The Many Health Benefits of Pu-erh Tea

The aroma and flavors of Pu-erh tea provide more than enough reasons to become a Pu-erh enthusiast. However, in addition to all these delicious motivating factors, part of what keeps people coming back to Pu-erh are all its incredible health benefits.

Scientific research continues to pour in about the many health benefits of Pu-erh, but today we’d like to take a few moments to explain some of the most potent health advantages to drinking Pu-erh tea.

  • One of the most well-known benefits of Pu-erh is its powerful ability to lower the amount of harmful LDL Cholesterol in the bloodstream, thus reducing your risk for heart disease.
  • Pu-erh tea is also a rich source of polyphenols which contain antioxidants that can prevent tumor growth, as well as stall the growth of several other harmful microorganisms.
  • As Pu-erh tea ferments, a molecule called theobromine is formed, which prevents harmful oils from being absorbed into the body. It also reacts with the caffeine in the tea, dulling its effects and making it so that the tea has no effect on the drinker’s sleep schedule.
  • A recent study released in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition showed that elderly women who drank tea often had a higher bone density and a much lower risk of fracture.

These are just a few of the many benefits of drinking Pu-erh tea, many of which are still being discovered by nutritional scientists. At the end of the day, though, these benefits are just some reasons of many to adapt a Pu-erh lifestyle.
