Regular tea drinkers have health benefits over those who drink tea less frequently.

A study shows which type of tea has a particularly large effect.

A healthy diet can have a positive effect on aging.

For example, intermittent fasting helps slow the aging process by allowing cells to regenerate during a 16-hour meal break.

However, it is of course not only important how we eat, but also what food and drinks we consume.

While some coffee habits tend to accelerate aging, regular tea drinking leads to a healthier and longer life.

At the same time, tea can reduce the risk of stroke and heart attack, as a scientific study shows.

Stroke: Regular tea consumption is associated with a lower risk of cardiovascular disease

Tea leaves contain so-called polyphenols.

These active ingredients can reduce inflammation in the body.

For their study, published in the

European Journal of Preventive Cardiology

, researchers examined 100,902 people in China over a seven-year period, collecting data using questionnaires and medical tests.

The medical histories of the participants did not include strokes, heart attacks or cancer.

In addition, the subjects were divided into two groups: tea drinkers who drank tea regularly (at least three times a week) and irregular tea drinkers who drank it less frequently.

The results showed that regular tea drinkers enjoyed significant health benefits over those who drink tea significantly less frequently.

For example, the former showed a lower risk of having a heart attack or stroke.

The death rate in the group of regular tea drinkers was also lower.

They differed from the control group as follows:

  • Incident heart disease and stroke (20% lower probability)

  • Dying of heart attack or stroke (22% less likely)

  • Death rate (15% lower)

According to the researchers, drinking tea regularly prevents diseases and prolongs life at the same time.

For example, a 50-year-old person who drinks tea regularly could suffer a stroke or develop heart disease almost 1.5 years later, scientists estimate.

In addition, she could have a 1.26 year longer life expectancy than an infrequent tea drinker.

Stroke: The main way to reduce risk is with green tea

As the study also found, the type of tea also plays a role in the positive effects on health.

This is because people who drank green tea had more health benefits than those who drank black tea.

Tea leaves contain active compounds called polyphenols, which act as antioxidants in the body and also reduce inflammation.

However, since black tea is fermented, these health-promoting compounds may be reduced.

“Regular tea consumption is associated with a reduced risk of cardiovascular disease and various causes of death.

The positive effects on health are particularly evident in green tea and in people who drink tea regularly over a long period of time," summarizes first author Dr.

Xinyan Wang of the Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences in Beijing told

BBC Science Focus Magazine

together.

Due to different tea drinking habits, however, it is questionable whether the results can also be transferred to other countries.

For example, in the western world, black tea is more popular and is often drunk with milk and sugar.

In addition, according to the researchers, the health effects could be influenced by the consumption of other flavonoid-rich foods or drinks such as coffee.
