Whether you sip it hot or over ice, hibiscus tea is loaded with flavonoids that prevent plaque buildup in the heart enough to cut your risk of high blood pressure and heart disease by 50%, adding four healthy years to your life, say Cleveland Clinic researchers. And as an added bonus, polyphenos in the tea also boost skin hydration to reduce the risk of premature wrinkling by 58%. To get the benefits, I recommend sipping two or three cups per day, letting each tea bag steep for at least 5 minutes.
Youthful radiant skin really does start from within! The key? Shoring up your stores of the healthy fat gamma-linolenic acid (GLA). The nutrient keeps cellular membranes from drying out, so skin stays smooth and supple. It can even help soothe conditions like eczema and psoriasis that tend to flare up at this time of the year. In fact, Italian scientists found supplementing with GLA cuts eczema symptoms by up to 90%. I advise taking two capsules of UNI KEY Health GLA-90 twice daily.
