Supporting one’s immune system is vital when combating minor illnesses such as colds and the flu. An immune system refers not to one organ in particular, but to several organs and processes of the body that provide resistance to infection and toxins. The thymus, bone marrow and lymph nodes all play their part in immune system activity.
Numerous Teas, particularly Herbal Teas, have close associations with the improvement of the immune system. Ginger Root Tea, for example, has high concentrations of vitamin C, a substance renowned for its beneficial effect on the immune system. 1 gram of ginger daily may also reduce nausea and vomiting in those already unwell, according to a study conducted at the University of Maryland Medical Center, USA.
Furthermore, a relative of Ginger, Turmeric, can help in the fight. The Health Benefits of Turmeric Tea have been peer-reviewed and published in over 5,600 biomedical study reports. According to many of these reports, Turmeric Tea has antimicrobial, antibacterial, antifungal and antiseptic qualities. It can reduce viral replication by approximately 90% in laboratory cells infected with influenza varieties, according to a study published in a 2009 edition of “Emerging Infectious Diseases”.
But that doesn’t rule out so-called “real” Teas (Teas to originate from the Camellia sinensis plant), which also have their own capabilities. Pu erh Black Tea contains an abundance of vitamins, minerals and other antioxidants, including Vitamins B1, B2, C and E, as well as potassium, phosphorus, calcium, magnesium, lysine, arginine, histidine and cysteine, and linoleic and linolenic acids. Many of these components can support the immune system, while others can support one’s health in different ways.
