Weight Loss & Acne Cures

A while back I put together a list of the wonderful things tea can do for your health. I guess it's time to update that list. The Daily Yomiuri reported recently about a "fat-busting oolong tea" to be released next month by Suntory Ltd.

The trick here, or so the makers say, is that the Black Oolong Tea OTPP contains twice the amount of polymerized polyphenols, which are thought to reduce fat. It's a very brief piece, but you can read it here.

Of course, all the "fat-busting oolong tea" in the world isn't going to do squat for your acne, which is why you should be drinking green tea - or taking it in pill form or rubbing it on your face in a topical cream. Or at least so saith this article - Green Tea And Acne - in an Indian newspaper. The article is written by a gent who runs a Web site that sells acne prevention products, so make of that what you will.
