Recent studies show that drinking tea could be the secret to longer life

Forget about expensive pills and exotic potions. Drinking at least a cup of tea a day could let you live longer.

The Australian researchers analyzed the health records of more than 1000 women aged 75 and above.

According to the result of the tudy, elderly women who drink atleast a cup of tea a day is 40 percent less likely to die during the 5 years study period compared to other females of the same age.

Tea contains flavonoids which is believed to protect to protect us from having heart disease and cancer.

Flavonoids are one of the largest nutrient families known to scientists. They are best known for their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory health benefits as well as the support of the cardiovascular and nervous systems. Fruits and vegetables, tea, coffee and cocoa are rich natural sources of flavonoids.

The Daily Mail shared detailed information about their diet, including the amount of tea and coffee drunk, was used to work out what level of flavonoids they were consuming.

Some 88 per cent of the women were still alive by the end of the study – and those with the most flavonoids in their diet were particularly likely to have survived.

Catherine Hood, of the industry-funded Tea Advisory Panel, said: "Tea is a major source of flavonoid compounds in the diet."

"Older women at present drink just over two cups of tea daily on average but one in five don’t drink any tea and could benefit their health by doing so." Other recent research found that tea drinkers are less likely to break a hip than people who never touch the stuff found.

Maybe it is time for coffee drinkers to switch gears. Tea could be a better coffee alternative.
