GREEN TEA AND CLASIC MUSIC EFFECT FOR SYSTOLIC AND DIASTOLIC BLOOD PRESSURE
Man Kyu Huh* and Yong Lim
Green tea (Camellia L.) is one of the most popular beverages in the world. Music is an important part of people's way of life. Blood pressure (BP) is a major risk factor for stroke. The electronic blood pressure gauge and stethoscope blood pressure gauge were used to blood pressure at the upper extremity using an expansion cuff. Regardless of green tea, they were satisfied (62%) with classical music and were very satisfied (32%). After drinking green tea with classic music, the systolic blood pressure of men and women was 138.5 mmHg and 139.7 mmHg, respectively. For men, the diastolic blood pressure decreased from 86.9 mmHg to 84.7 mmHg if they listened to music and drank tea. For men, the difference by the measurers averaged 3.33 mmHg at the systolic (maximum blood pressure) and the standard deviation (SD) was 1.99. The average difference in women's relaxation period was 4.53 mmHg and the SD was 3.42. There was no significant difference for systolic blood pressures between male and female in the presence of music. This study showed that green tea and music combined have a synergy effect in preventing high blood pressure.
