According to a study conducted by the University of California and published in the European Journal of Nutrition, black tea improves gut microbiota and intestinal function.
The author of the study, Susanne Henning, says that each person has trillions of microorganisms and diverse bacterial communities, the gut microbiota, which live in our gastrointestinal tract.
Microbiota is a diversified ecological community of microorganisms that are usually a combination of beneficial and potentially harmful bacteria.
The human intestine is similar to a rat intestine and usually houses more than 100 trillion microorganisms.
The colonies start living in our intestines as soon as we are born.
They are essential for the healthy development of our immune system and several neurobiological and physiological functions. Interesting, isn’t it?
According to studies in the Netherlands, Saudi Arabia, and Western Australia, drinking four or more cups a day of black tea increases its benefits.
