E)...b/c "brewed leaves" is plural and "its" is singular. so that the modifying sentence clearly refers to "leaves" we must choose E). furthemore "or" is preferred to "and". am i right ?

E it is...

Any choice with its is causing 2 problems, first, it is not able to find its referent. Is it brewed leaves or The health benefits... and second, its is singular is modifying plural subjects.

Left with D and E

D says preventing and inhibiting, should be preventing or inhibiting

E is good.
