It is a well-known fact that tea drinkers have a lower risk of getting skin cancer. Moreover, the polyphenolic compound in Oolong tea promotes apoptosis in case of cancerous cell growth in the stomach. This polyphenolic extract also acts as a chemo-preventive instrument against the development of other cancers. The compounds stifle the activation of carcinogenic cells, prevent the formation of N-nitroso compounds and trap genotoxic agents before they can become effective.
Health benefits of Oolong tea include the reduction of chronic health conditions such as heart diseases, inflammatory disorders, and high cholesterol levels while providing vital antioxidants, promoting superior bone structure, robust skin, and good dental health. Oolong tea is fragrant with a fruity flavour and a pleasant aroma. Despite its caffeine content, it is still a relaxing drink.
