The nights are drawing in and despite this beautiful Indian summer we have been having, before we know it, the nights will be longer and the days will be shorter and colder. After a summer of fun in the sunshine our bodies can sometimes take a hit during this time of this the year.
The run up to Christmas can play havoc on our immune systems, as can the colder weather and the wind and rain which although seems unlikely, will come eventually!
Your immune system is your body's defence against infection and illness. It recognises the cells that make up your body, and will try to get rid of anything unfamiliar. It destroys germs, bacteria, viruses and parasites.
Now is the time to give our immune systems a boost to get them prepared to be the best possible defence against this coming winter.
There are plenty of natural ways to prepare our immune systems for cold and flu season, and our favourite green beverage is one of the best!
Green tea is packed full of antioxidants and as such is a great way to prepare our bodies with the best defence this coming winter, and the time to start preparing, is now!
Fermentation is blocked in the preparation of green tea which means all the natural goodness of the fresh green tea leaf is preserved. The fresh Green tea leaf is rich in healthy nutrients, Polyphenols, Theanine as well as a wide variety of vitamins and minerals which all aid the antioxidant properties of green tea and help it give us a much needed boost in the run up to winter!
One laboratory study suggested that a particular type of polyphenols called catechins may kill influenza viruses, and the best part of Qi green tea compared to other brands is that our blends have absolutely none of the bitter aftertaste often associated with green tea. Not only are our teas delicious, studies show that they could help you fight off cold and flu in the run up to this winter!
Our advice is… start drinking at least one cup of delicious Qi green tea a day and you stand more of a chance of staying fit and healthy this winter…

The choice is yours, it makes sense to get your immune system in tip top condition while the weather is still holding out… The sooner you start drinking the sooner you could start building up those all important defences!!
