We have all heard or read about “the almighty green tea” and how it can do wonders from helping you lose weight to preventing cancer and reducing heart disease. A good portion of MD Beauty Secrets’ skin care products contains green tea. Thus, we want to educate you on why we chose green tea as a primary ingredient in our skin care line.
Green tea has numerous important nutrients, some of which have powerful medicinal properties. For instance, green tea is rich with polyphenols that are powerful antioxidants. Such elements can reduce certain diseases as well as aging.
However, the mighty element in green tea is the potent antioxidant known as Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). EGCG has been used in the following studies and treatments: HIV, cancer, arthritis pain, endometriosis, inflammation, dementia, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, and more. To add icing to the already delicious cake, green tea not only supports your health but it is also can help you lose weight!
Just when you think this drink is too good to be true, it gets even better. When used topically green tea can act as an anti-inflammatory agent and is full of antioxidants that will nourish your skin. Accordingly, green tea can help with sunburns, reduce Psoriasis and Rosacea, and prevent wrinkles. At MD Beauty Secrets we use green tea as a soothing agent as well as a powerful agent to combat free radical damage.
