Green Tea Extract Benefits for Cancer: Can Antioxidants Help Combat Cancer?

Green tea is being studied by the medical community to determine its impact on fighting cancer, with initial studies finding that extracts from the tea may slow cancer growth.

The American Institute for Cancer Research said studies have shown that antioxidants in green tea, including polyphenols and flavonoids, and specifically a type of flavonoid called catechins, may be cancer-fighting agents.

Laboratory studies found that green tea, which has three time the catechins as black tea, slowed or prevented cancer development in several types of cancer, including liver, breast and colon cancer, AICR said. Those studies have not been replicated outside the laboratory, but additional research is being done.

Another possible cancer-fighting component of green tea is epigallocatechin gallate, abbreviated EGCG. A 2014 study found that EGCG changed the metabolism of pancreatic cancer cells.

“The study is significant because there is a widely held belief among scientists that to treat cancer you have to use molecular mechanisms. Now there is a new possibility — change the metabolic system,” Medical News Today said.

“By explaining how green tea’s active component could prevent cancer, this study will open the door to a whole new area of cancer research and help us understand how other foods can prevent cancer or slow the growth of cancerous cells,” the study’s researcher Dr. Wai-Nang Lee told Medical News.

How Much Green Tea to Drink to Lose Weight….

Studies have shown that green tea’s active component called “epigallocatechin gallate” or EGCG to be very beneficial in treating cancers of the brain, prostate, cervix, and bladder. This magical antioxidant has also proven therapeutic for diseases such as chronic fatigue syndrome, sjogren’s syndrome, endometriosis, spinal muscular atrophy, neurodegeneration, and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). It can even help with weight loss.

Research has shown that ECGC may:

  • increase metabolism and fat oxidation
  • inhibit fat cell development
  • increase the excretion of fat

Now you’re probably wondering how much green tea you should drink in order to get enough ECGC to lose weight. Below you will find the benefits for one, two, and three cups of green tea per day.

How To Lose Weight With a Green Tea Diet

Stressed and worried, I started looking for an alternate weight-loss solution. It’s kind of funny that the solution was right there in my kitchen cupboard but I just never saw it. It was the age-old (drum roll) green tea.

Green tea not only helped me lose 10 pounds in 3 weeks but also improved my health. Today, I feel great about how I look and feel. So, I have decided to share my green tea diet plan with you. But first, let’s see how green tea can help you lose weight.

Green tea contains an active antioxidant compound, Catechins. One of the catechins, known as Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) helps to boost metabolism and burn fat. EGCG helps to mobilize the fat by inhibiting an enzyme that breaks down a hormone called norepinephrine (1). This increases the level of norepinephrine. Now, norepinephrine signals the fat cells to break down fat. Green tea also contains a generous amount of caffeine that stimulates weight loss.

Now that you have a fair idea of how this wonder drink exactly does let’s take a peek into my 7-day green tea diet plan.

7-Day Green Tea Diet Plan

This 7-day diet plan should be followed for three weeks for desired results.

Day 1 (Monday)

Why This Works

Lime juice adds to the taste and flavor of your morning green tea. It also helps to boost your immunity. A heavy nutrient-rich breakfast will keep you active throughout the day. Pre-lunch and pre-dinner green tea will suppress your appetite and prevent you from eating too much. Yogurt contains good gut bacteria that helps in digestion and in turn, aids weight loss. Keep lunch/dinner delicious and nutritious but light.

Green tea found to reduce rate of some GI cancers….

Women who drink green tea may lower their risk of developing some digestive system cancers, especially cancers of the stomach/esophagus and colorectum, according to a study led by researchers from Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center.

The study by lead author Sarah Nechuta, Ph.D., MPH, assistant professor of Medicine, was published online in advance of the Nov. 1 edition of the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.  Wei Zheng, M.D., Ph.D., MPH, professor of Medicine, chief of the Division of Epidemiology and director of the Vanderbilt Epidemiology Center, was the principal investigator for the study.

To determine green tea’s impact on cancer risk, the investigators surveyed women enrolled in the Shanghai Women’s Health Study, a population-based study of approximately 75,000 middle-aged and older Chinese women. During the initial interview participants were asked if they drank tea, the type of tea consumed and how much they consumed.  Most of the Chinese women reported drinking primarily green tea.

The researchers found that regular tea consumption, defined as tea consumption at least three times a week for more than six months, was associated with a 17 percent reduced risk of all digestive cancers combined. A further reduction in risk was found to be associated with an increased level of tea drinking. Specifically, those who consumed about two to three cups per day (at least 150 grams of tea per month) had a 21 percent reduced risk of digestive system cancers.

The trend toward fewer digestive cancers was strongest for stomach/esophageal and colorectal cancers.

“For all digestive system cancers combined, the risk was reduced by 27 percent among women who had been drinking tea regularly for at least 20 years,” said Nechuta. “For colorectal cancer, risk was reduced by 29 percent among the long-term tea drinkers. These results suggest long-term cumulative exposure may be particularly important.”

Tea contains polyphenols or natural chemicals that include catechins like EGCG and ECG. Catechins have antioxidant properties and may inhibit cancer by reducing DNA damage and blocking tumor cell growth and invasion.

The researchers also asked about other lifestyle factors including the kinds of food eaten regularly, exercise habits, education level and occupation. Women who had ever smoked or who drank alcohol were excluded from the study.

Regular tea drinkers in the study were younger, had higher education, exercised more and consumed more fruits and vegetables. While the researchers adjusted for these factors, they could not rule out an effect from these and other unmeasured lifestyle habits.

The study was conducted in nonsmoking and non drinking Chinese women to minimize the potential influence of these two risk factors on the results for tea consumption and digestive system cancer risk.

Other investigators who contributed to the study included Xiao Ou Shu, M.D., Ph.D., MPH, Gong Yang, M.D., MPH, Hui Cai, M.D., Ph.D., VICC; Yu-Tang Gao, M.D., Hong-Lan Li, M.D.,  Yong-Bing Xiang, M.D., MPH, Department of Epidemiology, Shanghai Cancer Center; Bu-Tian Ji, M.D., Dr.P.H., Wong-Ho Chow, Ph.D., Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics, National Cancer Institute.

The research was supported by funding from the National Cancer Institute (grant number R37 CA70867), which is a division of the National Institutes of Health.

Beneficial effects of green tea: A literature review…

The health benefits of green tea for a wide variety of ailments, including different types of cancer, heart disease, and liver disease, were reported. Many of these beneficial effects of green tea are related to its catechin, particularly (-)-epigallocatechin-3-gallate, content. There is evidence from in vitro and animal studies on the underlying mechanisms of green tea catechins and their biological actions. There are also human studies on using green tea catechins to treat metabolic syndrome, such as obesity, type II diabetes, and cardiovascular risk factors.

 

Long-term consumption of tea catechins could be beneficial against high-fat diet-induced obesity and type II diabetes and could reduce the risk of coronary disease. Further research that conforms to international standards should be performed to monitor the pharmacological and clinical effects of green tea and to elucidate its mechanisms of action.
