Vitamin C Gives Staying Power To Green Tea Antioxidants

Adding citrus juices enable to green tea enables more of its antioxidants to remain after digestion.
A study found that citrus juices enable more of green tea's unique antioxidants to remain after simulated digestion, making the pairing even healthier than previously thought.

The study compared the effect of various beverage additives on catechins, naturally occurring antioxidants found in tea. Results suggest that complementing green tea with either citrus juices or vitamin C likely increases the amount of catechins available for the body to absorb.

"Although these results are preliminary, I think it's encouraging that a big part of the puzzle comes down to simple chemistry," said Mario Ferruzzi, assistant professor of food science at Purdue University and the study's lead author. Read more

Remember, though, that adding milk to tea reduces its health benefits.

A good diet helps breast growth, but it isn't enough usually to cause breast growth by itself.

will using s breast massager have the same affect of doing it yourself if I use the combination of oils you suggested?

Caitlin MacKenna said...

The combination of oils will make the breast massage even more effective, but they aren't necessary to receive benefits.

I've written several articles on making lotions and oils.

i'm a 16 year old girl and i'll like to know if i can do the breast massage
without taking the herbs. I'm afraid they may have some side effects
for someone my age.

Caitlin MacKenna said...

Yes, you can. In my article "Natural Breast Enlargement for Teenage Girls," I don't recommend that girls you age take herbs.

Do you have to do the massage topless or does it matter?

All massage is less effective when done through clothing.
