Researchers from the UK claim that drinking black tea may help keep teeth in good condition by preventing tooth decay and gum disease.

A review of existing studies focused on tea's ability to combat two types of bacteria - Streptococcus mutans and Lactobacillus - and concluded that three to four daily cups reduced their respective levels in the mouth. Compounds found in tea and known as flavanoids and catechins appear to reduce inflammation. They actually prevent the growth of bacteria that start a chain reaction with carbohydrates to produce acid, which then dissolves enamel. Similar effects were observed for green tea, which was also found to have the potential to aid weight loss by boosting energy expenditure and burning up more fat.
