Drinking tea can help prevent type 2 diabetes.
This was revealed in a medical study in China.
A study by the Wuhan University of Science and Technology found that drinking at least 4 cups of tea per day can reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
According to research, drinking 4 or more cups of tea per day can reduce the risk of developing diabetes by 17% over the next 10 years.
The researchers said the results are encouraging because they indicate that drinking 4 cups of tea a day can reduce the risk of diseases like diabetes.
He said that this benefit of tea increases when people add milk to the tea.
Even earlier research reports in the past have discovered that milk or its products are helpful in preventing diabetes.
“We think the effect of tea in protecting against diabetes is enhanced by the addition of milk,” the researchers said.
The study analyzed 19 previous research reports on 1.1 million people on the link between tea and diabetes.
Research has discovered a link between drinking tea and reducing the risk of diabetes.
The study found that drinking one, two or three cups of tea a day reduced the risk of diabetes by 4%, while drinking four or more cups of tea reduced the risk by 17%.
Certain components in tea, such as polyphenols, may lower blood glucose levels, the researchers said.
They added that these results are observational and currently do not prove that drinking tea directly reduces the risk of type 2 diabetes, and more research is needed to prove this.
The results of this study were presented at the annual meeting of the European Association for the Study of Diabetes.
