If you want to protect your heart health, I recommend drinking green tea and supplementing with a green tea extract.
Green tea also protects your skin.
Green tea contains a flavonoid called catechin, and this is an antioxidant that helps break down excess fat.
This lowers blood cholesterol and provides more oxygen in your blood that increases heart health.
Green tea is one of the most commonly consumed teas in the world. Green tea extract is its concentrated form, with just one capsule containing the same amount of active ingredients as an average cup of green tea.
Like green tea, green tea extract is a great source of antioxidants, but it is much stronger than the tea.
Tea infusions typically only contain 90 to 300 mg of antioxidants, while most supplements contain up to 1,000 mg, but with any supplement, don’t take too much at one time so that you can allow your body some down time to flush out any excess.
Green Tea And Your Skin
Green tea helps your skin – inside and out. You can drink it and use it as a mask.
Green tea is an anti-inflammatory, and this can help with acne and oily skin, and reduces rosacea redness because green tea contains polyphenols.
Polyphenols are plant compounds that have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties that help reduce inflammation and protect your skin.
The powerful antioxidant EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate) in green tea fights DNA damage from UV rays, and this helps prevent skin cancer and acts as a potent anti-aging ingredient.
You can use green tea as a cleanser:
- Blend 2 tablespoons of green tea infusion with 1 tablespoon honey.
- Mix it well.
- Apply it to the skin, covering your neck.
- Massage for 2 minutes all over your face and neck.
- Rinse with water.
Green Tea And Ulcers
If you have ulcers or acid reflux, don’t drink too much green tea because green tea stimulants the production of gastric acid. You can still enjoy a cup of green tea and reduce the gastric acid by adding milk of your choice.
