Here is just one more reason to replace your unhealthy and sugar-laden beverages. A study recently published in the Archives of Internal Medicine has shown that black tea not only sparks no increase in blood pressure for people with hypertension, but it may actually have the ability to lower it.
Researchers who conducted the study examined the impact of three cups of black tea a day over a six month period. Study conductors from the University of Rochester Medical Center found that the black tea consumption caused a decrease in 2 to 3 millimeters of blood pressure ‘points’. This was the case for both systolic blood pressure as well as diastolic blood pressure.
