Green Tea has been used in Chinese and Indian medicine for thousands of years to aid digestion, improve heart and mental health, and regulate body temperature. In the Ayurvedic practice, Green Tea is known for its anti-aging and antioxidant benefits as well as source of calm, clear energy. Green Tea comes from the unoxidized leaves of the evergreen shrub, while black tea in comparison has had the longest oxidation.
Green Tea features in our GLOWING GREENS dietary supplement powder for healthy skin. Tea, especially Green Tea, is a rich source of polyphenolic content – bioactive compounds that can lessen oxidative stress, relieve inflammation and provide other health benefits. Research studies have demonstrated that ingestion of Green Tea Catechins (the major active polyphenols in Green Tea) led to improved skin hydration, trans-epidermal water loss, density and elasticity. In addition, Green Tea has the potential to improve systemic metabolism and aiding with fat loss. These factors make it an ideal ingredient in skin supplements.
