Improvement of attention.
Tea contains polyphenols & other components that may reduce the risk of developing chronic iseases from free radicals & toxins.
Activated charcoal contributes to the reduction of excessive intestinal gas accumulation.
Reduction of bloating: a beneficial physiological effect.Reduction in abdominal pain with no side effects.
Diarrhoea: It might be able to prevent bacteria and drugs that can cause diarrhoea from being absorbed into the body by trapping them on its porous, textured surface.
Activated charcoal might had few side effects, especially in comparison with common antidiarrheal medications; but also could hinder the drug absorption.

The Official Statement on Activated Charcoal (EFSA): There is an authorised health claim for activated charcoal. To give the specific wording, EFSA agrees that activated charcoal supports the “reduction of excessive intestinal gas accumulation”.
Detox & eliminate potential toxins from the digestive system.Cholesterol Control: Any supplement or medicine that has the potential to significantly yet safely reduce cholesterol in the body is of great interest to researchers. One such study tested the effects of activated charcoal on individuals with high cholesterol levels. Taking 8 grams of charcoal, three times a day, seems to have “locked” some of the otentially dangerous cholesterol away, quickly removing it from the body. As a result, harmful LDL olesterol fell by between 25% and 41% over a period of just four weeks, while beneficial HDL cholesterol rose by an average of 8%. This is a powerful and potentially exciting discovery, but more research will be
required to implement it medically. Prevent a hangover: Activated charcoal is also available in tablet or capsule forms to treat gas. This form is not used to treat a poisoning. Activated charcoal is a
manufactured product. You cannot find it naturally in foods.
Black Tea Extract:
Black tea extract is enriched in theaflavins, which can influence chymotrypsin.
The theaflavins in black tea has antioxidant properties.
Black Tea is a rich source of special antioxidants called flavonoids, considered to be some of
the most potent antioxidants in nature. Scientists believe antioxidants in the diet have an
important role to play in the fight against diseases including cancer.
Black tea may help with weight loss
Black tea and improvement of attention:
Evaluation of a health claim pursuant to Article 13(5) of Regulation (EC) No
1924/2006. Conclusions: On the basis of the data presented, the Panel concludes
Black tea characterised by its content of tea solids, caffeine and L-theanine, which is
the subject of the health claim, is sufficiently characterised in relation to the claimed
The claimed effect: ‘improvement of attention’. The target population proposed by the
applicant is ‘adults in general population’. Improvement of attention is a beneficial
A cause and effect relationship has been established between the consumption of
black tea and improvement of attention.
Following wording reflects scientific evidence: ‘Owing to its caffeine content, black
tea improves attention’. In order to obtain the claimed effect, 2–3 servings of black
tea providing at least 75 mg of caffeine in total should be consumed within 90 min.
The target population is adults in the general population.
Effectiveness of Black Tea
For Hardening of the arteries (atherosclerosis): Early research shows that people
who consume black tea seem to have a reduced risk of having their arteries become
hardened. This link is stronger in women than men.
Low blood pressure after eating (postprandial hypotension): Black tea helps increase
blood pressure in older people who have low blood pressure after eating.
Kidney stones: Women who d consume black tea seem to have an 8% lower risk of
developing kidney stones.
Heart attacks: Some research shows that people who consume black tea have a
lower risk of having a heart attack.
Brittle bones (osteoporosis): Early research shows that older women who consume
more black tea seem to have stronger bones. Consuming more black tea also seems
to be linked with a lower risk of hip fracture in older men and women.
Tea and Health: Studies in Humans: Conclusion:
It is increasingly appreciated that tea contains polyphenols and other components
that may reduce the risk of developing chronic diseases such as cancer,
cardiovascular diseases, arthritis and diabetes.
Tea acts as a chemo-preventive agent against a wide range of cancers. To evaluate
the efficacy of tea against cancer, clinical trials are being conducted. Encouraging
data from many trials are available and from many ongoing trials are awaited.
However, results from human studies are not always positive, may be, due to the fact
that the higher doses of tea are used in animal studies than those consumed by
humans and in animal studies, the experimental conditions are generally optimized
for the evaluation of a protective effect. Large scale well-controlled human clinical
trials are necessary to establish the health promoting effects of tea consumption.
There was sufficient evidence to show risk reduction for CHD at intakes of > or = 3
cups per day and for improved antioxidant status at intakes of one to six cups per
day. A maximum intake of eight cups per day would minimise any risk relating to
excess caffeine consumption. Black tea generally had a positive effect on health.
