More and more scientists are recognizing the value and critical need to protect the walls of the arteries against LDL (low density lipoprotein) inflammation and oxidation. Such issues (particularly inflammation) correlates HIGHLY with major diseases such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and various other degenerative problems.
Now for the good news. Research continues to show that a unique extract that is found in black tea – Theaflavins – have multiple, positive applications for the health of the arteries and for overall well being.
Theaflavins have been shown in human studies to protect against such LDL oxidation and very favorably against endothelial function; that is, it helps to maintain healthy circulation.
And there is more. Black tea extract possess strong antioxidants which help to combat oxidative damage to the cells and the tissues, protecting them against free radicals.
Finally, Theaflavins have been found to regulate THE key inflammatory mediators (substances that help get rid of inflammation or excess heat) in the body, thus maintaining the health of the cell.
Bottom line. . . .The more you can rid the body of inflammation, the healthier you will become.
