Green Tea - Home Remedies

The claims for green tea include reducing the risk of cancer, preventing or alleviating rheumatoid arthritis and eliminating heartburn.

This is especially of use to those with active lifestyles as anti-oxidents help reduce the level of damage caused by free radicals.

However, if you try it, you will find that green tea is more than just a tasty, hot beverage.

Green teas have become an integral part of home remedies everywhere, from skin and teeth care to general preventative measures.

We detail below some of the common perceived benefits of green tea products.

Green Tea and Weight Loss

Perhaps unusual to think of green tea as having weight loss properties but there now exists a green tea diet and many people swear by green tea extract as part of their weight loss programme.

In fact you will find that green tea extract is contained in proprietary fat burning supplements. The green tea extract is used to increase metabolism without increasing your heart rate. A common side effect of other weight loss supplements.

Green Tea and Skin Care

Green teas have been found to have positive effects in the arena of skin care. Two specific areas include acne and eczema. For acne, this tea makes a great, cheap alternative to expensive toners or astringents.

Many people combine it with ingredients to make a potion that can be applied with a cotton ball directly onto clean skin.

Simply drinking green tea has also worked for some to decrease the presence of acne, although you do have to be careful of increasing the intake of caffeine in your diet, as this has been linked to an increase in breakouts.

Homemade Mouthwash

In addition to skin care, another benefit of green tea claimed by manufactuers is that it can be used as part of a homemade mouthwash.

So what property of this light drink helps keep your teeth healthy? It’s the presence of fluoride that helps prevent tooth decay and strengthens your teeth and gums.

Mixing the brewed tea with spring water makes the most basic recipe, but it can be combined with other ingredients to create intriguing flavors of homemade mouthwashes.

More Health Benefits of Green Tea

A regular daily intake of green tea or green tea extract is also thought to help your overall health and well-being. The tea is full of antioxidants that bind free radicals in our bodies; these free radicals can often cause damage to cells.

There are also several "green tea" research studies linking green tea to cancer prevention. In addition to this wonderful benefit, green tea is also thought to promote an increase in metabolism that helps lower cholesterol in the body.
