Green Tea – Latest Research

Green Tea Catechins Help Muscle Recovery

  • Green tea catechins (EGCG) protected injured muscle tissues in post-surgery. Renno et al demonstrated that EGCG enhances functional recovery, protects muscle fibers from cellular death, and improves morphological recovery in skeletal muscle after nerve injuries.

 

Green Tea powerful Antioxidant Properties

  • Epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), the primary catechin in green tea, has anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidative properties  Joo et al, results indicate that EGCG may prevent pro-inflammatory gene expression by blocking key signaling pathways.

Anti-Cancer Activity of Green Tea Catechins (EGCG)

  • Data from a study by Du et al, suggest that apoptosis might play an important role in the EGCG-enhanced antiproliferative effects on human colorectal cancer cells.

Anti-Cancer Activity of Green Tea Catechins (EGCG))

  • Data from a study by Du et al, suggest that apoptosis might play an important role in the EGCG-enhanced antiproliferative effects on human colorectal cancer cells.
  • A systematic review was conducted by Trudel et al, to examine the effects of green tea components on the prevention and progression of epithelial ovarian cancer.

The results in the available literature suggests potential molecular targets for green tea in ovarian cancer treatment and also provides data supporting the clinical evaluation of the role of green tea or green tea components in ovarian cancer prevention and treatment.

  • Malignant mesothelioma (MMe) is a highly aggressive, lethal tumor. Results by Ranzatto et al, suggest that Epigallocatechin-3-Gallate from Green Tea Induces Mesothelioma Cell Death. 

 

Green Tea and Kidney Protection

  • Proteinuric is a disorders characterized by blood and protein in the urine and by damage to the kidney filtering structures and can lead to kidney failure.
  • The aim of this study by Shin et al, was to investigate the antiproteinuric effects of green tea extract on kidney injury in a model animal study. Green Tea treatment showed meaningful antiproteinuric effects through antioxidative activity in kidneys.
