  • Polyphenols, potent plant antioxidants, are believed to give GREEN tea its immune-boosting effects. The polyphenol antioxidants in tea are best absorbed when drinking it on an empty stomach.
  • One laboratory study suggested that a particular type of polyphenols called catechins may kill influenza viruses.
  • To maximize benefits and minimize bitterness, use just-below-boiling water and steep green tea no more than a minute or two.
  • The amino acid that's responsible for immune boost, L-theanine, is abundant in both black and green tea—decaf versions have it, too.
  • 5 cups a day of immune boosting tea is recommended. Studies show that this amount may be effective in preventing and keeping cancer from reoccurring. *Please note that there is currently no absolute cancer cure. But drinking tea as part of a healthy diet may be worth consuming.
