But what of these purported health benefits? A visit to the NIH library at PubMed Central only strengthened the love; many Chinese researchers in multiple scholarly articles provided a slew scientific reasons to make mine Pu-erh in the a.m.
The evidence was a regular alphabet soup of enzymes and genes and proteins favorably enhanced or suppressed by this brew and its metabolic byproducts of fermentation. I’ll leave the anti-obesity praise to Dr. Oz who, incidentally, is looking downright anorectic to me. Rather, consider some of the anti-tumor aspects of Pu-erh enumerated in an article(1) supported by grants from the“Scientific Puer Action” program.
Well make mine Pu-erh! Great flavor, way more nuanced and full-bodied than green, and stops tumor cell cycles dead in their tracks!
