Herbal Therapy: Green Tea in Reduced Risk of Hyperglycemia and Early Onset of Type 2 Diabetes

By Kyle J. Norton

The use of plants for healing purposes has 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 with a ton of phytochemicals has been found to process variuos health benefits reported by large numbers of research and study. However, long term injection of large amounts may obstruct the balance of yin-yang, inducing "yin excessive syndrome" or "yang vacuity syndrome"according to traditional Chinese medicine's Yin-Yang theory. It is recommended to add a slice of ginger in your drink for a purpose of neutralization.

Recently study by renowned institute postulated that regular green tea intake may be associated to reduced risk of developed  hyperglycemia in healthy individual and prevented early onset of diabetes in people with hyperglycemia.

According to the Third Military Medical University, regular consumption of green tea or green tea extract improved insulin sensitivity and glycaemic control in populations with diabetics.

In the review of literature found in data base of PUBMED, The Cochrane Library, EMBASE, ISI Web of Knowledge, Chinese Biomedical Literature Database and Chinese Scientific Journals Fulltext of 17 trials comprising a total of 1133 subjects suggested that green tea consumption significantly reduced the fasting glucose and hemoglobin A1c (Hb A1c) concentrations by -0.09 mmol/L and -0.30%, respectively.

In the trials with high Jadad score studies, green tea significantly reduced fasting insulin concentrations -1.16 μIU/mL in compared to non green tea drinker group.

Other, in the mice study to evalaute green tea drink (T2 and T3) prepared by adding catechins and epigallocatechin gallate, major constituents isolated from green tea (EGCG) @ 550 mg/500 mL against non drinker group acted as control (T1),  mice fed with T2 and T3 expressed a significant reduced cholesterol and LDL levels and serum glucose and insulin levels with no difference in all functional drink groups but control.

Dr. Ahmad RS, the lead author said, "In contrast to lipid profile, experimental drink containing EGCG reduced the trait better than catechins based functional drink".

Furthermore, the compared diabetic effects of 3 selected tea water extracts (TWE) and tea pomace extracts (TPE) and by on rat intestinal α-glucosidase activity in vitro as well as hypoglycemic effects in vivo, insisted that in male Sprague-Dawley (SD) rats fed with tea extracts improved levels of blood glucose level at 30 min after oral intake (0.5 g/kg body wt) in compared to the control in sucrose-loaded SD rat, probably through activation of antioxidants properties in free radical scavenging.

Indeed, tea pomace extract in the study exerted a significantly inhibition of intestinal α-glucosidase, in delayed glucose absorption resulting in suppressing postprandial hyperglycemia.

No doubtfully, green tea processed bioactives may be used as potentially nutraceutical products in prevent the risk of hyperglycemia in healthy people and early onset of in people with prediabetes.
