Wu-Long Tea – Helps Reverse the Signs of Aging

As we grow older, the effect of free radicals takes its toll on the body mainly in the form of aging. Actually in the past 50 years, free radical research has strongly concluded that free radicals are a major factor in aging and the visible signs that go along with it. Other diseases related to aging and caused in whole or part by free radical damage are cancer, Alzheimer's dementia, arthritis and inflammatory disease and heart/artery disease.
These free radicals are produced by stress, pollution, eating processed foods, chemical additives in many of the foods we eat etc..
The damaging process is certainly a gradual one. day in - day out. Many of the visible signs of aging, such as dark spots and wrinkling of the skin, have been strongly linked to increased levels of free radicals invading our body...
Antioxidants are the best defense against free radicals. Fortunately you can take action to reduce the amount of these nasty, damaging substances in your body without drugs.
One of the best and enjoyable methods is to drink Wu-long tea (oolong).
Wu Long tea is rich in these 3 substances: catechins, theaflavins and thearubigins. These substances act as antioxidants, which destroy free radicals and are completely natural. Be advised, grocery store versions of Wulong or any teas have much lower levels of these antioxidants because the leaves have been extremely processed. The oxidation process reduces the catachin level.
To get maximum potency and value of Wu Long tea I suggest you find a good online tea store and not waste your money on pre-packaged name brand type wu-long tea.
You are doing yourself a favor every time you drink a cup….slowly undoing the effects of aging. Also it's nice to know there are no side effects to drinking Wu-long tea; it tastes great and is good for your soul!
