heart disease and diabetes, as well
as Parkinson's disease, based on
observational studies," she says.
The benefits of tea are similar
to coffee. Both black and green
teas also have plant chemicals
called flavonoids, which are
natural antioxidants and are
anti-inflammatory.
"In studies, tea drinkers have
been shown to have a lower risk of
stroke and heart attack," Basbaum
says. "We can attribute this in part
to those flavonoids."
For the highest concentration
of antioxidants, green tea is the
best option, because it is not as
processed as black tea. There is
also matcha, a highly concentrated
green tea that has become more
popular lately. *
