Green tea has a beneficial effect on heart and vascular health due to the presence of catechins and helps increase the level of “good” cholesterol. In addition, it reduces the risk of blood clots and reduces the likelihood of heart attack and stroke by 26%.
In conclusion, the scientists emphasized that regular consumption of green tea has a positive effect on skin condition. Polyphenols protect the skin from exposure to ultraviolet rays and reduce the risk of melanoma and non-melanoma cancer. There was also a decrease in the appearance of rashes and an improvement in the condition of the skin with rosacea.
