Oolong Tea for Eczema
The benefits of this tea are countless, but when it comes to skin, it does wonder for treating the chronic Eczema condition, which is regarded as by rash, itching, redness, swelling, or an aggravated infection, in general terms.
Researchers have concluded that those who drink Oolong tea three times a day can cure eczema within six months. Most of the cases have shown significant improvement in a couple of days. This tea acts on as itching, redness, swelling, and if taken continually can even prevent scarring caused by eczema. This is all due to the high concentration of anti-allergenic anti-oxidants.
A study that took place in the year 2001, investigated the effects of Oolong tea on Eczema.
118 eczema patients participated in this research. Each of them would ask to drink oolong tea 3 times per day for a month. After the completion of the month, 74 patients felt moderate improvement in the condition of their skin. The patients then asked to drink the tea for 5 more months and after the mentioned period, 64 patients showed a great improvement.
The effects of Oolong tea were backed up with the presence of anti-allergic properties of tea polyphenols of Oolong tea. It was quite surprising that drinking a tea can cause such improvement in the condition of Eczema. Even this study cleared one more fact that drinking tea was much profitable than using tea-based creams.
But before we conclude anything, we would like you to know that Oolong is made up of the same tea plant as green tea. However, Oolong tea leaves are semi-fermented, unlike green tea leaves which are minimally fermented.
People who are facing eczema or similar condition but nothing has worked to improve their skin condition, try Oolong tea as this will fix the problem from within instead of just acting on the outer layer of the skin. This will give you better results if combined with medications (depending upon the severity of the condition).
