Green Tea Has Therapeutic Potential Against COVID-19: Why Not Use It In Medicine?


“More than 30 research papers published between 2000 and 2022 have confirmed that a chemical component found in green tea can help fight various types of coronaviruses, including variants of COVID-19.” [Source:]


The green tea extract epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) has long been a key component of the cutting-edge micronutrient program designed by scientists at the Dr. Rath Research Institute. Green tea polyphenols have potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties which contribute to their anticancer effects, cardiovascular benefits, and support of overall health. In addition to COVID-19, further conditions for which green tea and its extracts may be helpful include rheumatoid arthritis, Parkinson’s disease, and Alzheimer’s disease.

Other plant extracts have also shown benefits against COVID-19. In a recent study, patients who were administered curcumin and quercetin after testing positive for early-stage coronavirus infection were found to clear the virus at a significantly faster rate, compared to those receiving standard care alone. Here too, the Dr. Rath Research Institute has been a scientific leader in the research of these two plant extracts for preventive and therapeutic purposes.

To read how the United States Patent Office recently awarded the Dr. Rath Research Institute a patent on a game-changing micronutrient formula that can simultaneously inhibit multiple cellular mechanisms of infectivity caused by coronavirus, its variants, and mutants, see this article on our website.
