Tea: Drink to Your Health

April 25 @ 1:00 pm

Join Mercer County Library System virtual on Thursday, April 25 at 1pm, for a Functional Foods for Life program focused on the most popular drink in the world, tea! A functional food is one that has a “potentially beneficial effect on health when consumed on a regular basis and at certain levels.” Research on tea from the Camellia sinensis plant has included the study of a variety of polyphenol compounds including epigallocatechin 3- gallate (EGCG), theaflavins, and thearubigins, as well as other compounds found in tea. Population studies have indicated possible protective effects from tea consumption in specific chronic diseases. Join us to learn about the history, culture and these potential health benefits of tea. Presented by Sherri Cirignano, MS, RDN, LDN, FCHS Educator and Associate Professor, Warren County, NJ. Please visit www.mcl.org to register to receive the link to program.
