People in ancient civilizations have been drinking tea for thousands of years, and they haven’t stopped.

Today, it is credited with keeping them alive longer, with brighter minds, and less cancer. Fortunately, it is catching on in America, especially as the scientific data piles up about its benefits.

Green tea and facial toners…

25% of green tea’s dry weight is made up of antioxidants that are 20 to 100 times more powerful than Vitamins C and E.

It contains an antioxidant – ECGC – that has been shown to prevent cancer cells from replicating and spreading.

You can enjoy the beauty benefits of green tea just by putting it directly onto your skin. Dab cool tea onto your face and let it dry, just as you would a toner. It also works really well as part of a facial toner.

Tea infuses easily into witch hazel extract and mixes well with other hydrsols and natural astringents that minimize pores and heal the skin. They all do better when green tea is added to them.

How could such a strong medicine be so much fun to drink?

Most research has focused on the effects of drinking green tea.

Its effects are energizing and relaxing at the same time, so we become calm and alert as we enjoy it. Not surprisingly, tea drinking has been turned into delightful rituals around the world, a time out from the press of the day.

The health benefits of drinking green tea:
  • Reduced risk of cancer
  • Reduced risk of diabetes
  • Reduced risk of stroke
  • Reduced risk of heart failure
  • Reduce risk of rheumatoid arthritis
  • Improved immune function
  • Improved oral health
  • Improved bone health
  • Reduced risk of cognitive impairment with age
  • Protection from bacterial and fungal infections
  • Increased endurance in exercise

If you are sensitive to caffeine, there are decaffeinated versions available. Make sure you get decaffeinated tea made by a natural process of “effervescence” using only water and carbon dioxide, as it retains 95 per cent of the antioxidants. The solvent method of decaffeination, using ethyl acetate, retains only 30 per cent of them.
