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.
Considered to be a sole component of the Cuban biotechnology boom, this anti-viral drug called Interferon Alfa-2B is produced in China, by Cuban-Chinese joint venture ChangHeber.
Cuba has already sent an emergency assembly of doctors to fight the coronavirus in Italy, while already working alongside 37 countries worldwide that have confirmed cases of COVID-19.
The component L-theanine (found in Green Tea) is broken down in the liver to create ethylamine, a molecule that initiates the response of an immune system element called the gamma-delta T cell. The T cells in the blood prompt the release of interferon, a key part of the body's chemical defense against many types of bacteria, viral, fungal and parasitic infections.
An experiment using human volunteers, showed that immune system blood cells from tea drinkers responded five times faster than the others.
