Green Tea High Blood Pressure Research:  Stopping The Silent Killer

green tea high blood pressure

Green tea high blood pressure research shows that using green tea before you get high blood pressure might save your life.

High blood pressure kills about 50,000 Americans every year, contributes to 75% of all strokes and heart disease, and costs an estimated 64 billion dollars every year (CDC, AHA).

It is called the silent killer because there are rarely symptoms unless it is advanced or in crisis.

High blood pressure currently affects over 65 million Americans and up to 1 billion people worldwide.

Can green tea help them?

Let's look at the research.

65% lower risk of developing high blood pressure by drinking green teas daily*

*Researchers in Taiwan discovered 65% lower risk high blood pressure for men and women who drank at least 20 ounces (600 ml.) of green or oolong teas daily for at least a year. (Yang, 2004)



People who did not drink tea had no protection against developing high blood pressure during this 8-year study.

Results from 18 studies* about green tea high blood pressure benefits show:

  • Protection during high salt diets

  • Protection during high sugar diets

  • Prevention of new atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries from plaque)

  • Prevention of artery constriction that forces the blood pressure to rise.

  • Less high blood pressure even with genetic hypertension

  • Prevention of high blood pressure developing in normal people

  • Very strong protection against strokes from high blood pressure

*Here are details on the green tea and high blood pressure studies with complete references.

Green tea and high blood pressure: Multiple benefits for you?

In general, green tea shows multiple benefits for healthy people who drink several cups of carefully-prepared green tea daily for a long period of time.

While you may choose to include this healthy daily beverage as part of a positive lifestyle change, you should remember that including an appropriate daily fitness program, stopping smoking, weight management, and stress management are also important ways you can protect yourself against high blood pressure and heart disease.

If you have a specific condition and are taking any medication, you should always consult your health care provider about contraindications.
