Here goes the blog post.

I am not much of a great “tea lover” but eventually, started having tea when I started with my first job. And then it was unavoidable to not to have a cup of tea daily. A sip of this hot drink was like it was sharing my work related pressure and suddenly I would feel rejuvenated. Thus, started my journey to a regular tea drinker and along with it started some acidity related problems. And one day my doctor abstained me from drinking any more tea. Now, I had to find a substitute and then my mother suggested me to have Green tea. She told me innumerable benefits of consuming it regularly. Green tea has an abundance of antioxidants and is helpful in digestion, thus reducing some extra accumulated stubborn fat.

Then I was convinced to opt for green tea after doing a detailed research about its positive outcomes. I bought my first packet of green tea of a well known brand but was not pleased by its sour taste. I never drank it again until I came across TE-A-ME green teas.

TE-A-ME teas taste is too good. I got 3 flavours Natural Green tea, Honey Lemon green tea, Tulsi green tea. All of them are so good in taste that I’m love with them. Now I consume them every day.

Although we can add these added ingredients to simple green tea for additional benefits, but TE-A-ME has introduced different flavours to enable its users to consume tea with convenience.

All I can say is “Te Amo” to “TE-A-ME”. It is just like what their tagline says “It’s better, not bitter”.

My Rating: 5/5

Availability: Easily available on Amazon.in on good discount. Order yours now! And feel the difference.

Green Tea for Hair Loss Prevention

Hair loss is distressing; especially if you are in your 30s and 40s. In a society, where scalp full of hair is considered as a symbol of youthfulness and vitality, losing hair can seriously dent self-image and cause psychological stress. In this article we shall see what causes hair fall and how herbal remedy like green tea can aid arresting hair fall.

Baldness, alopecia, hair fall 

Hair is nothing but protein filament growing from follicles or pores in dermis; a layer of skin. It is common to see elderly people with a receding hairline; thin hair and low volume of hair; because hair fall is part of natural aging. However, hair loss in young age has different reasons behind. We still do not know exactly what causes hair fall and how that works; but there are scientific research backed evidences. As per those evidences, premature or early hair fall happens mostly due to any of the following reasons;

Genetics – It is a major reason behind pattern hair loss among male; though pattern hair fall among women is not affected by genetics.

Infections – This is the most prevalent factor. There are various types of infections that can cause your hair to fall prematurely; like, dissecting cellulitis, tinea capitis or other fungal infection, micro-mite in sebaceous gland. Often these infections cause dandruff, which weaken follicles.

Trauma – Excessive pulling, bending of hair regularly can also cause hair fall along with childbirth, poisoning, major surgery etc.

How to managing hair loss

Hair fall is not completely curable once it has started. However, you can manage it by either lowering the rate of hair fall or adding new volume of hair. There are various treatments available, starting from applying steroid based ointments on scalp to surgical procedures, which can implant new hair from other parts of our body. Though, all these have shown only moderate success and are not-so-reliable as long term solution. So, we need to consider preventive care.

Compared to these expensive treatments you can try green tea to prevent as well as manage your hair loss. On regular use, green tea can offer good health to your hair. Let us see how that happens.

Vitamin for hair growth – Green tea extracts and brewed green tea contains Vitamin C and minerals and various B complex vitamins, like, penthenol, thiamine etc. These micronutrients help to strengthen hair shaft and control hair splitting. It has been studied that hair splitting is one of the major reasons behind premature hair loss.

Polyphenols and catechins – Active anti-oxidants, like, epigallocatechin gallate or ECGC, present in green tea are effective for hair health. They can stimulate hair follicles and cell structure; also following application on scalp, green tea extracts can elongate hair.

Anti-inflammatory benefits – Regular cleansing of scalp with green tea extracts can control micro-mite and other pathogenic infections within hair follicles. It has been observed that infections are one of the major reasons behind early hair loss.

Balancing oil on scalp – Green tea is natural astringent and control excess sebum secretion on scalp skin. This way it helps to keep scalp free from excess oil and promote hair growth by stopping follicles from clogging.

Dihydrotestosterone or DHT blocker – DHT plays a crucial factoring behind early hair fall among men. 5-alpha-reductase in green tea extract blocks DHT and helps to arrest rate of hair fall.

So, continue having your regular cups of green tea and also start rinsing your scalp with green tea extracts. It has no side effect like other steroid based treatments and not expensive like operative procedures. Prevent early hair fall; live a happy life.

Address Pimples and Acne with Green Tea

Are you losing goodnight’s sleep over pimples and acne? Don’t think you are alone; because these skin diseases are affecting over 630 million people around the world and and stand 8th in the list of common diseases. It is important to understand what is pimple and acne; what causes them and how we can control them for a better skin. Let us see.

What is pimple and acne? 

Pimples and acnes are hair follicles or pores clogged with dead skin cells, mostly seen on facial skin. Below our skin there are sebaceous glands secreting oily or waxy substances, medically called sebum. These substances help to maintain skin lubrication and water resistance quality of our skin. Due to constant exposure to external environment, human facial skin naturally experiences maximum sebum secretion.

Pimples and acnes crop up when dead skin cells, mixed with sebum, become gluey and get trapped inside hair follicles. Gluey dead skin cells block hair follicles and stop freshly secreted sebum from flowing out through pores. Situation becomes ugly when infection and inflammation occur due to bacterial growth in blocked sebum. Casual practices, like pimple-popping, aggravate infection and inflammation.

