Green Tea Successful In Treating Diabetes?
Laboratory experiment with an interesting note
Green tea is becoming more and more popular - especially because of its positive effects on our health. For example, the antioxidants in green tea are suspected of being able to counteract type 2 diabetes. A study is following up on this hint.
Rats with type 2 diabetes were treated orally either with varying doses of green tea extract or with metformin (standard medication for type 2 diabetes mellitus) (1). Healthy and untreated control groups were also included.
Treatment with green tea reduced the blood sugar level in a dose-dependent manner and normalized the concentration of insulin, also in a dose-dependent manner. The activity of the liver enzymes involved in sugar metabolism also normalized. With 300 mg / kg body weight of green tea, similar results were obtained as with metformin treatment (500 mg / kg body weight). Treatment with green tea had no effect on healthy rats.
Each subgroup in this experiment consisted of only six rats. In this respect, the informative value of the study is limited, even if the results are fundamentally interesting.
