Polyphenols are plant-derived compounds that seem to be quite good for us.
Polyphenols come in several variants, among them are Catechins, Theaflavins, and Tannins. Past and current research has explored the effect of consuming polyphenols from tea on cancer, heart disease, blood pressure, and a range of other issues.
Again, we can’t tell you that tea is a magic elixir that will make you strong enough to take a cannonball to the gut (wink wink), but we can share unbiased research with you without making the claims.
Search #TeaSearch (like tea-research, get it?) on Twitter or our Journal for summaries of high-quality scientific studies on the health benefits of tea.
