Green Tea: A Protective Power Not To Be Meddled With

Green Tea is high in antioxidants and offers skin protection through the benefits of powerful antioxidants to repair damaged skin and restore elasticity.

The sun's ultraviolet (UV) rays are a major cause of skin cancer. UV damages and prematurely ages skin by generating free radicals that cause skin cells to malfunction and mutate. A 2002 study in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology found that UV exposure greases the wheels for skin damage partly by depleting antioxidants in the body. So, it makes sense that replacing these protective substances could bolster skin’s weakened defenses.

Dermatologist and nutritionist agree that a diet high in antioxidants and nutrients such as vitamins C, E and A, zinc, selenium, beta carotene, omega-3 fatty acids and lycopene can help to reduce the risk or prevent skin cancer.

Studies show that drinking green can help prevent skin cancer with numerous studies pointing to additional benefits. Polyphenols in green tea are plant chemicals with powerful antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and tumor-inhibiting properties, and have been found to repair DNA in UV-exposed skin, reducing cell damage. In the lab, green tea either consumed or applied directly to the skin has helped prevent UV-triggered skin cancer by absorbing UV damage and scavenging free radicals. A recent study concluded that tea’s polyphenols may reduce your skin cancer risk significantly if you drink four to six freshly brewed cups a day.*

Limiting sun exposure, using sunscreen plus a diet rich in antioxidants and nutrients are effective in reducing the risk of skin cancer. 

Hawaiian Natural Tea’s Organic Green Tea offers robust antioxidants and zero calories. Simply add Organic Green Tea to your daily routine to nourish and restore your body to the best it can be.
