Green Tea, Epigenetics and Coronavirus

by Julian

Do you know that you can consume an epigenetics diet that will bolster your body' immunity against Coronavirus or Covid 19?

But first, let me explain to you what is meant by epigenetic as this is a fresh new concept that few people have heard of yet.

Are you ready?

Here's how the Jackson Laboratory explained what is mean by epigenetic:

Genetics is your genes. And each gene has a unique sequence that makes a protein that does something in your body.

A genetic mutation is a hardcopy change in one or more parts of that sequence.

This could just make you, you. Or it could contribute to a genetic disease.

An epigenetic change also changes a gene’s DNA — but not at the sequence level.

Instead, special marks are added or removed to change how a protein works in the body. How these marks appear is a hot research topic. Some causes may be diet, stressors or environmental pollutants.

What’s important about epigenetics is that it offers a different approach to treating disease. Whereas a hardcopy genetic mutation is difficult to fix, finding ways to remove a bad epigenetic mark, or add a good one, could be an easier solution.

So what food will block Covid-19 from infecting us at the cellular level?

According to an article published by, the following food will help:

- 300 g of fresh red onion
- 300 ml of squeezed orange juice
- 1 g of green tea
- 50 g juniper berries

The article advised:

The active compounds from orange and juniper berries can be simply obtained by eating these fruits directly, or drinking the juice from them.

The best cooking method for onions is light frying or sautéing that will retain nearly 100% of quercetin for intake.

To maximize EGCG from green tea, the best method would be to using 5 g of green tea in 300 ml of water, brewed at 85 degrees Celsius for 3 minutes. EGCG content is expected to reach a maximum of 50 mg per 100 ml of water.
