I first discovered Neal’s Yard Remedies Organic last year when I was sourcing certified and organic essential oils to make my own natural skin care products at home. I had heard of the name before, in magazines and publications so I was delighted to see that the certified organic and natural products were within my price range. I had been doing my research and had been recommended them on several platforms and forums online. They are a multi-award winning pioneer of organic beauty since 1981, where the first shop was established in Neal’s Yard, Covent Garden in London.
There have been many studies done on the various teas available and their health and skin benefits so I am going to highlight some of the findings here. Some teas have been found to help with cancer, heart disease, diabetes, cholesterol and weight loss. Flavonoids in teas are good for your heart and may even reduce cancer. Tea has antimicrobial qualities. There are many and varied types of tea available on the market with plenty of variations to choose from. However, the main and purest form of teas are green tea, black tea, white tea, oolong tea and pu-erh teas. All of those originate from a plant called Camellia sinensis which is native to India and China. Among the flavonoids and antioxidants in this plant is ECGC. It is known to fight against the free radicals that are associated with cancer, clogged arteries and heart disease.
