With debate and trials underway to determine whether the anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine/chloroquine is safe and effective for Covid-19 patients, let’s cut through the bluster and take a look at the benefits the drug offers to those folks struggling with the detrimental impacts of Covid-19.
First, hydroxychloroquine aids in the cellular uptake of zinc, an essential function in preventing viral receptivity and transmission. According to the National Institutes of Health,
“We report that chloroquine is a zinc ionophore, which targets zinc to the lysosomes, and that the combination of zinc and chloroquine enhances their cytotoxicity and induces apoptosis in a human cancer cell model system.”
As an alternative to the drug, some doctors are recommending the use of natural products that also act as zinc ionophores. According to St. Luke’s Clinic, in Poland,
“Drugs used to fight coronavirus infection use the mechanism of zinc entering the cell. Also the use of natural substances, that act similarly to chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine, can be an additional weapon in the fight against infections.”
As such, research published by the American Chemical Society demonstrates the antioxidant polyphenol epigallocatechin-gallate (EGCG), a naturally-occurring compound found in green tea is such a substance. And you won’t find a more concentrated form of green tea and EGCG than in our Chi Tea green tea extracts.
Ultimate Green Tea extract, our original formula, is highly concentrated in the antioxidant epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG). Additionally, we synergistically combine our standardized green tea with astragalus and goji berries resulting in a potent yet nontoxic immune enhancer.
Additionally, our new Chi-Tox extract, which, in addition to green tea, contains a blend of powerful medicinal mushrooms, which, like hydroxychloroquine, are well-researched as safe and effective immune modulators.
Chi Tea green tea extracts offer a triple-play of proven antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antiviral wellness support.
Chi Tea Ultimate Green Tea
While brewed green tea leaf offers between 30-45% EGCG, our Chi Tea delivers as much as 62% 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.
