New Study Shows Black Tea Lowers Blood Pressure

Black Tea May Lower Blood Pressure

    A study took place in Australia using two groups of people; ones who were given black tea to drink, and the other one, a placebo group.
    According to the Archives of Internal Medicine, researchers in Australia studied the results of 95 men and women who participated in this experiment, which took six months to complete.
    When the experiment was finished, the group that drank black tea every day showed a lower number in their blood pressure than when the experiment began. Their numbers went down by about three points. This group drank three cups of black tea a day during the phase of the experiment. Flavonoids in tea may also help with improving the blood vessels' tone.
