Green tea: antioxidant superpowers

Packing a giant antioxidant punch, green tea is a must when it comes to Asian beauty routines, where this tea is consumed on a daily basis. Free radicals are substances that can damage delicate tissues, leading to premature aging. Antioxidants in green tea help stop them in their tracks--[1] which helps to promote a healthy body from the inside out and fights against the aging of the organism as a whole.

Red tea: for an extra health kick

This variety, also known as Rooibos or red-bush tea, is antioxidant-rich and caffeine-free, which makes it ideal for drinking in the evening.[1] It’s perfect for aiding digestion. This isn’t surprising as in South Africa, where this tea is from; parents give this to children to relieve colic. It also naturally contains zinc and alpha-hydroxy acid[2], two ingredients which reinforce the immune system.

Black tea: protect and destress

It gets less press than its green cousin, even though it’s the most consume tea in the world. But black tea, which is derived from fermented green tea and thus strengthens its beneficial qualities, also holds powerful antioxidant properties. Studies carried out in Great Britain4 have shown that consuming 3 cups of black tea per day reduces the risk of heart attacks by 11%. This isn’t surprising when we know that another of its advantages is reducing the levels of stress hormones in the body.

The protein whose decline is regulated like a timer.  Every year, from our late twenties, skin will lose it at a rate of 1%* (1) since its production slows down. But this happens even faster if we over-eat foods that accelerate this natural 1% decline.  To find out how much the foods that pass our lips impact the collagen in our skin, read on.
