For disease-fighting antioxidants, tea is hard to beat. Black tea and green tea have the most health-boosting effects, but green tea seems to be especially beneficial.

Some research suggests that these teas may help:

  • Lower cholesterol when you eat a heart-healthy diet
  • Improve blood vessel and heart health
  • Reduce damage to DNA caused by smoking
  • Reduce the risk of some cancers

Who knows, there may be more positive effects from drinking tea!
