Yunnan Tea Health Benefits

International research has suggested that regular tea drinking can slow down certain cancers and lower the risk of cardiovascular disease. That's consistent with the lower risk of diabetes, which contributes to heart disease and stroke. Most reports showing a positive link with cancer prevention appear from studies using younger or less oxidised tea. It is important to know however that this is due to the presence of naturally occurring microorganisms in the gut (microbial flora or microbiota) that influences the absorption of these antioxidants. Research is ongoing to determine the exact health benefits of tea drinking, but it is suggested thus far that tea benefits the body’s immune function, gut function, normalises blood pressure, and reduces cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk, diabetes and dental decay.
