Green Tea Compound Can Kill Oral Cancer Cells & Helps in Weight Loss

By Anny on May 19th, 2012

Green tea

Did you know that Green Tea is known to have extreme health benefits of which unwanted fat loss and prevention of oral cancer are primary? In this article, let us look at how having Green Tea goes about achieving this.

Oral Cancer: Pennsylvania State University’s Joshua Lambert, co-director at Centre for Plant and Mushroom Foods for Health and his research team has observed that the EGCG compound (epigallocatechin-3-gallate), a major percentage of Green Tea’s anti-oxidants, ensures that cancerous cells found in the oral cavity self-destruct. This happens as a result of mitochondrial damage enthused by EGCG.

There is no need to panic. The EGCG did not affect the healthy cells quite the same way and it actually enhanced the mitochondrial membrane potential, which enhances healthier metabolism internal to the cell.

Joshua Lambert stated in a press release – “EGCG is doing something to damage the mitochondria and that mitochondrial damage sets up a cycle causing more damage, and it spirals out, until the cell undergoes programmed cell death, it looks like EGCG causes the formation of reactive oxygen species in cancer cells, which damages the mitochondria, and the mitochondria responds by making more reactive oxygen species.” Detailed research is available at Molecular Nutrition and Food Research (online version).

The working of Green Tea’s EGCG has been attributed to a protein known as the Sirtuin 3 (SIRT3). Lambert stated – “It plays an important role in mitochondrial function and in antioxidant response in lots of tissues in the body, so the idea that EGCG might selectively affect the activity of sirtuin 3 in cancer cells – to turn it off – and in normal cells – to turn it on – is probably applicable in multiple kinds of cancers.”

Can we safely then say that Green Tea can be THE cure for all sorts of cancers, of course, post research. Indicators are that this research is progressive and we can be seeing a lot more benefits coming from EGCG. Normal cancer patients are treated with strong anti-cancer medications that have ample side-effects. Chemotherapy can be quite heart-breaking for hair follicles and intestinal cells; however Green Tea has absolutely no side-effects.

Time to start the Green Tea habit? – Four cups a day and keep cancer away.

Weight Loss: Green Tea is one of the most beneficial drinks for humans available on the planet and it comes with a host of substances that aid good health. The primary and most important ingredients of Green Tea are a wide range of anti-oxidants that help you detoxify the body without consciously aiming to do so.

Detoxification removes a lot of impurities along with the fat particles. Additionally, as discussed above the EGCG present in Green Tea enhances metabolism. Increase in metabolism also converts to fat loss to a certain extent.

Going further the EGCG actually controls the enzyme that helps in breaking down a hormone called the norepinephrine. Once this is achieved, it results in excessive norepinephrine increases. This increment signals the central nervous system which in turn forwards the signal to fat cell to break down quickly.

The percentage of caffeine in Green Tea is much lesser than that is found in normal tea or coffee (about 30%). The combination of EGCG and Caffeine also have a symbiotic effect on the human body resulting in breaking down more fat into the blood stream converting it into energy that can be used or ingested into the muscle cells, if exercised regularly.

Lesser fat has a positive effect on the body in the form of a healthy liver, better heart, lesser blood pressure and so on.

While reducing the probability of cancer, losing weight can be an icing on the cake.

When do you want to make Green Tea your favorite beverage?

So what else do we know about Green Tea?

Is there any vegetable, fruit or drink which can offer so many benefit as the green tea is? Whenever we visit a grocery store or supermarket, we experience the green tea packets or beverages for sale. Although green tea is being in use from thousands of years and people are aware about its health benefits, it seems to push them more about green tea benefits and encourage using green tea if they are not feeling well about its taste.
