Why green tea is a virus countermeasure

There is criticism that the low number of corona infections in Japan is due to the low number of tests. But then the number of deaths must be high. However, not all stores/restaurants are currently closed in Japan. So this criticism is not correct. Japan has always taught children how to gargle and wash their hands from old days. In the samurai era, it was customary to wash feet before entering the house.

I think such habits are a big factor, but here I would like to briefly introduce the effects of green tea. I have focused on the research of many Japanese researchers from past to present. Unfortunately, Japanese tea is rare in the world, so few foreign researchers study it.

So, here I introduce the anti-virus measures that we devised based on that. This is prevention, not treatment. It is not a sterilization but an inactivation. Sterilizing the whole house is not feasible. However, it is possible and easy way for the virus to be inactivated when it attaches to the human body. Improving immunity is also a fundamental method. Unfermented tea, a characteristic of Japanese green tea, can do the following three things.

  1. Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), which is a kind of catechin, easily binds to proteins and is about 1/100 the size of a virus. EGCG quickly covers up the viral spikes entirely and disables the means of transmission. This is useful in the upper respiratory tract.

  2. Epigallocatechin (EGC), a type of catechin, generates hydrogen peroxide, activates macrophages that prey on viruses, and enhances immunity.

  3. Theanine produces glutathione in the body, strengthens immune cells in the body, reduces and restores vitamins. This is an excellent immune effect. Of these, 1) can be taken orally, gargled and sprayed. The other two are taken orally and work by being absorbed from the small intestine. I decide to teach the correct knowledge regarding Japanese green tea to restaurants in the world by e-learning, and I am also preparing for publishing of eBook for consumers.
