Black tea Good for Diabetes: Research

New Delhi, Mon, 04 Feb 2013 NI Wire

A new research carried out by Scientists of France, Britain and Switzerland has proved that people who drink black tea are less likely to develop Type 2 diabetes.

The research was carried out in 50 countries of the world.

The research also showed that people who drank the most black tea also suffered the lowest levels of the metabolic syndrome. The study also found that high tea consumption was related to lower levels of obesity.

Ariel Beresniak, one of the scientist and co-author said, "We observed that, among the five health indicators, only the 'prevalence of diabetes' indicator appeared to have a strong statistical relationship with black tea consumption".

Scientists believe that the fermentation process, which turns green tea black, could also cause the production of complex health-giving flavonoids.

They also analyzed the consumption of black tea and the prevalence of various diseases, including Type 2 diabetes.

The study also found that Ireland is the country where consumption of Black tea is the most, with each person consuming 2 kg each a year.

Britain and Turkey are next on the list. These countries have lower levels of diabetes than other countries where consumption was low like Brazil, Morocco and Mexico

This study had been published in the Thursday's issue of British Medical Journal.
