As reported in Nutrition, Metabolism, and Cardiovascular Diseases, a meta-analysis involved 20 RCTs and 1536 participants showed that consumption of green tea (Camellia sinensis) is associated with a reduction in systolic blood pressure (-1.94 mmHg) and improved lipid profile (TC, -0.13 mmol/l; LDL-C, -0.19 mmol/l). Additional studies quantifying the association are needed.
