Does Tea Lower Blood Pressure?

Dr John La Puma

Drinking 4 ounces (0.5 cup) of green or oolong tea per day (with no milk or sugar) lowered the risk of high blood pressure by almost 50% in a new study of over 2400 Chinese men and women. Drinking more than 20 ounces (2.5 cups) daily was even better.

Most of these tea drinkers had other risk factors for high blood pressure–they were more obese, they smoked more, drank more alcohol, ate fewer vegetables and had more frequent high sodium intake. And still tea helped!

Polyphenolic flavonoids–the vitamin-like compounds in tea–may be responsible. Read the whole tea study, from Taiwan, in the Archives of Internal Medicine and below. Try Dr. La Puma’s recipes for lowering blood pressure!.
