Milk is known to be very rich in minerals and nutritional substances and is recommended for people of all age. Around 2.5 dl of milk contains about 40% of daily need for iodine, tryptophan, calcium, vitamin B2 and B12. Milk also contains vitamin K, vitamin A, potassium, phosphorus and protein. Many of us love to add milk to tea or to drink tea and milk one after another. Latest research of scientist showed, however, that that is not the best combination if you drink tea to prevent cardiovascular diseases.
By adding boiled cow milk to tea we reduce its positive effect, that is, effect it has on the relaxing of blood vessels-according to latest results of research performed in “European cardiovascular journal”.
This research included 16 completely healthy women. They were tasked with drinking 470 milliliters of fresh black tea, then tea in combination with milk and boiled water in combination with milk. After drinking predetermined dose of tea, milk and water, testing was performed for each case separately. First, researchers measured blood pressure. After that they used ultrasound to determine to what extent their bronchial arteries relaxed and expanded, and after releasing the arm of pressure it was subjected during measuring of blood pressure.
Received results showed that BLACK TEA considerably improved circulation compared to water. it was determined that by adding boiled cow’s milk to tea considerably reduces positive effect of black tea on organism and blood vessels.
In order to confirm received results, laboratory experiments of similar type were conducted. In laboratory isolated blood vessels were used from rat specimens. Once again it showed that tea increased intensity and activity of enzyme that causes relaxation and expansion of blood vessels, but positive effects completely disappeared by adding cow’s milk.
Why milk reduces so much the effect of tea on blood vessels?
The answer to this lies in the fact that casein proteins, that are located in cow’s milk, are tied to useful substances in black tea and prevent them from performing their protective function in blood vessels.
Based on received results from listed research, the conclusion and advice imposes itself: in what possible way could you use positive effects of black tea in fighting against cardiovascular disease, enjoy tea as it is-without adding milk. If you are a real lover of “milk teas” try to substitute cow’s milk with soy milk, or rice milk and you will joint useful with tasteful. Based on everything seen a conclusion stands that if we want to get maximal benefit from these beverages, it is necessary to separate their consummation. Milk is best showed in situations when it is used right after workout or activity (in first 15 minutes) or before going to sleep, while green tea, because of caffeine content, is not recommended to be used so late, and is best in the morning as a substitute for coffee or in the afternoon when energy of the organism slightly diminishes. What you should avoid is drinking tea right before workout because it has a mild diuretic effect which can cause dehydration during physical activity.
