Black tea may promote healthy arteries and lower the risk of a heart attack or stroke, says a small study released Monday at the American Heart Association meeting. Researchers at the Boston University School of Medicine studied 50 men and women with coronary artery disease with the aim to find out why prior studied have shown that tea seems beneficial to the heart. In an eight-week study of men and women who drank four cups of either tea or water a day for four weeks and vice versa, the results found that tea relaxes and dilates arteries, increasing blood flow to the heart.
