What are the benefits of consuming Tea?

Drinking tea has a myriad of health benefits and has been deemed to be a great option to hydrate your body and improve your health….. There is plenty of research showing that drinking tea can actually improve your health, and which type of tea you drink can make a big difference.

All non-herbal teas are made from the leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant, and the amount of time the leaves are processed determines whether you end up with a green, black or an oolong tea. Tea has less caffeine than coffee, and actually herbal blends have no caffeine as they are actually made from plant-based fruits, flowers and herbs, while traditional teas (Black, Green and Oolong),  have less than 50 percent of caffeine that is typically found in coffee… so if you get the jitters from too many coffees, tea may be a great option for you!

Green teas are the least processed of all the teas, and tend to have the highest amounts of polyphenols and antioxidants, and are the only type of tea that contains the polyphenol - catechin, which is why many studies have been done using only green teas.  Catechins are natural antioxidants that help prevent cell damage and provide other benefits, and can reduce the formation of free radicals in the body, protecting cells and molecules from damage.

Even though black tea has many antioxidants on its own.....green tea is even more powerful as it has even more powerful antioxidants that help to fight premature aging and reduce wrinkles

That means it's also a potent anti-aging ingredient that combats signs of aging when ingested and has remarkable properties to keep your skin complexion fresh and healthy.  Matcha green tea also assists in diminishing the signs of aging and is even more potent - think wrinkles be gone!

Tea is full of antioxidants which work to prevent the body’s version of rust and thus help to keep us young and protect us from damage from environmental factors, UV rays, smoking, ageing, toxins and pollution. Load up on tea, as many research studies suggests tea may even assist to reduce our risk of stroke and heart attacks, help with weight loss, help protect our bones and our teeth, and can also help with the digestive system and boost our immune systems!!!

What are the benefits of consuming Collagen?

Collagen is a powerful supplement in the beauty and skin-improvement category, as it addresses hair,  skin  and nails issues from the inside-out. We understand more and more about health and wellness and have more information and knowledge about what to eat, how active we need to be, and about our gut health… as it’s all about “beauty from within”.   We already know about the use of collagen in cosmetics, but what research and technology has achieved is the discovery that is more powerful via the ingestion of collagen resulting in collagen’s stimulatory effects with most of our key concerns with wrinkles, aging skin, loss of skin elasticity and firmness, and even cellulite.

AGE & COLLAGEN

To understand what benefits collagen provides, it’s important to understand what collagen is…. It’s actually a substance that is produced naturally by the body, and is assisted by what we eat, enhancing our natural collagen production.  From our mid-20s, we start to lose about 1% to 2% per year of our naturally produced collagen, and even more if you consider hormone changes, nutrition, smoking, high intake of sugar and exposure to UV rays….. so by our 50’s we’ve lost over half the amount of collagen in our bodies – which is what we call  ‘ageing’ and is most noticeable in our skin and hair quality – which therefore results in wrinkles, loose or sagging skin, finer hair, thinning hair, or even greying hair as well as weaker joints. If you start to take collagen, it will help to support and increase the body’s collagen levels as well as the production of this super protein to replenish it.   Actually, our bodies produce collagen naturally which is in abundance when we’re young, but unfortunately collagen production starts to decline at about age 25, and continues to decline, especially in women after menopause.  

When you start to consume natural hydrolyzed collagen, you should see noticeably firmer and smoother skin with fewer wrinkles, an improved skin surface structure, reduced cellulite, improved hair health and faster nail growth, plus even improved joints and bone health as well.  As collagen is recognised by the fibroblast cells in the dermal layer of our skin, it results in an increased production of dermal collagen replacing what is lost through aging and environmental influences.  As the most abundant protein in our bodies, it’s the ‘glue’ of all our connective tissues and holds our bodies ‘together’, and is the second most abundant substance in our body behind water and is the building block of all our tissues. Collagen makes up 75% of our skin, over 90% of our ligaments and tendons and 35% of our bones – so, yup, it’s pretty important!  But why you’re here and reading this blog on this website is to learn that collagen is responsible for many other structures of our body’s make up like our skin, hair, nails, joints and cartilage.
