Green Tea: Health Benefits Which Have Been Backed By Research

Green tea is believed to be one of the healthiest beverages. It is rich in nutrients and antioxidants, which have a positive effect on the body. Some of the benefits, which it provides are lesser risk of cancer, fat loss and an improved function of the brain. The latest study about green tea reveals that it boosts memory and can make you smart!

Listed here are some of the most amazing health benefits of having green tea which have been backed by research:

  1. The presence of bioactive compounds in green tea helps to improve the health. It is enriched with polyphenols like flavonoids and catechins, which are considered to be powerful antioxidants. These reduce the free radical formation in the body thereby, protecting the cells from damage.
  2. The compounds found in green tea helps to improve the brain function, thus, making you smarter. The main ingredient is caffeine. Though not as much as in coffee, it is enough to create a response. Caffeine blocks Adenosine, an inhibitory neurotransmitter and increases the neurons and thus, the concentration of the neurotransmitters like the norepinephrine and dopamine. It also has an amino acid L-theanine which increases the activity of the inhibitory neurotransmitter GABA. Caffeine and L-theanine work together to improve brain function.
  3. The antioxidants found in green tea can actually lower the risk of cancer. The oxidative damages lead to cancer and antioxidants have a protective effect against cancer. As green tea is enriched with antioxidants it reduces the risk of cancer. Milk should not be added to this tea as it reduces the value of the antioxidants.
  4. Green tea lowers the risk of Parkinson's and Alzheimer's. Thereby, protecting the brain in old age. Alzheimer's is a neurodegenerative disease, which causes dementia. Parkinson's being the second common neurodegenerative disease also involves death of dopamine, produced by the neurons of the brain. The bioactive compounds of the green tea have multiple protective effects and reduce the risk of these disorders.
  5. The dental health can be given a boost by drinking green tea. The catechins found in green tea stop the growth of certain virus and bacteria. This helps to lower the risk of infections and in turn improves dental health, halitosis and caries.
  6. The risk of type 2 diabetes, which is considered to be an epidemic disease can be lowered by having green tea. In diabetes, there is an increased blood sugar level and green tea improves this insulin sensitivity.
  7. Green tea lowers the LDL and total cholesterol. It also protects against the LDL particles from oxidation. This, in turn, is believed to lower the risk of cardiovascular disease.
  8. Eco Valley Dandelion: Eco-Valley Dandelion mint helps in reducing weight & decreases water retention too. Ginger Mulethi Lemon increases Immunity, Sunny lemony helps reduce weight & refreshes mind, Tulsi 50:50 is good for lungs, immunity & reduces stress.

Seborrheic Dermatitis - Which Ayurvedic Remedies Can Help You?

The red, itchy rash on your scalp or body with dandruff-like flakes is actually caused due to seborrheic dermatitis. This skin disease’s resemblance the symptoms of dandruff, eczema, psoriasis or a skin allergy, that seborrheic dermatitis often goes undiagnosed. This is actually bad for your health, as the seborrheic dermatitis patches keep reappearing and get larger. Ayurveda and nature have solutions how to tackle this skin scourge and keep them controlled.

Seborrhea can occur on any part of your body as well as your scalp. It’s symptoms are yellowish flakes and oily scales along with reddened skin. This disease usually occurs on oily areas of your body, such as the face, side of the nose, upper chest and back. The affected skin also looks swollen and greasy. Since seborrheic dermatitis tends to occur in areas of heavy sebum or oil production, studies show that oily skin can be the cause of the disease. Other causes are yeast infection of the skin, and any disease that reduces your immunity like AIDS, or a condition that affects the nervous system like Parkinson’s disease.

Allopathic treatments for the disease are many and they do work, especially if your seborrheic dermatitis is mild. Doctors usually prescribe antifungal creams or medicated shampoos like ketoconazole, selenium sulfide, coal tar, and zinc pyrithione. These do control the symptoms for a while, but the symptoms tend to be back with a change of season. In more severe cases, you may also have to ingest corticosteroid medication to calm the inflammation that occurs due to this skin infection.

This usually prevents a flare-up. Ayurveda is the only therapy that treats seborrheic dermatitis from its roots. Seborrheic dermatitis is a disease that occurs due to the increase in Kapha and Vayu doshas inside your body and is known as Darunak in Ayurveda. Hence, Ayurvedic physicians recommend that you should avoid cold and dry weather, and certain foods to reduce the effects of these two doshas. Avoid too much salt, sour, cold items, curds, eggs and eat more bitter veggies. Oil treatments are very effective and so are certain panchakarma procedures like Abhyangam, Murdha thaila, Virechan, Nasyam are recommended under supervision. Marichyadi tailam is highly recommended for external application on the skin regularly.

Ayurveda also highly recommends the following herbs for controlling seborrheic dermatitis:

  1. Amla: An anti-oxidant that raises immunity levels to stop flare-ups of seborrheic dermatitis.
  2. Giloy: A herb that heals inflammation, due to increased pitta levels in your body.
  3. Neem: This calms pitta. Wash the area affected by skin infection with neem infused water.
  4. Daru Harida: Another powerful healing herb that calms pitta.
  5. Mulethi: This regulates hormonal levels and prevents flare-ups.

Prevention is better than cure. Boost your body immunity by having healthy food and regular exercise. Hygiene and regular bath are equally important, to do wonders in keeping such skin infections at bay.
