Chinese Tea Found To Lower Cholesterol

Researchers have found a type of Chinese tea to be effective in lowering cholesterol levels in lab mice, reports the China Post.
A conductor of the study, Dr. Sun Lu-hsi of National Taiwan University (NTU) says she and a team of researchers found that when lab mice were put on a special diet that contained Pu'erh tea, a special bacteria-fermented Chinese tea, their cholesterol levels all showed a significant drop.

Sun said even though her study on this particular Chinese tea has shown encouraging results on lab mice, she has yet to conduct a similar research on human beings to know whether it would yield the same effect.

Nevertheless, the NTU researcher stressed that, unlike adverse effects often associated with new drugs undergoing clinical trials, constant and moderate drinking could only promote overall health without any possible side effects.
