Tea lowers ovarian cancer risk by up to 46%

Study found Tea may protect against Ovarian Cancer

A Swedish study followed more than 60,000 women ages 40 to 76 for more than 15 years. Analysis of their food showed that women who drank more than two cups of tea a day lowered their ovarian cancer risk by 46%; those who drank one cup of tea a day lowered their risk by 24%. On average, each additional cup of tea was associated with an 18% decrease in the risk for developing ovarian cancer.

The results of this study were published in the Archives of Internal Medicine in December 2005.

As the cold weather settles in – this is the perfect time to relax with a warm cup of Salubre tea.

At Salubre we have been busy, recently attending the Good Food & Wine Show in Melbourne.

What a great event, where people with a love of good food gathered to try new products. At the show we met many people who tried Salubre teas for the first time.

We were delighted to speak with people about their impressions of each of the teas as they tried samples of our range.

Some comments received included.....

'this has a great taste, i don't need to add anything into it'

"i love herbal tea, the digest abili - tea is quite nice and its perfect because we just ate lunch"

"i have been searching to buy tea with this quality, we just don't have time to go down to the yarra glen to buy our usual organic tea"

We also would love to congratulate Sue from Port Melbourne for winning the draw that consisted of the Ashdene Kyoto Tea Pot and chose Longevi - tea to accompany it.

Tea is rich in anti–oxidants. Anti–oxidants are nutrients that we gain from foods and drinks that we consume. They are important in our diet as we generate free radicals through natural physiological processes that occur in our body as well as stress and other factors.

It’s these anti–oxidants that are important to protect our body from cell damage that the free radicals do which can lead to serious illnesses later on in life. Tea as a anti – cancer agent – a recent study published in New Scientist magazine found green tea which contains catechins has the ability to reduce the number and size of tumors, protect against the body against some cancers such as lung, breast and prostate cancers as well as inhibiting the growth of cancer cells.

In addition it was found that white tea has been claimed to be even more effective. Study found Tea may protect against Ovarian Cancer

How does the tea taste? The taste in the teas varies with each type.

Feminini-Tea, Longevi-Tea and Clari-Tea are sweet due to the herbs consisting of various fruits.

Tranquili-Tea possesses a lemony taste combined with the soothing blend of other flowers that make it light and relaxing.

Digest-Abili-Tea is quite fruity while Sereni-Tea's peppermint stands out making it an enjoyable beverage when stressed.

How long will it take until I feel better?

The time taken until someone would feel some benefit varies according to each individual, however on average it would take a period of two weeks of continually enjoying a specific tea.

How long does the tea maintain its freshness?

As all the teas contain some fruit to varying amounts it is ideal to keep the tea in a cool environment away from the heat. If you reside in a warmer climate then by refrigerating the tea freshness is ensured for up to a year.

Many asked for added assistance either through drinking a beverage that would help in their healing or a topical application that would improve a variety of skin presentations.
