Studies that investigated the association between tea consumption and the risk of major cardiovascular events have reported inconsistent results. We conducted a meta-analysis of prospective observational studies in order to summarize the evidence regarding the association between tea consumption and major cardiovascular outcomes or total mortality. In July 2014, we performed electronic searches in PubMed, EmBase, and the Cochrane Library, followed by manual searches of reference lists from the…

The Cochrane Library, PubMed, and MEDLINE using the search term stroke in combinations with the terms nutrition, diet, nutrients, foods, dietary patterns, risk, burden, epidemiology, randomised trial, systematic review, and meta-analysis for articles published between January 1, 2012, and June 1, 2017 found mainly articles published in the past 5 years.



Flavonoid intake and risk of CVD: a systematic review and meta-analysis of prospective cohort studies

The present systematic review suggests that the dietary intakes of six classes of flavonoids, namely flavonols, anthocyanidins, proanthocyanIDins, flavones, flavanones and flavan-3-ols, significantly decrease the risk of CVD.

Does tea affect cardiovascular disease? A meta-analysis.

The geographic region where the studies were conducted appeared to explain much of the heterogeneity among coronary heart disease, myocardial infarction, and probably stroke results, whereas the risk decreased in other regions, particularly in continental Europe.

Self-reported tea consumption in the year before acute myocardial Infarction is associated with lower mortality after infarction, and age- and sex-adjusted mortality was lower among moderate tea drinkers and heavy tea drinkers.
