducing several risk factors for heart illness, such as high cholesterol, obesity, high blood pressure, and elevated triglyceride levels. In every cup you take, there is a reduced risk of 1.5% of death from all causes, 2% from heart attack and cardiovascular diseases, 4% from stroke, and 4% from death resulting from heart disease.

3. It may lower bad LDL cholesterol

A body has two lipoproteins, LDL (low-intensity lipoprotein) and HDL (high-intensity lipoprotein). LDL is a bad lipoprotein because it moves cholesterol throughout the body. At the same time, HDL transports cholesterol to the liver from the cells to remove them from the bloodstream. The high content of LDL may cause waxy deposits known as plagues which may result in a stroke or heart failure. Consuming black tea has been proven to help reduce LDL cholesterol.

4. It assists in reducing blood pressure

High blood pressure increases the risk of stroke, heart attack, vision loss, and heart and kidney failure. Black infusion regularly helps lower diastolic and systolic blood pressure in people with hypertension. Therefore, consuming the beverage and incorporating better lifestyle modifications such as stress management strategies will help benefit people living with high blood pressure.

5. May reduce cancer risks

Studies from the NCI (National Cancer Institute) suggest that black tea has polyphenols which can reduce the risk of the tumour growing in a person’s body.

Conclusion

Consuming black tea is a great choice if you seek a non-sweetened beverage with low calories and less caffeine than energy drinks and coffee. Infusion of the beverage offers several health benefits, such as those mentioned above, and better yet, it is easy to make and is available at many stores and online at embreze.com.
