Pu-erh tea is used for improving mental alertness and sharp thinking. It is also used for reducing high cholesterol
Pu-erh tea contains caffeine, although not as much caffeine as other teas. Caffeine works by stimulating the (CNS) central nervous system, heart, and muscles. Pu-erh tea also contains antioxidants and other substances that might help protect the heart and blood vessels. There is interest in using pu-erh tea for lowering cholesterol because, unlike other teas, it contains small amounts of a chemical called lovastatin. Lovastatin is a prescription medicine used for lowering cholesterol. Investigators think that bacteria that sometimes contaminate pu-erh tea may somehow make the lovastatin in the course of their normal life cycle.
