This Tea Can STOP a Heart Attack
Where have all the tea kettles gone?
Remember the good ol’ days? You’d go to visit a friend, and they’d put on a kettle of tea.
I can’t even tell you the last time I saw a tea kettle.
Americans are drinking a lot less tea these days – and we’re all paying the price.
Because scientists have just discovered that one tea has the power to prevent Alzheimer’s and even STOP heart attacks.
If you’re not already drinking this miracle tea, you’ll want to start… FAST.
EGCG – short for epigallocatechin-3-gallate – is a compound found in green tea.
And scientists have found that EGCG can dissolve the protein plaques in blood vessels that can cause heart attacks.
You see, we’ve known for ages that EGCG can reduce the amyloid proteins in the brain that lead to Alzheimer’s disease.
But proteins known as apoA-1 are in our blood vessels, too. And when they build up, they can make you a sitting duck for a heart attack or stroke.
But new research from the University of Leeds and Lancaster University in England found that EGCG can bind to and break down apoA-1, making it soluble.
That means less gunk in your blood vessels – and lower heart attack and stroke risk for you.
In addition to EGCG, green tea is also rich in polyphenols, manganese, selenium, chromium, zinc, and vitamins A, C, D, and E.
And regular green tea consumption has been linked to a lower risk of cancers like those of the skin, colon, prostate, and breast.
But if you or a loved one is looking to enjoy the health benefits of green tea, experts recommend the matcha variety which has ten times the antioxidants of regular green tea.
Be sure to get pure, organic powder and take the time to properly make the tea.
You can also add matcha supplements to your daily routine.
