Green tea is found to consist a therapeutic and sustainable effect in reduced risk and progression life style diseases, some scientists postulated

Green tea, a precious drink processes numbers of health benefit known to almost everyone in Asia and Western world.

Lifestyle diseases are a class of diseases associated with the way a person or group of people lives, including atherosclerosis, heart disease, and stroke; obesity and type 2 diabetes....and diseases precipitated by smoking and alcohol and drug abuse.

Epidemiological studies suggested that lifestyle-related diseases may be preventable with the change of lifestyle accompanied with intake of some nontoxic agents.

Differentiation of the effect of green tea in attenuated risk and treatment of lifestyle related diseases was found to associate to some mechanisms involving numbers of aspect, particularly, in gene facilitation.

In animal model, green tea administration inhibited risk and symptoms and progression of chronic inflammatory diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and multiple sclerosis, through regulation of tumor necrosis factor (TNF-alpha) gene in expression of  inflammatory cytokines in promoted systematic inflammation in the acute phase of infection caused by damage and injure tissues, in modulated the activation of  NF-kappaB signalling pathway related to cellular response in induction of anti and pro inflammatory stimulation and transcription factor complex (AP-1) in initiation of inflammation against foreign invasion.

The inhibition of inflammatory cytokines expression reduced symptoms of pain, reddish skin, swelling without limiting the protective effect of the immune system to prevent damage tissues against invasion of foreign substances.

Further analysis of chronic inflammatory diseases, in transgenic mice model with human idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis suggested that injection of green tea in 4 months demonstrated a significant activity in ameliorated over expression of TNF-alpha in stimulated production of pro inflammatory cytokines and interleukin (IL)-6 in initiated inflammatory expression in cellular defense in response to infections and tissue injuries in the lung.

In life style related diseases of cardiovascular disease, intake of green tea beverage or extract expressed a significant reductions in serum total cholesterol and LDL-cholesterol concentrations, without effecting the levels of HDL-cholesterol.

Additionally, in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus, green tea extract catechin injection improved fasting glucose levels without affecting the hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) level, which is an predictor of type 2 diabetes onset  and  green tea consumed 5 or more cups per day was associated to a strongly and positively inverse association to risk of type 2 diabetes mellitus.
More amazingly, after taking into account of other con founders, Dr. Sueoka E, the lead scientist suggested that intake of  green tea, containing catechins and caffeine, 5 or more cups per day exhibited a potential and therapeutic effect for body weight management, without going into details.

According to the prospective cohort study in Saitama Prefecture, Japan, green tea injection of over 10 cups per day, displayed a substantial effect in decreased relative risk of death from all causes in patients with cardiovascular disease, particularly, in stroke mortality.

Take together, there is no doubt that green tea with abundantly bioactive phytochemicals may be considered as a function food to reduced risk, progression and treatment of lifestyle related disease, but change of lifestyle is always recommended.
