Tea can improve eyesight and drink regularly, which can reduce the incidence of cataracts.
Tea contains a lot of vitamins, among which vitamin c, vitamin b2, and vitamin e have certain effects on improving eyesight.
Vitamin a can participate in the regeneration of rhodopsin of rod-shaped cells in the eye retina and maintain normal visual function; while vitamin c and vitamin b2 can prevent cataracts.
2. Tea can lower blood lipids
Experiments have proved that tea can effectively reduce blood lipids.
Tea contains a lot of tea polyphenols and tea polysaccharides, tea pigments and vitamin C. Tea polyphenols or a collection of tea polyphenols have the effect of lowering blood lipids from time to time.
It can inhibit the synthesis of lipoproteins and accelerate the decomposition of lipids. Tea polysaccharides can change the body's protein cholesterol content, and can also organize arteriosclerosis.
The aromatic compounds contained in tea can also dissolve fat, remove turbidity and remove greasiness, and prevent fat from accumulating in the body.
In addition, it also contains vitamins B1, C and caffeine, which can promote gastric juice secretion, help digestion and reduce fat.

3. Tea can delay aging
It is scientifically proven that tea has obvious effects of delaying aging.
Tea is one of the natural plants with the strongest ability to scavenge free radicals.
Tea polyphenols have inhibitory effects on various oxidases, can efficiently scavenge free radicals, and are the fastest effective antioxidant pathway. At the same time, they can inhibit the generation of free radicals and activate the body's antioxidant enzyme system;
Studies have shown that the antioxidant properties of tea polyphenols are significantly better than vitamin E, the anti-aging effect is 18 times stronger than vitamin E, and it has synergistic effects with vitamins C and E.
We can simply use tea leaves to soak and wash our face or mix honey to make a facial mask to get the effects of removing greasy facial oil, constricting pores, sterilizing, and resisting skin damage caused by ultraviolet radiation.
We can even drink a few bowls of tea every day to remove free radicals in the body.
