Do Catechins help block the swine flu virus?
Tokushima Bunri University has done some research.


October 22 4:25 Yomiuri Shimbun (Yahoo News)

Professor Takashi Kuzuhara of the the pharmaceutical department of Tokushima Bunri University has shown catechins in green tea inhibit reproduction in the swine flu virus by directly affecting the core of the virus.

The anti-viral effect of green tea has been known for some time, however this is the first time the mechanism has been made clear.

Influenza A viruses such as the ones that cause the swine flu and Russian flu use an enzyme called RNA polymerase to proliferate, which destroys the RNA in the cells of humans and pigs to create new viruses.

Professor Kuzuhara, extracted this enzyme from the influenza A virus, then mixed it with each of the five different catechins found in green tea, of which two stopped all activity of the enzyme. Analyzing a 3-D computer gererated model of these two types of catechins and the enzymes from the viruses showed the catechin molecules fit right into the complex dimple shapes on the surface of the enzyme molocules. The "knife" that destroys RNA is contained inside the dimple shape, and the catechin acts as a lid rendering it useless.


It expands by the click.

Benifuuki was originally developed for use in black teas, however it was found to contain large amounts of methylated catechin, which was believed to alleviate symptoms of hay fever. Years of clinical research have proven it's effectiveness.?

The pyramid shape makes it easy to steep, and easy to drink. Powder insures the organic green tea catechins are intact.
