Green tea strengthens the immune system.It contains flavonoids and polyphenols which help in strengthening the immune system, making your body become stronger and fight against infections.
Registered dietitian Patricia Bannan cites a study that showed "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 other who drank a placebo hot drink. Both black tea and green tea are rich in L-theanine, an amino acid thought to help enhance immunity that’s found in both regular and decaf versions."
