3 cups of black tea a day, keeps diabetes away

    by -

    Tea lovers, here’s another reason to drink up.

    Scientists have found that the antioxidants in black tea can help to reduce glucose, thus lowering the risk of type 2 diabetes. In order to reap the glucose-lowering benefit, you’ll have to up to drink 3 cups a day — with or without milk.

    In the studies, US and Japanese scientists investigated extracts from black tea in the laboratory. They discovered the action of natural ingredients in black tea could lead to reductions in blood sugar.

    High in caffeine to help you stay alert, black tea is also known for other health benefits such as promoting healthy teeth and bones, lowering cholesterol and preventing the risks of certain types of cancer. The process of making black tea involves oxidising and fermenting the tea leaves, which give black tea its dark colour and robust flavour.
