Green Tea has recently garnered a lot of attention for the antioxidant polyphenols that it contains. Both oral and topical administration of green tea polyphenols in human models has shown their ability to prevent signs of ultraviolet-induced damage. Topical treatment of human skin with green tea polyphenols has been shown to prevent the DNA damage that leads to skin cancer. Clearly, green tea is a powerful anti-oxidant, and there is good evidence to support its use in the general population to help prevent photoaging and to decrease the risk of skin cancer.

Green Tea Study Highlights:

* Recent studies suggest that "tea polyphenols are strong antioxidants, more powerful than Vitamin C and Vitamin E"

* Studies further suggest that tea polyphenols have an anti-inflamatory effect. "Topical green tea polyphenols reduced UV-induced erythema and sunburn cell formation in human skin."

* Studies suggest that topical antioxidants "should supplement the natural antioxidant protection present in the skin and provide supplemental reserves as oxidative stress depletes antioxidant stores."
