Tea Against Cholesterol

Studies in several countries have found all three kinds of tea to have some effect in reducing cholesterol in blood fats, though oolong seems to get the best results. Triglycerides and cholesterol are the two important fat substances in the bloodstream. These are essential for many things, but cholesterol also builds up on the walls of the arteries, causing them to narrow and restrict blood flow, a condition known as atherosclerosis.

As far back as 1967 British researchers noted that black tea reduced cholesterol. Around 1980, tests in Japan indicated that regular drinking of oolong tea reduces cholesterol and neutral fats, and gives some help in cases of hypertension and coronary heart disease.

A University of California survey found less atherosclerosis among tea drinkers than coffee drinkers. This is borne out by findings at the Fujian Institute. Rabbits that drank oolong tea while on a high cholesterol diet had smaller, more scattered, and less severe sclerosis spots on the aorta wall than the control group, which drank water.

Japanese researchers, testing with green tea, concluded that it is the catechinc that act to cut cholesterol, and increase the excretion of total lipids and cholesterol in the feces. Fibrinogen is a globulin in the blood which turns into fibrin to help in normal clotting. But in patients with abnormally high fibrogen levels, fibrin joins with arterial wallcholesterol to form plaque. One catechin isolated from green tea helps dissolve fibrin. Six years of treatment with a medicine made from oxidized tea polyphenols on 214 cardiovascular patients with a high fibrinogen level brought it back to normal for 81 percent of them.

    Tea Against Cholesterol

    All three kinds of tea seem to have some effect in reducing cholesterol according to studies from several countries, with oolong tea showing trhe best results overall. Triglycerides and cholesterol are essential fat substances found in the bloodstream which are necessary to many functions.But they also cause problems,fr instance,cholesterol causes atherosclerosis, a condition that occurs when cholesterol builds up on the arterial walls which narrows them and restricts blood flow.

    %The fact that black tea reduced cholesterol was first noted by British researchers in 1967.Japan testing done in 1980 found that the regular use of oolong tea could decrease cholesterol and neutral fats which could be therapeutic in treating coronary heart disease and hypertension.

    Atherosclerosis was found to be much less prevalent among tea drinkers than coffee drinkers according to a University of California survey. The Fujian Institute also supported these findings. Rabbits placed on high cholesterol diets that drank oolong tea showed sclerotic spots on the aorta wall that were smaller, less severe and more scattered than those of the water drinking control group.

    testing with green tea,Japanese researchers’ data indicated that the catechinc act to reduce cholesterol while they also increase total lipid and cholesterol excretion in the feces. to facilitate normal clotting,a globulin in the blood called Fibrinogen turns into fibrin.However when abnormally high fibrogen levels are present in the patients,plaque is formed when the fibrin joins with arterial wall cholesterol. It is possible to dissolve fibrin with the help of one green tea catechin.A medicine made of oxidized tea polyphenols that was administered to 214 cardiovascular patients with high fibrinogen levels for six years brought those levels back to normal for 81 percent of the patients in the study.

    This is much more than a paragraph. I guess you want a synopsis, not a paraphrase. Is that right?
