Health Benefits

Treebird Tea cofounder James Hill, MD, a physician specializing in internal medicine and radiology, describes health benefits of Madura teas.

"We all want to live in optimum health.  Madura teas can be healthy for you in many ways, including the following."

  1. Heart health: Drinking tea may help prevent cardiovascular disease and heart attacks. [1], [2], [3], [4]
  2. Cancer prevention: Although the research is not yet definitive, it appears tea may lower the risk of many cancers, [5] including those of the colon and rectum, [6] breast, [7] skin, lung, [8] liver, [9] esophagus, stomach, pancreas, small intestine, ovary, [10] oral cavity, [11] and prostate. [12]
  3. Obesity: Hot tea intake is associated with less obesity (lower BMI, or body mass index), decreased C-reactive protein (a marker of inflammation) in men and women, and reduced triglycerides in women. [13] It’s not yet clear if this association is causal, however, though it could be.
  4. Diabetes: Long-term consumption of green tea catechins (a type of antioxidants) could be beneficial against high-fat diet-induced obesity and type 2 diabetes. [14]
  5. Alzheimer’s disease: Polyphenols in green tea may help maintain the hippocampus, a part of the brain that regulates learning and memory, possibly helping people avoid Alzheimer’s disease. [15]
  6. Parkinson’s disease: Tea drinking is associated with, and might cause, a lower risk of Parkinson’s disease. [16]
  7. Sun damage: The polyphenols (antioxidants) in green tea can help protect your skin from ultraviolet damage from the sun, including sunburn and skin aging like wrinkling. [17]
  8. Bone health: Green tea improves bone mineral density, at least in laboratory animals, helping prevent osteoporosis. [18]
  9. Endurance: Cathechins, a type of antioxidant in green tea, increase the body’s use of fat as fuel, helping muscle endurance during exercise. [19]
  10. Hydration: Tea replenishes water in your body as well as water does, despite caffeine’s tendency to dehydrate. [20], [21]
  11. Smoking damage: Regularly drinking green tea appears to protect smokers from oxidative damage to DNA and could reduce cancer risk or other diseases caused by free radicals associated with smoking. [22]
