A new study by experts led by Feng Lei, at National University of Singapore’s School of Medicine, confirms a link between tea intake and cognitive decline, MNT has reported.
There have been several earlier studies underlining the high levels of antioxidants in tea linked to a lower risk of diabetes, heart disease, and cancer. The health benefits of tea consumption have also been well documented according to the study published in The American Jourbnal of Public Health. However, its potential health benefits go much farther.
The latest study reported by MNT indicates up to 86% lower risk of cognitive decline for tea drinkers. The researchers note that the cognitive benefits were seen with consumption of tea that was brewed from tea leaves, such as green tea, black tea, and oolong tea.
The study links the beneficial characteristics of tea to its healthy contents such as theaflavins, catechins, thearubigins, and L-theanine.
"These compounds exhibit anti-inflammatory and antioxidant potential and other bioactive properties that may protect the brain from vascular damage and neurodegeneration," Lei explains
Herbally Radiant has been using tea extracts in its beauty formulations. The extracts of buds and leaves of tea make very effective ingredient in natural organic products. Green teas have the highest concentration of antioxidant properties (polyphenol and flavonoid content). Green and white teas thus possess anticancer and antimutagenic properties which also provide excellent skin nourishment.
Green tea is particularly beneficial in preventing heart problems, lowering cholesterol, burning fat, preventing strokes and diabetes. The green tea is available with minimal processing – its leaves are withered and not fermented. It therefore becomes effective organic ingredient in top beauty formulations designed to prevent acne and restore the shine of the facial skin, while also nourishing hair and maintaining their shine.
Herbally Radiant has therefore used green tea extract for its anti-aging properties. Its top of the range products, namely, Rejuvenating and Radiant contain a combination of essential oils which work in tandem with tea extracts and create a revitalized and bright skin. These formulations have been very popular with customers who have experienced reduction in appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
The Rejuvenating and Radiant Cleansers have been specially launched by Herbally Radiant to help eliminate very gently all impurities, including make-up marks, without stripping skin of its natural oils. This helps skin to absorb rich nutrients from specially prepared serums and moisturizers. The net result is a fine rejuvenated skin, showing bright side of it.
