“Green tea is known to contain antiviral components that prevent influenza infection,” wrote Hiroshi Yamada, MD, PhD, of the University of Shizuoka, Japan.
Yamada and his colleagues analyzed questionnaires from 2,050 students, ages six to 13 years, in elementary schools in Kikugawa City. The questionnaires included information about their consumption of green tea.
Chopped fresh ginger in honey, green tea, cayenne pepper, olive leaf capsules, astragalus pills and oil of oregano gel-caps will help prevent and shorten spells of rhinovirus and influenza. To make it through a flu epidemic successfully, arm yourselves with these natural remedies. ~~M-J de Mesterton
