Herbal Therapy: Green Tea in Ameliorated Symptoms, Progression and Treatment of Tendinitis

Kyle J. Norton 

Green tea may have a therapeutic and positive effect in reduced symptoms, progression and treatment of tendinitis, some scientists suggested.

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

Tendinitis is a condition characterized by inflammation of a tendon as a result of overuse, infection or rheumatic disease.

According to the study of the effect of GT and/or glycine in the diet on tendinitis on Wistar rats, randomly divided into seven groups (G): control group (C); G1 and G4, tendinitis; G2 and G5, tendinitis supplied with GT; and G3 and G6, tendinitis supplied with GT and a glycine diet for 7 or 21 days, respectively, group with  tendinitis treated with green tea demonstrated a significant effect in enhanced collagen stablility through expression of hydroxyproline in compared to other groups.

Furthermore, GT and glycine alone treated groups showed an increased activity of metalloproteinase-2 MMP-2 levels which has been associated to the healing process of the fibrous connective tissue in tendinitis patients.

In compared to control and non GT treatment groups, application of green tea or GT+ gyycine group displayed a statistical significance in the decreased muscle retardation.

After taking into account of other co founders, Dr. Vieira CP, the lead author said, " GT + a glycine diet has beneficial effects that aid in the recovery process of the tendon after tendinitis".

Interestingly, in the study investigated the remodeling effects of green tea and glycine in the myotendinous junction (MTJ) of male Wistar rats with tendinitis, randomly divided into five groups: animals without tendinitis and animals with tendinitis; animals with tendinitis supplied with green tea; animals with tendinitis supplied with a glycine diet; animals with tendinitis supplied with a green tea and glycine diet, researcher found that all treatment groups exerted a profound effect in regulated the activity of metalloproteinases (MMP)-2 with function in remodeling the tendon after tendinitis, MMP-8 and -9 which are associated to remodeling tissue expression in the disease progression  and induced the synthesis of type I collagen regulation by cell spreading, platelet-derived growth factor and interactions with collagen fibers.

Moreover, rats groups treated above application also demonstrated an increase of glycosaminoglycans, in stimulated the regenerative processes, while maintaining host cell characteristics and function and non-collagenous proteins in modulated the development of fine fibrils presented in collagen fibers of connective tissue

Additionally, the combination of green tea and glycine also modulated the inflammatory process through stimulated production of anti inflammatory factors and induced the synthesis of the elements, such as extra cellular matrix involved in the post-lesion recovery of the tissue.

These results indicated an important recovery from injured tendon through improving the compaction of the collagen molecules and inducing assembly of early collagen fibers, in green tea and glycin treated groups.

After considering of all cofounders, researchers and colleagues at the Anat Rec said, " each region of the inflamed tendon can exhibit different responses during the treatment and therefore, modify its extracellular matrix components to facilitate recovery and repair".

The information findings suggested that green tea may be considered as a function food for reduced symptoms, progression and used with glycin and conentional standard medicine for treatment of
tendinitis. However, intake of supplement for treatment of  tendinitis should be taken with exceptional care in prevented toxicity.
