10. Reduce Stroke and Heart Attack Risk
Studies have proved that people who drink tea regularly have a lower risk of stroke and heart attack as compared to people who don’t. Stroke and heart attack are caused by the formation of blood clots in arteries which may be a result of cholesterol building up. Drinking tea has been found to keep the arteries clog-free and smooth thereby protecting against stroke and heart attack. Black tea was studied to be rich in antioxidants, thearubigins and theaflavins, which are linked to a lower cholesterol level in the body.
