Daily cup of green tea may be the answer to allergies by suppressing immune system responses, scientists discover
- 40 percent of green tea consists of bacteria Flavonifractor plautii – FP for short
- Researchers found that FP lowers blood pressure and helps regulate weight

A daily cup of green tea can be the answer to food allergies.
Scientists found that it is high in antioxidants that alter the immune system and protect it from food and drink responses.
Up to 40 percent of green tea recently consists of the bacteria Flavonifractor plautii – FP.
The researchers found that FP can inhibit inflammation, lower blood pressure, and help regulate weight.

And it does this by suppressing the immune system responses behind food allergies.
The study was conducted by academics from Shinshu University in Nagano, a region of Japan that is closed during harsh winters and relies on its own food production.
This food contains natural preserves and fermented pickles.
Nagano is believed to be one of the reasons Nagano has the lowest cost of medical care and the highest life expectancy in Japan.
Fresh green tea – a study in the Journal of Food Science found that antioxidant levels drop by 51 percent within six months
The study, reported in the journal Frontiers in Immunology, concluded, “It is possible that the FP bacterial strains may follow the steps of lactic acid bacteria and bifidobacterium to be added to foods for their desired functionality.”
However, it is important to keep your green tea fresh.
