Gut/Immune connection; 80-95 % of our immune system resides in our GUT-so any disturbance here impacts our ability to fight off infections. If we are under a lot of stress this also has a dampening effect on our immune resistance. Each year new strains of viruses appear and with the increase of antibiotic resistance our ability to kill bacterial infections is significantly reduced. So, we need to build up our Immune systems from within.
Tea & Herb polyphenols are perhaps the most abundant and efficient anti-oxidants and are the star players in the immune system. A plethora of evidence suggest strong antioxidant potentials of their flavonoids, in particular, in containing or supressing the production of excess free radicals.
