Pure Ceylon teas come from Sri Lanka and are world renowned for their taste and aroma. Ceylon tea is a type of black tea and therefore has the same health benefits.

  • Lowers the risk of cancer due to high levels of antioxidants. These antioxidants prevent the oxidation that damages DNA and turns normal cells cancerous
  • When combined with a diet high in soy like that of the Chinese black tea has been found to inhibit angiogenesis a process in which cancerous tumours grow blood vessels to stay alive
  • Antioxidants such as flavonoids reduce cholesterol that clogs up your blood vessels and prevents blood from reaching the heart
  • Flavonoids are linked with the reduction of low-density lipoproteins (LDL) the “bad” cholesterol in the blood
  • Studies show that 150 milligrams of flavonoids – the amount in an average cup of tea – produced immediate health effects on the heart while 500 milligrams – or roughly three-and-a-half cups of tea – produced a more sustained effect.
  • Studies show that heart patients who drink four cups of black tea a day for a month have greatly improved blood circulation.
