Arthritis Tea You want to be hipper and healthier? Drink tea. Green, black, oolong and white teas are loaded with polyphenols, plant-derived compounds that rev up the immune system and may protect against certain diseases, including arthritis.
“Tea drinking boosts T cells’ ability to react against bacterial and viral infections,” says Jack F. Bukowski, MD, PhD, a rheumatologist at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston. This action helps your body fight off colds and flu. “I suspect this is good for people with arthritis, who are taking immunosuppressive medications that make them more susceptible to infection,” he says. Tea boosts the immune system, and preliminary studies shows tea also has anti-inflammatory action. In lab studies, Case Western Reserve University researchers in Cleveland showed EGCG, a substance in green tea halts arthritis development and progression by blocking Interleukin-1, a pro-inflammatory cell, from damaging cartilage. Brewing Tips: To get polyphenol-rich tea, steep your loose tea in boiled water for 5 minutes. Opting for iced or decaf tea or using condiments like lemon or honey won’t nix tea’s health benefits. One cup or two?: About two hours after your last sip of tea, your polyphenol blood levels drop. You'd have to drink seven or eight cups of tea over the day to keep your polyphenol levels consistently elevated.
