Soothe Inflammation of the tonsils with Green Tea

Tonsillitis can be experienced by anyone both children and adults. There are various ways one can do to reduce the inflammation of the tonsils is experienced, one with green tea consumption.

Tonsils are located at the back of the mouth, lining the sides of the throat. If there are bacteria or viruses that infect, the tonsils get sick that often accompanied by irritation, redness, inflammation and itchy throat.

Yet the study found green tea may help fight bacteria and viruses, thereby reducing inflammation and calming irritation there, as quoted from Livestrong, Saturday (03/24/2012).

Researchers from Iowa State University said that green tea contains catechins, the antioxidants that can improve the immune system's response to the release of special proteins that attack viruses and bacteria.

Green tea may help enhance immune function to fight bacterial and viral infections that can cause swollen tonsils. And researchers from the University of Maryland Medical Center recommends the consumption of decaffeinated green tea to boost immunity.

Besides green tea can also act as an anti-inflammatory and potentially reduce pain in the tonsils. Antioxidant epigallocatechin gallate or EGCG may help reduce inflammation in the body including the tonsils.

And green tea has properties to inhibit bacterial growth and helps to reduce and neutralize the bacteria that is trapped in pockets of the tonsils that can cause infection.

Recommended to mix one teaspoon of green tea with 1 cup boiling water and allowed to stand for 10 minutes. To maximize the benefits the immune system and increase the consumption of recommended 2-4 cups of green tea every day.
