1 Cup Olive Tea – Secret to Boosting Your Immunity!
Concerned about the COVID 19 threat? Do you find yourself frequently washing your hands, wiping down surfaces and trying to avoid touching your face? We do too. But we wonder if the world can do more as a whole to boost immunity. And sometimes, you have to turn to nature for the answer.
One such natural method? Drink lots and lots of immune-boosting olive tea. This might not prevent you from contracting the virus, but we believe smart choices, no matter how small, would add up and give you a healthier immune system.
Drinking tea daily is a great way to increase your fluid intake for the tea. Did you know lots of water means the body can flush out toxins faster? Not only that, but water helps maintain a good metabolism and circulatory system too. Why drink tea if water would be just as good? Herbal teas, in general, help boost immunity and olive teas can have an edge over all the others. We’re here to explain how!
Olive leaf tea is mellow and soft with a multitude of health benefits. It packs the antioxidant punch of a heavyweight. The most beneficial tea is made from organic green olive leaves, quickly dried to maintain their health-enhancing properties.
The Magic of Oleuropein
Olive leaves contain a natural abundance of protective polyphenols, most notably oleuropein. First isolated over 100 years ago, oleuropein improves immune function and offers powerful antioxidant protection.
This active compound can be isolated from leaves by boiling them in water at an optimum temperature. Oleuropein also has immense antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal properties that help fight pathogens off. So it’s a very beneficial active compound. It is found in trace amounts in olive oil and the fruit. But is found most abundantly in leaves. This is a compound unique to olive leaves.
Olive leaf extract is also comprised of phytonutrients, such as flavonoids, plus a number of catechins, which all have an impressive antioxidant capacity; much higher than vitamin C and even more than green tea extract.
200% More Antioxidants than Green Tea
You know the way green tea is usually the tea benchmarked for its health properties. Well, olive teas have 200% more antioxidants than green tea and what’s more? Olive teas are 100% naturally caffeine-free.
What do antioxidants do? Antioxidants are molecules that fight free radicals in your body.
Free radicals are compounds that can cause harm if their levels become too high in your body. They’re linked to multiple illnesses, including diabetes, heart disease, and cancer.
Antioxidants also help keep the skin looking fresh due to their ability to protect cells and tissue from oxidative damage.
Vitamin C and Other Nutrients
Vitamin C is widely recognised as an immune-boosting compound. Vitamin C is perhaps the most popular supplement taken to protect against infection due to its important role in immune health. In fact, a lack of vitamin C can even make you more prone to getting sick.
Olive leaves contain about 4 times the Vitamin C found in green teas. This makes olive teas a better source of Vitamin C.
Lastly, olive leaf extract contains essential nutrients, such as iron, zinc, selenium, chromium, vitamin C, beta-carotene and a wide range of amino acids.
