Does drinking lots of green tea help?

My sister has a lot of friends that are into holistic ways, and a lot of them claim that drinking lots of green will provide lots of cardiovascular benefits including a lower blood pressure.

Has anyone found any success with green tea?

Anything is worth a try. I don't really buy into natural remedies though for some reason. Green tea is excellent though in general, if you can stand the taste!

Re: Does drinking lots of green tea help?

I've been drinking two cups of green tea, per day, for a couple of years. My blood pressure is at very healthy levels, but I can't say, for sure, that the green tea has helped, since I've also been on the wonderful, curative Coreg miracle medication. But..... I am sure that the green tea hasn't raised my blood pressure.
