If you have allergies, or haven’t noticed, its one of those times of the year that pollen content in the air is very high.
This has people with scratchy throats, sniffling noses, and uncomfortable sinuses.
Several years ago, Japanese researchers conducted laboratory tests, and found a compound in green tea that actually blocks certain cells from producing allergic reactions.
This compound is found in Green Teas, the less processed form of teas. White Tea, what many refer to as raw tea since it is the youngest form of the tea leaf, is prized for its high antioxidant properties, and is often chosen over Green Tea for avoiding colds
Maybe a balance between the two will help allergy sufferers through the season. To read a synopsis of the research, visit the ACS Website.