Reasons behind pimple and acne

There can be multiple reasons behind first outbreak of pimples and acnes, like, hormone, skin infection, diet, stress and environment. The most common among them is hormonal changes during puberty, when human skin loses its natural baby-softness. Sebum secretion increases and simultaneously increases cases of pimples, acnes.

Stress, it has been studied and observed, is one of the key factors that aggravate the situation and make the problem persists. It has been studied multiple times across the world that stress is linked to increased eruption of pimple and acne cysts. Among students in their adolescence, similar situations are observed just before their school tests – an event of significant stress. During summer vacations, when stress is absent or significantly low, eruption reduces considerably.

How does stress impact?

Multiple studies is being conducted to find out impact of stress on pimple and acne outgrowth and to understand how the impact works. It has been confirmed repeatedly that stress does aggravate the situation, causes flare up; however, it is not yet clearly evident how the impact works. Scientific studies and dermatological researches indicate 2 root causes; they are:

  • Increasing sebum secretion; and
  • Increasing susceptibility to inflammation and infection.

When under stress, sebaceous glands under our skins secrete more sebum. It makes skins oily, increasingly clogging hair follicles with dead skin cells. Stress also makes us susceptible to pathogens, Propionibacterium acnes, causing infections and inflammations. Clogged follicles also become prone to infections causing further flare up of pimples and acnes. So, managing your stress can help us control further flaring up of pimples and acnes.

How green tea can help in this regard?

Green tea is less processed leaves of Camellia sinensis or tea plants; it contains lots of active ingredients like, naturally occurring polyphenols. Drinking green tea increases polyphenol level in our body and this affects sebum production and impact severity of pimples and acnes. Also, anti-oxidants in green tea boost our immunity against common bacterial infections. EGCG, the most abundant catechins found in tea, is a key compound against acnes and pimples. Anti-microbial quality of catechins and other polyphenols help fighting acne-related bacterial infections.

Other than oral intake, topical use of green tea on skins with acne and pimple is also an effective treatment. Active compounds in green tea show good skin penetration and human skin is also capable of retaining majority of polyphenols available in green tea extracts.

So, start fighting pimples and acnes with daily brew of green tea. Regular drinking of green tea can give you no-scar naturally glowing skin. TE-A-ME Teas offers different variety of green tea; naturally mixed with different herbal ingredients for your holistic health.

Green Tea for Clean, Healthy and Glowing Skin

Drinking tea together is a harmless way to relax and build social bonhomie. Tea ceremonies are integral part of rich Japanese and Chinese culture for forging social. In India, China and Japan tea is also part of traditional medicines, because of its choicest health benefits. Though, depending on the variety of the tea these benefits vary; green tea is considered among the top of the line in terms of healthy goodness.

Why the health value of tea varies?

Except herbal varieties, all other kind of tea is made from un-oxidised leaves of tea plant; biological name is Camellia sinensis. Green teas are least processed compared to black teas; and that’s why green tea contains more natural anti-oxidants and bioactive compounds; that means more natural goodness. Let us learn about some of the evidence-backed benefits of green tea.

Some of the evidence-backed health benefits of green tea

1. Killing bacteria – Our oral cavities and biofilm like, dental plaque, often contain anaerobic gram-positive bacteria streptococcus mutans. It is true that there are different varieties of Streptococcus pathogens and not all of them are harmful. However, it is clinically proved that streptococcus mutans are the reasons behind various oral diseases and dental decays. Green tea contains catechins, a type of natural phenol and antioxidant. It inhibits growth of streptococcus mutans and reduces chances of dental decays.

2. Impact on type 2 diabetes – It is a condition when our pancreas cannot create enough insulin, negatively affecting our capacity to process glucose in blood. Type-2 diabetes is the most common form of diabetes and fast becoming an epidemic worldwide. Polysaccharides and polyphenols in green tea help reducing glucose level in blood. Also, epigallocatechin gallete or ECGC in green tea helps better absorption of glucose. Various controlled group experiments have shown impact of green tea and green tea extracts on controlling type-2 diabetes; especially in Asian countries like, India, Japan, Korea and China. A retrospective cohort study in Japan showed 33% reduction in risk of developing type-2 diabetes for consuming more than 6 cups of green tea daily.

3. Reducing cardiovascular – In today’s fast life keeping your heart healthy is a key challenge; especially when cardiovascular problems are impacting people of all ages. Polyphenols in green tea helps reducing heart-related problems in multiple ways. First of all, catechins and other other active polyphenols in green tea hinder enzymes causing biosynthesis of lipid and intestinal absorption of lipid; thus help improving lipid profile in blood stream. Secondly, Polyphenols activate nitric oxide within cells along interior surface of blood vessels and improve vascular tone. Catechins also prevent vascular inflammation.

4. Glowing screen – Dusts particles, pollution and UVs in sun light are causing havoc to your skin; result is acceleration of skin’s aging process. If not taken care of, your skin ends up looking older. Bioflavonoids in green tea and green tea extracts reduce sebum in skin, helps retaining skin glow. Antioxidants in green tea help countering oxidising agents in our body that causes aging and helps retaining natural look of your skin.
