For thousands of years, the Chinese have used green tea for many health benefits, from longevity to weight loss. The power of the plant Camellia Sinensis, lies in the leaves, which contain a powerful anti-oxidant known as EGCG(Epigallocatechin Gallate). EGCG has been shown to protect the heart, lower LDL cholesterol, fight infection, prevent tooth decay, cardiovascular diseases, and more.
Cosmetic giants like Estee Lauder and Amore Pacific also use green tea attract in their products. The skin benefits they say, are protection against free radicals as well as DNA repair and protection. Therefore, adding green tea to a daily regimen, internally and externally will definitely delay the symptoms of aging. So sip or apply away.

Digestive Enzymes For Beauty

Feb 19, 2013 by

Digestive enzymes are not only great for internal health, they’re also great for healthy skin, nails, and hair. Many of Hollywood’s A-List celebs take supplemental enzymes or use cosmetic products formulated with them to slow or reverse the signs of aging. So how do they work?

Enzymes are found in plants and animals,  but when exposed to heat they are destroyed.  Eating a diet that is mostly raw will supply the body with enzymes that will help break down food into smaller particles to allow for better absorption of nutrients. For those who cook their food, digestive enzyme supplements are a great addition to meals. A healthy internal system leads to healthy skin, hair, and nails. You are what eat.

When applied topically to the skin, enzymes break up dead lack luster surface cells to reveal healthier skin cells. Bromelain and papain are enzymes found in fruits, often used in cosmetic products like masks and serums to clarify the skin and soften lines and wrinkles. Combining enzymes into a daily cosmetic regime can allow moisture and active ingredients to penetrate deeper and work more effectively.

I personally take enzyme supplements almost daily. When I know I am going to consume meals low in them, I pop 2-3 pills depending on how large the meal is. Most of my friends swear by the weight loss potential of supplementing with digestive enzymes. I’ve never been overweight, so personally I can’t say if that’s true or not.
