This Seasons Secret Weapons

Start pumping green tea into your bloodstream at the first sign of a cold and you should be able to stop the advance of the adenovirus. It's the difference between staying home for 2 or 3 days, and going to work and just sniffling a bit. 

Interesting fact:  When Canadian researchers added green tea to lab samples of the adenovirus (one of the bugs responsible for colds), they found that it stopped the virus from replicating. All the credit goes to EGCG, a chemical compound found in certain kinds of tea, but in the highest concentrations in green tea. 

Pro tip: Steep your green tea in water that isn't boiling in order to avoid burning the tea leaves and creating a bitter taste. This little secret is the ultimate green tea #gamechanger!
