You could live longer if you drink two cups of tea per day!

A five-year study – conducted by researchers from University of Western Australia – has found that drinking tea may increase your lifespan.

Over 1,050 women – aged in their 70s and 80s – were asked to complete a questionnaire about their diets.

Researchers examined the link between flavonoid intake and women’s risk of death from any cause over the next five years.

Flavonoids are found in foods such as tea, chocolate, fruit, vegetables and red wine.

Conclusion

88% of the women were still alive after the study and researchers established that those who drank two cups of tea per day were 40% more likely to live longer.

“Using the most comprehensive flavonoid databases, we provide evidence that high consumption of flavonoids is associated with reduced risk of mortality in older women.”

“The benefits of flavonoids may extend to the etiology of cancer and cardiovascular disease.” The study – which was published in the Journal of Clinical Nutrition – concluded.
