Green Tea – Not Just For A Pretty Face

Green tea is a marvel, full of beauty benefits.  There is anti-wrinkle power in every cup, as well as protection against other forms of aging, including skin cancer.  And there are extensive overall health benefits as well, including protection from cancer, diabetes, and stroke.

A recent study by the University of Newcastle in the UK found that the healing compounds  in green tea can protect against Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.

The scientists looked at the effects of green tea after it had been digested, to make sure the benefits remained after drinking.  They found it got even better.

“When green tea is digested by enzymes in the gut, the resulting chemicals are actually more effective against key triggers of Alzheimer’s development than the undigested form of the tea… In addition to this, we also found the digested compounds had anti-cancer properties, significantly slowing down the growth of the tumor cells which we were using in our experiments.”
