Green tea: the superfood that slashes cholesterol
A recent study published in the Journal of the American Heart Association points to green tea’s ability to keep our cholesterol under control as well.
Chinese researchers followed 80,182 men and women for six years to determine if drinking green tea benefited HDL cholesterol levels. The participants were all 49 years of age or older.
After accounting for other lifestyle factors such as exercise, diet, drinking and smoking, researchers concluded that drinking green tea slowed down the natural decrease in HDL cholesterol levels, especially in people who drank tea more often.
