If you have a nervous system disorder, the nerve cells need extra protection. Herbs like gingko biloba, valerian, and skullcap can provide you with that. Green tea also shields neurons from oxidative stress, a process that worsens problems. Milk thistle will even promote nerve cell growth and make them live longer. Are you pregnant or breastfeeding? Don’t take these herbs. If you’re on medication, talk to your doctor before taking herbal supplements.
Antioxidant-rich green tea is the beverage of choice for many health-conscious men and women. And while it does help lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels, and boost muscle strength and exercise performance, it is no miracle fat-burning cure. Among healthy individuals of normal weight, it could provide a boost to fat oxidation after exercise or for a short interval after a meal. But this is not enough to trade it in for a comprehensive diet and fitness plan.
Water forms a major component of your body composition. You are required to drink an adequate quantity of water each day to keep yourself hydrated and fresh, maintain essential body functions, keep the blood pressure and sugar levels under check, keep your body temperature intact, and compensate for the water lost through sweating and urination. Drink as much flavored water as you can. Salads with fresh produce also contain a lot of water.
Green tea is a comforting beverage with many health benefits but moms-to-be often wonder if it's safe to have it during pregnancy. The good news is you don't have to worry too much. A few cups a day are fine. But if you go overboard, it could adversely impact folate levels, up the risk of miscarriage, and affect the birth weight of the baby. Drinking too many cups can also bring on headaches, dizziness, abdominal spasms, and even insomnia – side effects you don't want to reckon with when you are pregnant!
Toothpaste is a surprising home remedy for acne. As a spot treatment, it kills bacteria and dries up excess sebum. Never use it as a mask! To heal a pimple, apply a dot of toothpaste and let dry overnight. A few drops of tea tree oil will add an antimicrobial boost. You can also promote wound healing with powdered turmeric, green tea leaves, and honey. These ingredients will control oil and acne-causing bacteria. When possible, use an all-natural cream toothpaste.
Adding lemon and honey to green tea is delicious, but it’s also healthier. The anti-oxidative polyphenols in green tea are better absorbed with vitamin C. Lemon juice is a rich source, making it the perfect match! Honey and polyphenols have anti-inflammatory properties, while all three strengthen your immunity. As antioxidants, vitamin C and polyphenols enhance white blood cells, while honey is a prebiotic. It improves gut health, the “ruler” of your immune system.
Green tea is a delicious drink, but you can also find it in face creams. Its antibacterial polyphenols work against acne-causing bacteria. The polyphenols will also control sebum production, another cause of pimples. If you’re worried about wrinkles, green tea creams will strengthen the skin. Plus, polyphenols are antioxidants, so they’ll protect your cells from free radicals. Together, these benefits rejuvenate the skin and prevent cancer.

We all fall easy prey to the pretty packaging and the bold slogans. And with so many clever marketers around, it's hard to tell the good food products from the "fake" or unhealthy ones. For instance, lunch meats can be carcinogenic, diet products and flavored yogurt are full of artificial sweeteners that can lead to obesity and heart diseases. Always opt for natural food options, and when possible, try replicating them at home yourself!
