Whenever I use my flower’y cup and drink te, I feel like the Queen of England.
There are several benefits of drinking tea in general, no matter if its green, black, red, or white. But I’ve posted an entry about green tea already that I thought I’d post one with the benefits of white tea this time. It has a high level of Vitamin A, which is good for eyesight, skin, hair, mucous membranes, an amazing immune system boost, bones, and cell membranes. Plus, is also considered to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and cancer. One of the biggest factors of white tea health benefits are the high levels of antioxidants, it also prevents Alzheimer’s and repairs DNA damage caused by radiation. White tea stands out to be even more effective at preventing cancer than black and green tea, positive effects on weightloss and one cup contains up to three times as much nutrients as green tea. And, an American study has shown that white tea also is effective against infections, bacteria, and viruses.

& Green tea are wonders for your mind, body, & soul and probably one of the greatest beverage you can enjoy and at the same time know it’s healthy for you. 1-2 cups per day can be a great tool for weight control, and 2-3 cups a day burns up to 100 calories. But green tea has other several amazing factors, as well as preventing osteoporosis and kidney disease, Reduces the risk of diabetes by protecting insulin-producing cells. Also protects the skin against UV damage, and the antioxidant in it prevents the body from absorbing 30%+ less fat. The antioxidant also clenses which leads to a healthier and clean skin!

And also Vitamin D with coconut oil!

It gets darker quicker. Lack of Vitamin D increases the risk of cancer, heart disease, depression, autism, colds, obesity, osteoporosis and early death. So make sure to get your intake of Vitamin D!

Panto-3; Is something someone recommended, for the hair. Supposed to makes it stronger, more lucious, and shiney. Plus helps grow faster. I’ve taken them since last year and not only does it grow faster, but it’s 10 times thicker. I also get a hair spa once a week, sculp massage and a hair mask. My hair & skin are probably the two things I care most about.

Pantothenic/B5; Lack of pantothenic and B5 leads to skin problems, acne and zits. Since I started taking them I haven’t even worried about something unwelcoming popping on my face.
