Is Japanese tea suitable for preventing high blood pressure?
Hypertension is classified as an adult disease, and it is said that it is especially common among Japanese people who ingest a large amount of salt from their diet. This article introduces why Japanese tea is said to be good for preventing high blood pressure.
Why Japanese tea is good for preventing hypertension
There are all kinds of Japanese teas, but if you want to take it to prevent high blood pressure, green tea is recommended. This is because the ingredients contained in green tea are thought to be useful in preventing high blood pressure.
Let's take a look at the relationship between the ingredients contained in green tea and high blood pressure.
When you drink strong green tea, do you ever feel that it is a little bitter? Actually, this bitterness is due to the catechins contained in green tea.
Catechins have an antioxidant effect and are said to help prevent arteriosclerosis by removing active oxygen, which in turn is said to help prevent high blood pressure.
This is because when arteriosclerosis occurs, the flow of blood becomes slow, which increases the risk of blood pressure rising, and catechins are said to be able to prevent this from happening.
In other words, people who consume green tea every day are less likely to develop high blood pressure than those who do not.

Here are some tips on how to get the best catechins from green tea and what to keep in mind when drinking green tea.
