Theresa, a Perriconista of 10 years, credits the 28 Day Diet and regular Green Tea consumption with her beautiful skin.
Tea is now praised so frequently, we might actually need a refresher on its numerous health benefits. Tea boosts your immune system, stabilizes cholesterol levels and helps to fend off infection. An ideal example of the Brain Beauty Connection, tea provides amazing beauty benefits such as reducing and preventing acne, slowing the aging process to prevent wrinkles, and promotes weight loss.
Dr. Perricone recommends Green Tea especially, as it contains one of the most important polyphenols in tea is EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate), a potent antioxidant that contributes to the protective cardiovascular and neurological effects reported in many studies.
As a result of minimal processing, green tea retains its natural appearance and vibrant color as well as the high levels of the plant’s health properties. Green tea varies dramatically in flavor from grassy and sweet, to floral and fresh, to nutty and roasted. Green tea’s flavor depends on the plant, season of harvest, soil, elevation, weather, cultivation, and origin. Each region has its own distinct flavor and aroma.
