Green Tea Lowers Risk of Heart Disease – Use Your Zen Timer to Time Your Tea

Green Tea for Heart Disease

Green Tea for Heart Disease

Start sipping your way to a stronger ticker. While heart disease is the biggest killer of women in the United States — nearly twice as many women die from heart disease and stroke than from all forms of cancer combined — a recent “Journal of the American Medical Association” report on green tea offers hope.

In 1994, researchers began studying a group of 40,530 Japanese adults (ages 40 to 79) with no history of stroke or heart disease. Following up with participants 11 years later, they discovered that women who drank five or more cups of the green elixir daily had a 31 percent lower risk of death from cardiovascular disease compared to those who drank less than one cup. (Tea-drinking men showed a 22 percent lower risk.) Can you still safeguard your heart without draining an entire kettle each day? According to lead study author Shinichi Kuriyama, M.D., Ph.D., drinking at least one cup daily would produce health benefits.

“The Zen Alarm Clock & Chime Timer‘,  uses soothing acoustic chimes that signal it’s time –  gently and gradually.

Rather than an artificial recorded sound played through a speaker, the Zen Clock features an alloy chime bar similar to a wind chime.  When the clock’s alarm is triggered, its chime produces a long-resonating, beautiful acoustic tone reminiscent of a temple gong.
