Green Tea

Boost Your Immune System with Green Tea

Green tea has been used for centuries for its amazing health benefits.

Among myriad advantages for drinking tea, both black and green tea are proven to prevent both influenza A and B, as well as the common cold virus.

Studies have shown that using a green tea gargle twice daily can reduce your susceptibility to flu by up to 87%!  WOW!

Such a simple way to help get well and stay well this cold and flu season, and so easy to add into your daily routine.  Drink at least one cup every day to help prevent illness, and drink more if/when you DO become ill.

Simply steep tea bag in very hot water, add lemon and/or honey if desired, and stir.  Not only is the tea helpful in fighting infection, but the warm tea is soothing, helps break up mucus, opens airways, and the lemon and honey are good for you, too.

  1. Wow! That is amazing! God is so good to give us everything our body needs! My husband drinks 3 cups of green tea everyday….never knew how good it was for you, but he definitely fights off a cold much quicker than the rest of us. Might need to start adding green tea to the rest of our daily diet. Thanks for the post! Off to research!

    Do you know if it’s safe to drink during pregnancy? I have read conflicting info in the past. But, I do love green tea!

    • Hey Erica. I’ve read conflicting things, too. I just wait to drink it until after the first trimester. 🙂

        Thanks Brandy. I just found out a week ago that baby number 6 is on the way and there are always new things to learn 🙂

        • Ahhh!!! CONGRATULATIONS, ERICA!!!!!!!!!

            Thanks Brandy! We are keeping it a secret from family for the time being. I am too tired to deal with any negative comments right now lol. It’s nice to know that there are plenty of people to celebrate life with 🙂

  3. I lived on green tea for 3 years. No, I wasn’t purposely starving myself. I had a sinus infection that would not go away, and the mucus would end up in my stomach. Nothing would sit right in my stomach but green tea would. (Turns out it wasn’t a sinus infection but that I’m allergic to fungi and sensitive to wheat). The tea was great at breaking up the mucus, which is why I drank it.

  4. I wanted to add that Ive recently found out that Green Tea is also helpful with boosting metabolism. Im all about that! At 40 years old and trying to watch my “girlish” figure, I need all the help I can get. Along with the added benefit of the antioxidents in it. 🙂 Congratualtions on the new baby coming your way.

    • Thanks for sharing that, Lana!! It’s true. I’m not far from 40 myself, and I have gained more weight with this pregnancy than I have with any other…..and eating the same amount of food I always do during pregnancies……Which means it MUST be my metabolism. (It couldn’t be the brownies, could it!?!) 😉

  5. Are there any guidelines for buying green tea? Brands, organic, etc. Or is it all mostly the same? Thanks!
