In a new study published in the journal, Cellular Physiology, and Biochemistry, a team of researchers at the University of California, Irvine posit that compounds found in green and black tea dramatically contribute to cardiovascular health.
These results were so strong in fact, the researchers are confident that habitual tea consumption could yield comparable effects as antihypertensive treatments (drugs meant to address hypertension).
In addition to black and green tea’s antihypertensive benefits, those who habitually consume them enjoy decreased risk for heart disease, certain forms of cancer, high cholesterol, gut health, blood pressure, and stroke.
It should be noted that the addition of milk seemed to obstruct the advantageous effects...
...the researchers concluded that heating green tea to 35 degrees Celsius (95 Fahrenheit) augments its chemical makeup. This alteration actually greatly improves green tea’s role in disease prevention...
Though considering human body temperature is about 37 degrees Celsius (98.6 Fahrenheit), KCNQ5 will likely be activated in the blood vessels regardless of whether your tea is consumed iced or hot.
