Today and now, Black tea is consumed all over the world. It is often chilled or hot.
To be a tasty beverage, black tea also offers several health benefits. Some researchers are ongoing and have been searching for a very promising key antioxidant in tea.
The specific antioxidants that is found in Black tea, Oolong, and Pu-erh include polyphenols, which contain “theaflavins” (which is formed during the oxidations process of tea). Theaflavins promote an increase in overall health, such helps to strengthen and enhance the function of the immune system to fight off any viral infections such as influenza and the common cold, as it contains anti-inflammatory properties.
The COVID-19 is an illness where the patients find it difficult to breathe. Therefore, theaflavins it is found in black tea from the Camellia Sinensis plant could be a promising piece to start developing against COVID-19 treatments.
But of course, Prevention is better than cure and knowledge is power. Then you know you have one more intervention to utilize to help prevent or fight off this virus. So, perhaps you can use your new tea time to relax and try to find a comfortable moment.
I am enthusiastic to hear that Camellia Sinensis(tea plant) continues to contribute to science and medical professionals working on building a medicine that will help the world respond to COVID-19. During the interval pandemic, keeping up a regular tea practice is the simple fact that it is certainly a pleasurable beverage and explores some of the health benefits of tea.
The Greek philosopher Hippocrates explained it well in his famous phrase “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food”.
As with any tea or herbs, please consult with your healthcare provider before drinking any infusion due to potential allergies and serious drug interactions, or if you are pregnant.
