The top 3 benefits of green tea


1. Fat burning properties

Green tea has proven to contain fat-burning properties that target especially harmful abdominal fat. Green tea contains a lot of antioxidants including catechins which can help you to lose visceral fat. Visceral fat is a type of fat that is the most harmful to your overall health. Green tea has also reportedly been showing signs of speeding up your metabolic rate. When our metabolism speeds up, we also feel better in general.

Use this remedy:

Put on the kettle, add your green tea sachet to your cup. After the kettle has stopped boiling, do not pour immediately. If you pour boiling hot water over green tea, it can affect the potent catechins that do most of the good work. Wait for about 15 minutes before adding water to your tea. Add half a teaspoon of honey and enjoy.


2. Prevents Ageing

Green Tea prevents premature aging with tannic acids, theobromine, and polyphenols helping to soothe the skin and heal the damage caused by the sun by neutralization. Green tea is also rich in EGCG which is an anti-aging antioxidant. EGCG antioxidants help to fight wrinkles by increasing cell turnover. The Chinese even mix their brewed white tea with green tea powder to create a face mask. They believe that it loads up the skin with plumping antioxidants. So to keep your skin looking youthful, enjoy a cup of green tea every now and again as a drink, or as a face mask. 

Use this remedy:

Make two cups of green tea and put it in the fridge, using cotton wool or cloth apply to the area that may have been damaged due to sun damage. Repeat twice a day for great results. Another remedy is, of course, to drink green tea. Enjoy 4 to 5 cups a week for sufficient intake of antioxidants to help fight fine lines and wrinkles from forming. 


3. Reduces inflammation on the skin

Green tea has many antioxidants in which help to flush toxins, heals blemishes, scars and reduces inflammation because of the catechin. The catechins in green tea reduce irritation, redness, and swelling. Many seek remedies for the abovementioned problems, however not many are aware of the fact that green tea can be just the solution they were hoping for. Green tea has some great healing properties and if you ever experience redness, swelling or irritation be sure to give green tea a try. Especially after a night out, many of us can feel the effects of the environmental factors, fatigue, or makeup the next morning. The antioxidants and tannins found in green tea shrink blood vessels beneath the eyes causing dark/red circles and puffiness. So the redness and puffy eyes can be sorted out in no time with the help of green tea. 

Use this remedy:

Mix ¼ cups of green tea with water. Use cotton wool to apply this to the area needed and leave it for 10 minutes while you relax. Rinse and repeat twice daily for great results. You will see a visible difference with this remedy and best of all; it is completely chemical-free


Many believe that green tea is the healthiest drink on earth, and by the looks of it, they are right. With massive amounts of research and in-depth studies, it can be seen that there is no downside to consuming green tea every day. It cannot be argued that aside from water, green tea is the healthiest thing you can drink and moreover you will be able to visibly see as well as feel the effects it has on our body, mind, and skin. Green tea is not popularly known to be the most delicious drink on earth, we can agree with that. However, drinking it with a teaspoon of honey while knowing the great benefits it holds, makes it all worthwhile.
