The health benefits of green tea are numerous: it is a natural anti-stress agent, rich in vitamin C and antioxidants (polyphenols). What else? What more can you ask of it? Can immunity be hidden in a green tea bag? If this cocktail of benefits of green tea optimises several human functions, it would seem that it is also an ally for our immune system. Why exactly? We tell you all about the benefits of green tea on our immune system and our health.
Does green tea strengthen our immune system?
Yes, in addition to a healthy and active lifestyle, green tea is useful for our immune system and for boosting our cells.
Why is green tea good for our health?
Green tea has interesting properties for our immune system:
Its polyphenol content (and in particular EGCG) gives it several beneficial properties. Indeed, these active ingredients are known for their antioxidant properties but also for their role on our immune system. They effectively promote immunity against foreign pathogens and help fight against the action of free radicals.
On the other hand, it protects body tissues and cells against oxidative damage.
It is also a support for our metabolism.
The antioxidant properties of green tea
Very rich in polyphenols, green tea is a powerful antioxidant. Antioxidants are essential to our well-being: they help prevent many diseases by protecting our body against the action of free radicals and premature ageing of cells. Antioxidants are therefore useful to our body for our long-term health and well-being.
In short, together with a balanced and varied diet rich in good nutrients and regular exercise, green tea helps to boost our immune system naturally. This is why a tea break is always a good idea. Even more so when we're talking about an organic green tea from Kusmi. Isn't that right?
Why take care of your immune system?
The immune system is made up of cells and organs that work together to protect the body and respond to infections and diseases. Taking care of your immune system on a daily basis is essential for your well-being: to avoid cold spells in winter, moments of fatigue in everyday life and to keep your energy and vitality up. How can you boost your immune system naturally? It's much easier than you think: sport, fresh and varied food on your plate... and why not a bag of vitamin-enriched tea?
Focus on matcha tea
Sencha green tea, Gunpowder, Genmaicha..., no matter where your green tea comes from, it is very likely that they all have more or less the same properties and the same virtues. Is matcha powder significantly different? The richness of matcha in catechins, and more specifically in EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate) would make this green tea a little more interesting for your immune system. Indeed, this powerful antioxidant is present in matcha in much higher quantities than in other green teas. Good news for aficionados of matcha latte, or iced matcha.
