Sweden's most experienced hair clinic

Green tea is healthy and also promotes our hair by increasing blood circulation in the scalp. Green tea is capable of breaking down plaque in our blood vessels, which promotes blood flow to almost all organs, including the scalp.

Green tea is loaded with antioxidants that destroy the free radicals that prevent proper blood circulation, thus helping to promote hair growth. EGCG stands for "Epigallocatechin gallate" and is one of tea's many catechins (antioxidant group). EGCG is the catechin found in green tea. EGCG is an antioxidant and there are studies that show that EGCG (and possibly other substances in green tea) helps to prevent the breakdown of adrenaline and noradrenaline in the body (two hormones), which in turn may increase liver fat metabolism and mitochondrial energy consumption. Mitochondria are responsible for converting nutrients into energy in cells. So feel free to drink 2 cups of green tea every day. Good to know is that you should not expect results immediately. Green tea is both delicious and has many health benefits that make it a beneficial drink.


Other good properties of green tea:
  • Green tea contains a large amount of polyphenols and antioxidants that protect and repair our cells during illness, ageing and general deterioration.
  • The anti-inflammatory properties of green tea stimulate hair growth.
  • Green tea helps to release stress and combat depression which is also one of the main causes of hair loss.
  • There are natural catechins in green tea.


How to brew a cup of green tea.

A good tea is brewed from good ingredients, so organic green tea is preferable.

When brewing green tea, it is important that the water is not too hot, otherwise there is a risk of burning the tea leaves and making it taste bitter. Boil the water and let it cool to between 75-80 degrees before adding the tea. Dosage for loose tea is about one teaspoon of tea leaves per cup. How long to steep depends on how strong you want the tea to be, but about 2-3 minutes should be enough.
