According to experts at Indiana University School of Medicine, the antioxidant properties of Persian Tea are more effective when consumed as a beverage rather than taken as a supplement. The same experts claim that neither caffeine nor temperature deter the antioxidant effects present in the tea. This serves to prevent several types of cancer associated with the oxidation of cells and tissues. Also of note, the phytochemicals and flavonoids serve to prevent the risk of cancer.
