Green tea is found to consist an anti obesity function, a recent study by popular institute suggested.

Green tea, considered as a functional food, linking  numbers of health benefit has been reported by several renowned research and studies. However, as yin in nature herbal medicine or food, long term injection of large amounts may obstruct the balance of yin-yang, induced "yin excessive syndrome" or "yang vacuity syndrome" including weaken immunity and painful case of GERD,... according to traditional Chinese medicine's Yin-Yang theory. But adding a slice ginger will do the trick.

Obesity is a medical condition of excess body fat accumulated overtime. A person is considered an obese if excess body weight relatively to the height is over 30 in BMI index.

According to the University of the Punjab, Epigallocatechin gallate, a polyphenol found in tea plants exhibited anti obesity effect through modulation of thePPAR[gamma] pathway in metabolism involved fat cells/adipose tissues.

In animal study, the chemical constituent stopped the adipogenic cell differentiation through different proteins and transcription factors in expression of adipocyte formation which is considered as fat cell development in contribution to obesity.

Dr. Javaid MS, the lead author in the study said, "Docking analysis of PPAR gamma and epigallocatechin gallate demonstrated that epigallocatechin gallate binds with PPAR gamma at its active site and blocks its activity".

Also, in animal induced by high fat diet, green tea Epigallocatechin 3-gallate (EGCG),exerted anti obesity effects through reduced plasma glucose and alleviate complications of diabetes by attenuating advanced glycation end products (AGEs) formation involved proteins or lipids expression.

Dietary EGCG tested in C57BL/6 mice induced by high-fat diet with or without ECGC for 17 weeks and compared to a control group placed on low-fat diet for the same period, also showed a significanty reduced weight gain, plasma glucose, insulin level, liver and kidney weight, which can be seen in obesity in compared control mice.

Importantly, green tea Epigallocatechin 3-gallate (EGCG fed mice novally decreased the levels of AGEs(advanced glycation end product) in both plasma and liver while inhibiting the receptor for AGE (RAGE) expression of activating Nrf2, antioxidant response and enhanced anti oxidative stress ratio of GSH/GSSG.

Other searchers opinionated the effect of green tea in reduced fat/adipose tissues accumulation in obese subject is a result of the pro-oxidant action of EGCG, in de activated cellular production of reactive oxygen species, through indication of adenosine monophosphate-activated protein kinase in suppressed gene and protein expression of enzymes and transcription factors involved in adipogenesis and lipogenesis(fat and adiposed metabolism).

Taking together, green tea with all the phytochemicals may be used as anti obesity functional food to help control hyperglycemia, reduce weight, and alleviate diabetes complications.
