5,000 Year Old Beverage May Protect Against Gum Disease

A group of Japanese researchers have recently reported that green tea may provide protection against gum disease. The results of their study are published in the March issue of the Journal of Periodontology.

Their research is especially important as recent studies have shown that gum disease can significantly raise your risk of heart disease and heart attack.

For the study, a team of researchers from Kyushu University recruited 940 men between 49 and 59 years old. Each participant filled out a questionnaire that researchers used to establish green tea intake.

The researchers measured a number of different factors that increase the risk for, or lead to gum disease like periodontal pocket depth, clinical attachment loss of gum tissue and bleeding on probing.

They found that drinking green tea daily resulted in a decrease in all three of these measures. Plus, the benefits appeared to increase as the quantity of green tea consumed increased.

This is another in a long list of studies that show green tea to have a wide variety of health benefits. Previous research indicates that the popular beverage may reduce your risk of heart attack, stroke, certain cancers and could also help support healthy eyes and mood.
