Green tea, is a precious drink with numbers of health benefit known to almost everyone in Asia and Western world.
Acne is a condition of skin diseases characterized by the occurrence of inflamed or infected sebaceous glands in the skin.
In the examined the effects of EGCG, the bioactive major polyphenol of green tea on human SEB-1 sebocytes with function in secreted sebum in patients with acne, researchers found that EGCG exerted a significant antioxidant activity in reduced sebum secretion by modulating the AMPK -SREBP-1 signaling pathway through AMPK expression in stimulated EGCG effect in regulated the interaction of phosphorylates sterol regulatory element binding proteins SREBP-1.
Application of green tea EGCG also demonstrated a strong effect in reduced sebum in induction of inflammation of sebaceous glands by suppressing the NF-κB in induced transcription of proinflammatory genes in cellular response to stress and pathogens and AP-1 pathway, a transcription factor with function in regulated gene expression of inflammation factors in response to a variety of stimuli, including bacterial and viral infections.
Amazingly, the randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial conducted from May 2012 through October 2013.of a total of 64 of 80 women, from 25 to 45 years of age with moderate-to-severe acne randomly assigned to receive either 1500 mg of decaffeinated GTE or placebo (cellulose) daily for 4 weeks indicated that there were statistically significant differences in inflammatory lesion counts found on the nose, periorally and on the chin between the two groups but no significant differences of total lesion counts.
Within group, green tea application displayed significant reductions in inflammatory lesions distributed on the forehead and cheek with no difference in total lesion counts.
Moreover, green tea group also resulted in significant reduction of total cholesterol levels in compared to cellulose group.
Truly, according to the University of Miami, in the examine 12 patients with mild-to-moderate acne vulgaris received green tea application twice daily for a period of 6 weeks, topical injection of 2% green tea lotion was found to be effective in treatment with statistically significant in mean total lesion count (TLC) decreased from 24 measured at the baseline to 10 after 6 weeks treatment, a reduction of 58.33%.
The mean severity index (SI) from all patients also decreased from 2.05 before treatment to 1.25 after 6 weeks treatment, a decrease of 39.02%.
Dr. Elsaie ML, the lead scientists said, "Topical 2% green tea lotion is an effective, cost-effective treatment for mild-to-moderate acne vulgaris".
