For Your Health: Benefits of Tea
premium content

(CNN) -- Studies suggest that tea -- especially green tea -- provides healthy benefits.

Green tea leaves are the least processed and have lower levels of caffeine than other types of tea. The leaves contain high-level antioxidants thought to fight different types of cancer and also protect the heart by relaxing blood vessels, which prevents blood clots.

Other studies suggest tea increases bone density, therefore reducing the risk of fractures from osteoporosis.
