White tea prevents tooth decay

Studies have found that white tea could actually better for you than all of its multi-coloured counterparts.

Until recently it was believed that green tea, which is full of polyphenols, the antioxidant that helps fight and kill cancer-causing cells, was the ultimate in healthy tea drinking. Yet new reports show that leaving tea leaves so close to their natural state means that white tea contains even more of these powerful antioxidants than any other type of tea, including green tea.

A 2004 study at Pace University concluded that white tea can help your body’s immune system fight off viruses and dangerous infection-causing bacteria. In addition to this, the study found that white tea is also very good at preventing the growth of dental plaque, and thus tooth decay, thanks to being naturally rich in fluoride.

As a natural blood thinner, white tea is also reputed to improve blood pressure, lowering cholesterol, and improve artery function, as well as increasing bone density and protecting the skin.
