One 2013 study indicated that green tea might be helpful in lowering bad cholesterol, otherwise known as LDL cholesterol. It has also shown the potential of protecting LDL particles from oxidation via its dense antioxidant content. Those same studies have shown an overall lower risk of cardiovascular disease in those who drink green tea regularly.
There is also some proof that drinking green tea might help you live longer. A Japanese study showed that of the 40,530 Japanese adults studied, those who drank five or more cups of green tea per day were less likely to die of all causes — namely, heart disease — with the exception of cancer. This experiment was only run over the course of 11 years, mind you, but a lot can happen in 11 years. If 2020 has taught anybody anything, it’s that a lot can happen in a single year.
