Green Tea: Cholesterol Metabolism

Green Tea: Cholesterol Metabolism | Benefits Green Tea | Scoop.it
HIRSOVA et al, in the European journal of pharmacology (Jul 9, 2012), studied the Green Tea catechin (EGCG) and its ability to affect cholesterol metabolism in the liver.

They conclude that Green Tea catechins change the expression of relevant enzymes and transporters of CHOLESTEROL suggesting evidence of another mechanism that may contribute to the overall effect of EGCG on cholesterol metabolism.

Green Tea is used in the 100% natural drink SLIM&FIT, along with several other herbs & spices, which are effective for weight management.

Green Tea and Cognitive Function

Green Tea and Cognitive Function | Benefits Green Tea | Scoop.it

Green Tea and Dementia Alzheimer’s disease is now the most common form of dementia. Biasibetti et al studied an animal model system where chronic brain dysfunction was characterized by long-term deficits in memory.

 

Results show that EGCG was able to reverse various markers of cognitive deficit e.g. glutathione peroxidase activity, Nitric Oxide metabolites, and reactive oxygen species content. The data confirms that there is a neuroprotective potential for Green Tea catechins. These results also add to the knowledge of diseases accompanied by cognitive deficits and models of dementia.

Green Tea: Anti-inflammatory & Cognitive Function Improvement

Oxidative stress & Inflammation:

Flavanols, from dietary sources like Green Tea, give protection to a range of health conditions like insulin resistance. Stote et al, studied the amounts and types of flavanols that may be efficacious in various chronic conditions.

The study was designed to determine if cocoa flavanols, over a range of intakes, improve biomarkers of glucose regulation, inflammation and hemostasis in obese adults at risk for insulin resistance. As an adjunct, green tea and cocoa flavanols were compared for their ability to modulate these biomarkers.

Conclusions: Intake of Cocoa and Green Tea flavanols appear to positively affect selected markers of one or more measures of oxidative stress, inflammation or hemostasis in obese adults at risk for insulin resistance.

Cognitive Function – Green Tea and Cocoa similarities:

Mandel & Youdim reviewed the impact of nutritional supplementation on brain function in general, and provide a compilation of the most updated literature on epidemiology, clinical and animal studies with Green Tea polyphenols in age associated cognitive decline and in fighting neurodegenerative diseases. They present a perspective on the utility and assigned patents with Green Tea constituents that can help with a range of cognitive functions.

Reduced risk of Cancer

Nechuta et al investigated the association of regular tea intake with risk of digestive system cancers in a population-based prospective cohort study of middle-aged and older Chinese women who were recruited in 1996-2000. An inverse association was found primarily for colorectal and stomach/esophageal cancers.

In conclusion, this large population study, tea consumption was associated with reduced risk of colorectal and stomach/esophageal cancers in Chinese women.

In a similar study by Wang et al, a meta-analysis showed that green tea may have a protective effect on bladder cancer (Asia).

A review by Khan & Mukhtar was conducted on Green tea catechins (epigallocatechin-3-gallate – EGCG) on its prostate cancer preventive properties. In their review article, they present available scientific literature about the effects of Green Tea Polyphenols and EGCG on signaling pathways in Prostate Cancer.

Learning, Hypertension and Cognitive Function

Cognitive dysfunction can occur via oxidative processes. Green tea catechins ((-)-epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG)) were studied by Wang et al to evaluate the impact of hypertension in an animal model system on locomotor activity, learning, and memory.

EGCG treatment decreased the increased level of lipid peroxide production in a hypertensive animal model. These and other results suggest a therapeutic effect of EGCG in treating hypertension-induced learning and memory impairment, most probably through its powerful antioxidative properties.
