Herbal Therapy: Green tea, the Best Immunomodulated Functional Foods

By Kyle J. Norton

The use of plants for healing purposes have been predated long before the existence of modern medicine. Herbal plants have formed a fundamental source for conventional medicine in discovery of single ingredient medication, including aspirin (from willow bark), quinine (from cinchona bark), and morphine (from the opium poppy)......

Green tea is found to consist a strong immunomodulating effect, affecting the innate and adaptive immune systems, a renowned institute study suggested

Green tea, a precious drink processes numbers of health benefit known to almost everyone in Asia and Western world. 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" induding weaken immunity and painful case of GERD,... according to traditional Chinese medicine's Yin-Yang theory.

According to the Harvard Medical School, epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) isolated from green tea expressed a strong effect on T cell functions, including T cell activation, proliferation, differentiation, and production of cytokines.

Injection of the phytochemical in animal model showed significant effects in regulated T cell dysfunction in expression of autoimmune inflammatory diseases as well as ameliorated T cell-mediated autoimmune diseases.

Furthermore, in naïve CD4(+) T cells proliferate and differentiate into different effector subsets, green tea EGCG inhibited the pro inflammatory Th1 and Th17 cells, subsets of Th cells responsible for inducing autoimmunity, thus improving symptoms and reducing the pathology of autoimmune diseases.

Additionally, Dr. Wu D, the lead author said, "(The) protective effect EGCG is associated with the suppressed proliferation of autoreactive T cells, in reduced production of pro-inflammatory cytokines of  Th1 and Th17, and increased T cell regulation populations in lymphoid tissues and central nervous system".

Further evaluation of green tea EGCG effect in regulated CD4(+) T helper (Th) subsets Th1, Th9, and Th17 cells conducted by the Tufts University, potulated that the phytochemical impeded Th1, Th9, and Th17 differentiation in exhibited inflammation by prevented IL-6(the pro inflammatory cytokine)-induced suppression of Treg development.

More importantly, in experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE) rats, EGCG improved function of CD4(+) T cell through modulated the expression of IL-6 induced cytokin(gp130) in response to auto immune function and cellular response.

Taking together, green tea process a strong immunomodulating effect in reduced risk and treatment of auto inflammatory and immune disease, but long term and large amount intake should be taken with care to prevent toxicity.
