Green Tea Benefit #2: Healthy Heart

Drinking green tea has been linked to a rise in cardiovascular and metabolic health. Green tea has been found to increase the excretion of triglycerides and cholesterol in the body to oppose to fat being stored. This reduces risk of forming plaques in the arteries since plaques are made up of cholesterol and triglycerides. Over time plaques can build up in the arteries slowing blood flow to those areas. If a cholesterol plaque ruptures, a sudden blood clot forms over the rupture and causes a heart attack or stroke. In a meta-analysis study, involving 194,965 individuals, subjects that consumed more then 3 cups of green tea were 21% less likely at risk of a stroke then the subjects that consumed less than 1 cup a day 1.
