A Cup of Tea is Good for Your Heart

We all know that a freshly-steeped cuppa can warm your heart and soul, but this recent study proves that black tea is literally good for your heart! Drinking black tea can help lower risk factors for heart disease, heart attack and stroke. From the article:
"In the study, published in the journal Preventive Medicine, drinking three cups of tea for 12 weeks (with no milk or sugar) led to highly significant reduction in blood sugar levels and triglycerides, which are unhealthy fats. Triglyceride levels fell by a whopping 39 percent in males and 29 percent in females.

In addition, drinking tea led to an increase in levels of HDL cholesterol, long considered to be the ‘good’ type of cholesterol."
