The healing Benefits of Banana Leaves
April 23, 2018
Banana leaves contain large amounts of polyphenols such as epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), which is also found in green tea. Polyphenols are natural antioxidants found in many plant based foods. EGCG belongs to the family of catechins. It contains 3 phenol rings and has very strong antioxidant properties.
It is believed this protects our cells from oxidative damage from free radicals. Free radicals are produced by the stressors that our modern life puts on our bodies. A number of chronic diseases have been associated with free radical damage, including cancer, arteriosclerosis, heart diseases, and accelerated aging. EGCG can protect the DNA in the human cells from ultraviolet and visible radiation-induced damage and is effective in promoting fat oxidation and lowering body weight. So the banana leaf being packed with EGCG is a very beneficial ingredient in a skin rejuvenation treatment (AromaSpaRetreat).
