Green Tea Extract, Vitamin C, and Amino Acids for Influenza A

Currently, two drugs marketed as Tamiflu and Relenza are approved for the treatment of influenza.

In this study, authors have focused on developing strategies to inhibit viral infections and other diseases by naturally occurring nutrients, rather than prophylaxes.

They test the efficacy of a unique nutrient mixture (NM), which contains ascorbic acid, green tea extract, lysine, proline, N-acetyle cysteine, selenium, and other micronutrients. This mixture was thought to have anti-carcinogenic and anti-atherogenic properties that combat influenza A virus subtype H1N1 multiplication in infected cells. Anti-carcinogenic agents are those that stop the accumulation and development of carginogens in the body (Merriam-Webster). Similarly, anti-atherogenic agents protect against the formation of abnormal deposits on arteries (The Pharmacy Review).

To Our Community

Acupuncture Atlanta is committed to providing quality care and helping you stay healthy in this environment defined by a new normal. Acupuncture at its core is a preventative modality and our practitioners are here to work with you and design a treatment plan that is suitable for your specific needs.

We will also be taking extra protective measures to ensure the safety of our patients and staff:

·      All visitors musk wear a mask entering the building, checking in and waiting in the lobby. No exceptions.

·      We are providing disinfectant wipes and hand sanitizers for all guests to use in several areas.

·      Each treatment room has a HEPA filter with a built-in UV-C air sanitizer (also used in hospital settings.)

·      Practitioners will wear protective masks and/or gloves.

·      Use of disposable paper sheets or change out sheets in between each patient.

·      Treatment tables and other surfaces will be sanitized after each patient.

·      We try to minimize the number of people waiting in the front lobby - your practitioner may ask you to wait in the car until the room is ready.

Please check your appointment confirmations for specific instructions. Our commitment to keeping everyone safe and healthy is our top priority.
