Green tea may have a therapeutic and positive effect on the healing of tendinitis by protecting the collagen stability and fibrous connective tissue, some scientists suggested.
Tendinitis is a condition characterized by inflammation of a tendon as a result of overuse, infection or rheumatic disease.
The condition mostly happens to people who have jobs involved repetitive movements. Some
Some researchers suggested that in order to prevent tendinitis, it is better to change activities, or rest and come back to it later.
Intake medication may also have a profound effect on reducing pain. However, they may induce common and serious side effects, depending on the types of medicine.
Most cases of tendinitis are recurrent if the thick fibrous cords that attach muscle to bone are continuously overuse due to the occupation
Tendonitis should be treated according to the medical guideline. The untreated condition may cause some complications, including chronic pain in the affected area that may interfere with daily activity and reduce the quality of life. Some untreated tendonitis may cause pain to spread to other parts of the body.
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 stability 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 with 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+ glycine group displayed a statistical significance in the decreased muscle retardation.
After taking into account all 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 stimulating 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 the stimulated production of anti-inflammatory factors and induced the synthesis of the elements, such as extracellular matrix involved in the post-lesion recovery of the tissue.
These results indicated that the recovery from injured tendon can be achieved through improving the compaction of the collagen molecules and inducing assembly of early collagen fibers.
After taking into account 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 findings suggested that green tea may be considered a functional food for speeding up the healing of tendinitis.
However, intake of supplement for treatment of tendinitis should be taken with exceptional care in the prevention of acute liver toxicity.
