Green tea, The Beverage Which Processes Anti Viral Activity Against Onset of Pneumonitis

By Kyle J. Norton, Master of Nutrition

Scientists may have found a beverage processed antivirus property for a cure of pneumonitis, some studies suggested.

Pneumonitis is an inflammatory disease that affects the walls of the alveoli in the lungs, in most cases, it is caused by a virus.

However, irritants, ranging from airborne molds to chemotherapy drugs, have been linked to the onset of the condition.

Most common symptoms of are difficulty breathing, often accompanied by a dry cough.

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

In the concerns of the widespread of some virus in the induction of pneumonitis, researchers at the Kobe University conducted an investigation to examine whether green tea Epigallocatechin-3-O-gallate (EGCG), the major catechin component of green tea possessed antiviral activities against a wide range of DNA viruses and RNA viruses, that cause pneumonitis.

At the final report of the experiment, researchers suggested that EGCG appears most likely to inhibits the early stage of infections, such as attachment, entry, and membrane fusion, by interfering with viral membrane proteins.

Also, according to the observation of the relationships between structure and antiviral activity of catechin derivatives, researchers found that the 3-galloyl and 5'-OH group of catechin derivatives appears critical to antiviral activities in the early phase of infection.

In addition of fatty acid derivative, the combination also exerts an increase viral and cellular membrane permeability.

These results suggested that EGCG-fatty acid monoesters improved greater antiviral activities against different types of viruses, probably due to their increased affinity for virus and cellular membranes, compared to the use of EGCG alone.

Dr. Kaihatsu K, the lead author said, after taking into account of other co and confounders, "(The) application of EGCG-fatty acid derivatives for the prevention and treatment of viral infections".

Furthermore, a study in the evaluation of epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), the main constituent of green tea, anti-infective properties.launched by the University of Duisburg-Essen, showed that application of EGCG demonstrated a significant activity on orthomyxoviridae and Flaviviridae and other human pathogens like human immunodeficiency virus, influenza A virus and the hepatitis C virus.through interfering with the replication cycle of DNA viruses like hepatitis B virus, herpes simplex virus,.... and adenovirus.

Additionally, in an experimental skin contact model for influenza virus transmission to evaluate the use of a green tea solution as a first-hand disinfectant, researchers strong agreed that green tea displays a strong antiviral effect in inhibiting the infectivity of the virus on the skin cell layer.

This result suggested that green tea may be used as a non-pharmaceutical washing solution in reducing human transmission of viral infection, including the virus that causes pneumonitis.

Taken all together, green tea and its bioactive EGCG may be considered a functional food in protecting the lung tissue against the onset of viral pneumonitis.

Intake of green tea supplement EGCG should be taken with extreme care as acute liver diseases have been reported in many instances.
