A strong, healthy immune system is necessary for our body and brain to function well”–Paul Ebeling

People across the world continue to use herbs for treating all kinds of ailments including headaches, the common cold, and digestive problems. They also use herbs and spices in teas, tisanes, and soups to boost their immunity and avoid getting sick.

Eating nutritious foods, exercising, and avoiding bad habits, such as smoking and excessive drinking, help promote good immune function. You can also easily add herbs to your eating plan for building immunity against diseases.

The use of plants and herbal tea to boost immune system function is part of the Indian Ayurvedic medicine and Traditional Chinese Medicine systems. But even Western medicine doctors acknowledge the role herbs play in warding off illnesses and preventing diseases.

1 of the best immune boosting herbs researched is Green Tea, it contains active ingredients that are beneficial to health and for strengthening the immune system.

Green tea (Camellia sinensis) is a well-known plant with immune-boosting powers. It is believed to originate in China and is widely grown and produced in places like India, Japan, Sri Lanka, and the US. The tea is made from the leaves and buds of the Camellia sinensis, and is one of the most commonly consumed teas in the world.

Although it can take some time to get used to green tea’s strong, grassy flavors with earthy undertones, that should not stop you from taking advantage of its health benefits. The herb has traditionally been used for regulating metabolism, weight loss, maintaining youthful skin, promoting brain and heart health, and immune system support.

The active beneficial ingredients in green tea are the polyphenol antioxidants known as catechins, flavonoids, proteins, and fatty acids. Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) is an important catechin. 1 of multiple studies done on green tea immunity benefits found that EGCG in green tea strengthens immune system function because it protects against oxidative stress caused by free radicals.

Research done on EGCG suggests that this particular antioxidant has a dramatic effect on T cell functions. T cells play a critical role in the development of autoimmune inflammatory diseases. Interestingly, EGCG was found to be a potential therapeutic agent for preventing and improving autoimmune diseases linked to T cells.
