Green Tea Being Used As A Cosmetic Treatment

Green Tea is a drink that is becoming increasingly popular for cosmetic purposes that helps the visible signs of aging. Green Tea is also an alternative to the caffeinated tea and coffee that the majority of adults will drink on a regular basis.  It does not contain caffeine, so will not have the associated effects of sleeplessness and irritability.  It also has no effect on the heart rate, unlike caffeine, which causes this to increase.

Green tea can have a positive impact on the body in a number of different ways.  It contains extremely high levels of chemicals called antioxidants, which help to prevent damage being done to the body and to the DNA.  Damage to the DNA can lead to dangerous conditions such as cancer, but it also leads to the natural aging process.  Preventing these changes from occurring can lead to a reduction in the visible signs of aging, and even slow the process down.  However, it cannot reverse any changes that have already occurred.

Green Tea Helping The Anti-Aging Process

The cosmetic surgery industry has seen a huge demand recently for anti-aging treatments such as Botox, dermal fillers and even the more invasive procedures such as facelifts.  However, these procedures do not prevent the aging process; rather, they simply mask the effects on a temporary basis.  In order to get the maximum benefit from any treatments that are carried out, it is also important to try to slow down the aging process.  A regular intake of the antioxidants that are found in green tea can help to do this, combined with a healthy diet that includes plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables.

All of these foods can be causing your mood to decrease, so if you feel you need to improve your mood try adding these foods to your diet: Spinach, Oily Fish, Peanuts, and Yogurt. More Info Here
