Thanks for checking out this video today.
Just doing a quick video on green tea and Candida. I’ve got a question here from a lady
in London called Sara. Sara has emailed me saying, Eric, is green tea effective with
yeast infections? Green tea is a really good drink to have if
you’ve got Candida for multiple reasons. One reason why I like green tea is because of
its good antioxidant effects. Antioxidants are very important properties that many different
high quality natural foods and medicines can confer on your body like quenching what we
call “free radical damage.” Spend maybe a bit of time on Google. I’m not going to tell
you what antioxidants are and what free radical quenching is and things like that.
Foods which have got very powerful antioxidant properties about them are like blueberries,
green tea, avocados. There are different foods like that which have got a very good ability
to quench potential damage in the body that could lead to things like cancer.
Green tea has got very powerful antioxidants called epigallocatechins, ECGs. These particular
antioxidants have got a very good ability to actually bust up biofilming Candida. There
are various research papers I’ve been reading that these epigallocatechins have a nice ability
to actually bust up the existing biofilm of Candida and prevent biofilm really from happening.
There is some potential there for beneficial use of one to two cups of a good quality green
tea per day when you’ve got a yeast infection. The best green tea to drink is the Matcha
Tea. Dr. Joseph Mercola speaks about Matcha Tea as well. Matcha Tea is a high quality
Japanese green tea. It’s almost like a bright emerald green color when you look at it, so
I love green tea. Particularly when I go out eating good quality Japanese food at a restaurant,
I’ll ask for a quality green tea. Green tea is a bit like wine. You’ve got the
budget stuff. You’ve got the intermediate range like $10 a bottle or something, and
then you’ve got the top end. You’ve got the expensive wines and expensive green teas.
Be prepared to pay a lot of money for a high quality green tea, particularly a Matcha Tea.
When you drink one good cup of Matcha Tea per day, you’re really helping your body to
build a powerful immune defense. You’re helping to reduce the potential for cancer. Plus you’re
actually helping to bust up any Candida biofilm. One or two cups of good green tea per day.
I love green tea and I often drink it in the afternoons when I have my patients coming
into my practice. I’ll have one good cup of green tea in the afternoon. I love Matcha
Tea. It’s expensive, but it’s definitely worth it. So if you want to have a really powerful
effect on immune function, think about drinking one good cup of green tea per day.
Thanks for tuning in.
