TIME FOR TEA…

Drinking three cups of tea a day can help ward off heart disease and stroke according to an Australian study which found that drinking either ordinary tea or green tea can reduce the risk of heart disease by 11%.

This is thought to be due to the high levels of flavonoids in tea, which increase the production of nitric oxide gas in the blood. This compound widens blood vessels and reduces blood pressure.

One good thing is that adding milk to your tea does not reduce the health benefits.
