Green Tea Component Prevents Ebola Reproduction

Green tea is a well-recognized health food, the biggest benefits of which appear to reside in its antioxidant powers that fight and may even prevent cell damage. For some time we’ve know that EGCG, a principal polyphenol found in green tea, can be of great importance in completely inhibiting certain viruses from reproducing themselves (including the avian flu).

Also, EGCG has been reported to be a “strong inhibitor” of HIV replication and to possess antiviral activity against Epstein-Barr virus. So it isn’t completely out of the blue that a very recent study has found that EGCG can impede the Ebola virus from duplicating itself under laboratory conditions. This could make it a crucial nutrient for supporting your immune defense system.
