Green tea and cholesterol

Green tea improves blood lipid levels NutraIngredients USA 11/27/06 "Coimbra and her colleagues report that at the end of the intervention period significant beneficial improvements were observed in the lipid profile of the volunteers. A reduction in LDL-cholesterol was observed in 90 per cent of the subjects (average decrease of 8.9 per cent from baseline), and an increase in HDL-cholesterol was observed in 69 per cent of the subjects (average increase of 4 per cent from baseline)...The ratio of total cholesterol to HDL cholesterol, reported to be the most specific lipid risk factor for CVD, decreased by six per cent after four weeks of tea drinking."

More evidence of the value of green tea. Of course white tea has even more health value and actually tastes good. Tea tip of the day - combine any variety of white tea with rooibos tea for an exceptional flavor. First and probably my last tea tip.
