Green tea shown to be a powerful defender against cardiovascular disease

by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, NaturalNews Editor

New research conducted at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center is demonstrating that green tea blocks the formation of plaque in the arteries -- atherosclerosis. Green tea has long been used as a powerful healing herb for heart disease patients, and this new research certainly backs that up. The green tea phytochemicals used in the study, however, did not reduce existing plaque in the arteries; they only prevented new plaque from forming.

The studies just keep on coming, and green tea increasingly looks like a multi-talented healing herb. Its anti-cancer properties are very well known in the naturopathic community, its ability to counter mental depression is widely recognized, and its efficacy as a weight loss herb is also soundly documented. Now, it appears, we can add cardiovascular disease to the long list of conditions that can be aided by the consumption of green tea.

By the way, you don't have to drink green tea in order to use it: just take it in capsule form. Green tea is readily available as a nutritional supplement.
