The findings are consistent with previous bodies of research which have established that green tea consumption causes a significant reduction in systolic blood pressure and total LDL cholesterol.
While the findings of the study were promising, the researchers did not investigate exactly which aspects of green tea delivered the results.
Other health bodies, however, have offered theories on the matter.
Harvard Health, for instance, explains that the main health-promoting substances found in tea are polyphenols, particularly catechins and epicatechins.
