The results even suggest that this soothing tea may lower LDL or bad cholesteol and tricglyceride levels which are associated with heart disease and stroke.

“The limited data available on green tea support a potential association between green tea and beneficial properties in relationship to risk factors for cardiovascular disease,” says Kathy McManus, director of the department of nutrition at Brigham and Women’s Hospital.
