If there’s one thing learned through the Covid experience is the importance of keeping one’s immune system tuned up, despite the lack guidance from health officials about the role of nutrition in boosting immunity.
writing in the Boston Globe,
“While some otherwise healthy individuals with COVID-19 are hospitalized, the vast majority of hospitalized patients are overweight or suffer from a diet-related chronic disease such as diabetes, heart disease, lung disease, or cancer. Adjusting for other risk factors, Americans with obesity have a more than four times higher risk of hospitalization, while those with severe obesity (a body mass index of over 40 versus 30 for obesity) have a more than six times higher risk.”
Bronwyn Fitz, MD, an integrative gynecologist board certified in Integrative Medicine, explains why green tea is so essential for enhancing one’s nutritional and immune profile,
“Green tea is a powerhouse medical food with antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-viral properties. It contains numerous compounds called catechins, including EGCG, which are sources of these beneficial properties. There are numerous prospective, randomized, placebo controlled trials that demonstrate green tea or green tea catechins can prevent cold and flu.
That’s where Chi Tea Immune Super Pack comes in. The pack includes our original Ultimate Green Tea, and our new Chi-Tox, for a one-two punch of proven immune boosting energy.
Ultimate Green Tea contains 72% concentration of the powerful catechin epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) which, according to the National Institutes of Health, “Of all catechins present in green tea, EGCG is most powerful in preventing viral transmission.”
Ultimate Green Tea is additionally blended with extracts of Goji, Lo Han Quo, Astragalus and Licorice root for additional nutritional support. Stevia extract gives Ultimate Green Tea a pleasant taste.
We developed Chi-Tox Tea as an immune booster to meet today’s demands of enhanced wellness.
