Scientists at the Ohio state University in the US found that green tea helps to cope with obesity and reduces the number of inflammatory biomarkers. About it reported in a press release on MedicalXpress.
The research assistants evaluated the effects of 2% of green tea extract on mice. One group of rodents within eight weeks of sitting on a diet high in fat and the other had a normal diet. Each group was divided into two parts, only one of which received the extract.
Scientists measured the animals body weight, amount of adipose tissue, insulin resistance and a number of other indicators, including gut permeability, translocation of endotoxin into the blood (resistance to insulin), inflammatory processes in the gastro-intestinal tract and the microbial composition.
It turned out that drinking green tea helped to ensure that the mouse is sitting on a fat diet, gained 20% less weight and had lower insulin resistance than those animals that did not receive the extract. In addition, green tea prevented the penetration of endotoxin secreted by some bacteria into the blood. Green tea also contributed to a more healthy microbial community in the gut.
Used in the study dose is equivalent to 10 cups of tea for people. However, according to scientists, the results of the experiment is premature to extrapolate on the person. In addition, supplementation with green tea extract will not be a substitute due to the fact that the body in another way learns the catechins in the beverage.
Earlier, in October 2018, it was reported that the resident of the American city of Dallas, Texas, Jim Mccants (Jim mccants project) was denied the liver because of taking a daily green tea extract capsules.
