Grapeseed Oil – Extracted from the seeds of grapes, Grapeseed Oil is high in omega 6 fatty acids and vitamin E, which are nutrients needed for proper brain function and the fight against free radicals in our bodies. However, an important thing to note is that too high levels of omega 6 is bad for the body as omega 6 is pro-inflammatory, and as our modern day diets usually contain higher levels of omega 6 than omega 3, you would want to ensure your intake of omega 3 and 6 is balanced, especially for people with conditions that might worsen with pro-inflammatory supplements.
Green Tea – Green Tea is well-recognized for its antioxidizing properties and as it can be ingested, it can work its magic internally and externally for our well-being. As a beverage, green tea is packed full of polyphenols, powerful antioxidants that can reduce the free radicals in our bodies, hence slowing down the ageing process and help in the prevention of other ailments from arising. The same antioxidants can also help lighten dark eye bags or skin marks when applied externally. For those who are interested in weight loss, some studies have also found that green tea helps increase the metabolic rate in the short term.
