Are words of the Doctor Yukihiko Momiyama, main author of the study medical of the College doctor of Defense national, in the city Japanese of Saitama.

Words that we have extracted from an article published by the newspaper El Mundo and issued by the news agency Reuters, which explains the reasons for the start of a scientific investigation in which you attempted to clarify why the number of people who suffer from this type of mishaps, compared with episodes occurring in people of the West is less frequent in Japan.

And is that it is not yet known the exact cause of why green tea promotes cardiovascular health, when it contains caffeine (that Yes, in rather less quantity than in coffee), that scientists suspect what would be the amount of flavonoids containing this natural beverage that would benefit this section of human health. And is that if by something is characterized them flavonoids, is by the made of that «fight the oxidation that damages them cells of the heart, through some substances so-called radical free», explained in the article.

In fact, as is clear from the notes issued by Reuters, several studies have shown that people who eat foods containing flavonoids (such as some fruits, vegetables and red wine), are less likely to die from cardiovascular disease, also relate this consumption with lower risk, as we said before, suffering a heart attack.

Translated into figures and returning to the case of the study of the Japanese doctor, he deduced that analyzed people and that they consumed a cup of green tea a day, 42% of them were less likely to suffer an episode of heart attack, compared to those not taking it. And all this taking into account that many of the people subjected to this study had risk factors associated with his person, as for example, hypertension, high cholesterol or diabetes.

Therefore, they allude to a scientific study published in the journal Circulation, which ensures that people who consumed green tea have one 44% less likely to suffer myocardial infarction, «regardless of age, gender or lifestyle that have».

Teas that are known, are committed by green tea «because the fermentation of other teas destroys substances active. Therefore, green tea (less proofing) enjoys the best therapeutic properties in this regard».

On the other hand, added, «it seems advisable to take between one and two cups of tea daily. You can provide us an additional benefit and would have no harmful effects. However, in case of taking drugs, not is advised make it, since the tea can interfere in its absorption. « for them people that take anticoagulant, the tea could reduce its effect, by which not is recommended». Words of the doctor Ana Maria Ramos López, author of the article in which we have based and published by the Spanish Heart Foundation.
