Sencha Green Tea
Derives from a fynbos plant part of South Africa, which has been consumed since the late 1700s. Rooibos contains unique bioactive phytochemicals, such as aspalathin, luteolin, and quercetin, which have powerful antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-mutagenic activities. Polyphenols such as rutin and quercetin enhance the anti-inflammatory activities of Rooibos on allergies and digestion discomfort.
Sencha Green Tea
Is a variety of Japanese Green tea, derived from Camellia Sinensis. Sencha tea is made from tea plants that have been exposed to the sun all year and cultivated in the shade for thirty days prior to harvesting. Sencha leaves are tightly compressed into needle-like shapes. Covering the leaves seems to increase the chlorophyll concentration of the leaves, causing the leaves to turn dark green. Camellia Sinensis is known for the presence of preserved polyphenols, with it being used medicinally since ancient times. Sencha Green tea is rich in minerals such as calcium, iron, magnesium, sodium, and zinc. Catechins are present, such as epicatechin, ECG, EGC, and EGCG. EGCG is the most plentiful, about sixty percent of the total catechin concentration. Green tea polyphenols have presented activity against a wide spectrum of microbes. EGCG and ECG have been demonstrated to impede the growth of gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria, therefore inducing a positive immune response.
Are most known in the Mediterranean region, where they are used in traditional medicine. Olive tree leaves are rich in flavanols, secoiridoids, and polyphenols, more than olive oil or olives. Phenolic compounds in olive tree leaves have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-thermogenic, and anti-cancer activities. Oleuropein, the main active component in olive tree leaves, has been shown to modify human immune response, increase nitric oxide production in macrophages and produce strong antimicrobial and antiviral activity.
Is widely cultivated in Asia, India, China, and other tropical countries.

Curcuminoids, the main chemical principles of turmeric, have been shown to modulate the activation of immune cells and increase immune response.
