Boost Your Immune System
Green Tea provides disease-fighting antioxidants (polyphenols and flavonoids) that protect against free radicals and help destroy them.
One study showed that catechins, a particular type of polyphenols in tea, kill certain viruses. Another Harvard study showed that people who drank 5 cups a day of black tea for two weeks had 10 times more virus-fighting interferon in their blood than others who drank a placebo hot drink.
Green Tea is rich in L-theanine, an amino acid thought to help enhance immunity that’s found in both regular and decaf versions.
