Washington – A new research has showed that tea could help lose weight, improve heart health and slow prostate cancer’s progression.

The December 2013 issue of the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition features 12 new articles about the relationship between tea and human health.

Highlights of some of the compelling reports published through the AJCN include the following five papers:

Tea leaf polyphenols may promote weight loss

Tea polyphenols and the caffeine content in tea increase energy expenditure and fat oxidation, providing benefits for achieving and maintaining an ideal body weight.

Tea may reduce risk for some cancers

Green tea polyphenols may play a role in arresting the progression of certain cancers. For example, in a double-blind, placebo-controlled study, supplementation with 600 mg/d green tea catechins reduced the progression of prostate cancer.

Tea Catechins are Cardioprotective

Numerous studies suggest tea supports heart health and healthy blood pressure, and appears to be associated with a reduced risk of cardiovascular disease, including stroke and heart attack.

Tea Flavonoids Improve Bone Strength and Quality

Osteoporosis is a major public health concern but new research suggests that polyphenols in green tea may help improve bone quality and strength through many proposed mechanisms.

Tea Improves Mood, Alertness and Problem Solving

Results from new research published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that drinking tea improved attention and allowed individuals to be more focused on the task at hand.
All the studies have been published in American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
