With the link between Covid-19 risk and poor metabolic health becoming increasingly clear with each passing day, it’s also clear that the best defense against this coronavirus is to enhance your diet and lifestyle accordingly to lose weight and enhance 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.”
The doctors go on to describe how obesity reduces the ability to resist viral infection.
“It is not the virus itself that kills us, but the overwhelming inflammation that results from an immune system already on high alert. Obesity and poor metabolic health cause both increased levels of inflammation and immune suppression, escalating the risk of severe illness and death from COVID-19. Obesity is linked to an impaired ability to fight viral infections, increased viral shedding and death from seasonal flu, and reduced effectiveness of vaccines.”
Together with losing weight, we need to supplement our diets with proven and effective immune builders. That’s where green tea comes in. Rich in antiviral compounds known as “catechins,” green tea provides proven protection from viral transmission, as pointed out in a National Institutes of Health report, Green Tea Catechins: Their Use in Treating and Preventing Infectious Diseases,
“These catechins have been shown to demonstrate a variety of antimicrobial properties, both to organisms affected and in mechanisms used. Consumption of green tea has been shown to distribute these compounds and/or their metabolites throughout the body, which allows for not only the possibility of treatment of infections but also the prevention of infections.”
Our Ultimate Green Tea extract is one of the most potent sources of catechins (EGCG) available. Many people simply add a dropperful to their favorite tea or beverage to boost their nutritional benefit. And our Chi-Tox Tea detox formula blends green tea with several varieties of mushroom extracts, known for their powerful immune-boosting properties.
Additionally, all our extracts are caffeine-free, alcohol-free, fluoride-free, and pesticide-free.
Chi Tea Ultimate Green Tea
While brewed green tea leaf offers between 30-45% EGCG, our Chi Tea delivers as much as 72% EGCG, with more consistent potency as a standardized, liquid extract. Additionally, Chi Tea is fortified with powerful botanicals. And Chi Tea is so concentrated, one dropperful provides the antioxidant equivalent of 10-15 cups of brewed green tea.
Chi-Tox Tea – a standardized, liquid extract – has been scientifically formulated so that all of its ingredients synergistically work at detoxifying the liver’s brilliantly designed filtration system. Formulated with our green tea as a base, Chi-Tox is further enhanced with medicinal mushrooms, lycium (goji berry), schisandra, milk thistle, skullcap, and licorice.

These days it’s wise to do whatever we can to keep our immune systems fine tuned. Beyond taking care of personal sanitation, getting enough rest, and keeping our stress in check, it’s essential we incorporate potent antiviral supplements into our daily routine. That’s where our Chi Tea Immune Super Pack comes in.
Featuring our Ultimate Green Tea and Chi-Tox extracts, Chi Tea Immune Super Pack is super-charged with proven antiviral compounds. According to the National Institutes of Health, “Of all catechins present in green tea, epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) is most powerful in preventing viral transmission.”
