Green tea has often been promoted as a powerful weight loss tool. But did you know that it is also highly skin protective and can actually reactivate dying skin cells?
The EGCG in green tea can reactivate dying skin cells. Researchers consider this energizing of dying skin cells to potentially benefit skin diseases such as psoriasis, ulcers, rosacea, wounds – and even wrinkles. Drinking green tea or taking a supplement containing EGCG from green tea can also protect the skin from damaging UV rays.
In addition to these skin benefits, because green tea is rich in polyphenol antioxidants, it can help fight inflammation and age-accelerating free radicals to protect against heart disease and cancer, boost the body’s natural defenses, and exert anti-viral and anti-bacterial effects.
Considering all of tea’s benefits, it’s possible the fountain of youth is no further than your tea pot!
