Black Tea Need Not Take a Backseat to Green Tea

That’s right.  Black tea contains antioxidants too.  Granted there has been a lot in the press about the health benefits of green tea.  However, the reality is that the antioxidant EGCg found in green tea is also found in black tea, just not as much of it.  On the other hand, black tea is higher in theaflavins and thearubigens, compounds which have been found to be equally as effective antioxidants as EGCg.  Recent studies performed specifically on black tea have linked it to reducing LDL, the “bad” cholesterol, as well as reducing coronary heart disease by 50%.  Black tea has also been shown to reverse abnormal functioning of blood vessels, which contributes to stroke and heart attack, in as soon as one hour.

Bottom line…drink whatever you like…whether it’s black tea or green tea…
