Herpes simplex is a chronic viral infection that appears periodically on our mouth when we are nervous and stressed or it can manifest itself as genital herpes. Unfortunately, it cannot be cured, but scientists have revealed that it can be effectively treated – among others – with Green Tea. The powerful antioxidants are able to deactivate herpes simplex virus Type 1 and Type 2 as well.
Green Tea helps prevent herpes outbreaks or relieves its symptoms in two ways:
– By consuming Green Tea daily
Thanks to the compounds, such as polyphenols, flavenoids and catechins the beverage has antibacterial and antiviral properties.
Beside this the Green Tea antioxidants can boost the immune system and consequently prevent the virus from becoming active.
Finally the Green Tea can fight against psychological causes (stress and anxiety) as it has calming and relaxing effects. L-theanine contained in Green Tea stimulates the production of serotonin in the brain, so it acts as natural anti-depressive.
– By using the brewed tea to make compresses
The beverage can be applied topically to the affected areas. Due to anti-inflammatory and antibacterial impact, Green Tea can provide for the better removal of the outbreaks.
No more long-lasting uncomfortable feelings for herpes sufferers!
