What are the benefits of black tea?

Black tea is an oxidized version of green tea that gives a new compound called theaflavin. This is a powerful phytonutrient that gives black tea a red tint.

Benefits

It is important to note that you won’t see the following benefits in an unhealthy diet. Theaflavin can’t make up for poor diet choices. However, if you are on a Healthy Keto® diet, black tea can help support your body and promote these health benefits:

  • Regulates glucose

  • Lowers cholesterol

  • Has antiviral properties

  • Has antibacterial properties

  • Helps prevent cavities

  • Helps decrease the risk of osteoporosis

  • Helps decrease the risk of metabolic syndrome

  • Helps reduce gum disease

  • Has anticancer properties

  • Supports healthy blood pressure levels

  • Lowers the risk of cardiovascular disease

  • Lowers the risk of stroke

  • Lemon and tea

If you preserve the vitamin C by having your lemon in a cold glass of tea, the vitamin C and citric acid can help you retain a certain phytonutrient in the tea, catechin, by 5x. This phytonutrient is responsible for a number of health benefits.

Where to get it

You can get it at any grocery store.
