The benefits of green tea continue to pile up, and this study, Omega-3s and Green Tea Can Ease Inflammation takes a look at the effects on the inflammation process. Inflammation is now considered by many to be the root of most disease including Alzheimer’s, auto-immune, coronary, and Type 2 diabetes.
We also know that green tea helps wonders in post-operative healing by reducing inflammation and, thereby, pain!
In this study participants took
a daily supplement containing green tea extract or a placebo for three months. The supplement contained 379 mg of green tea extract, of which 208 mg was epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), the principal antioxidant found in green tea.
