Drinking tea can relieve fatty liver?

I do n’t know if any of your comrades have heard that drinking tea can “shave oil”, anyway, the editor did hear someone from the older generation say that drinking tea can “shave oil”. I feel that tea is very healthy for children. Of drinks.

In recent years, there are indeed many studies that prove that certain ingredients in green tea are beneficial to human health. Drinking tea can increase water intake at the same time. I always think that drinking tea is not harmful!

Today, Xiao Bian came to take a look at an article published in an international journal, which is about tea and fatty liver, so what is the relationship between drinking tea and fatty liver?

Research Introduction
The study from Pennsylvania State University found that intake of green tea extract combined with exercise significantly reduced obesity-related fatty liver disease in mice on a high-fat diet. Let’s set it up, and conclude that drinking green tea + exercise can alleviate fatty liver disease in animal models. Let’s take a look at the specific scientific basis!

The researchers used high-fat-fed mice to simulate fatty liver disease models, and the treatment regimen they studied was using either caffeine-free green tea extract (GTE) and exercise (Ex) combined therapy and either alone. In all three treatment regimens, they found that the combination of green tea extract and exercise reduced obesity and insulin resistance in high-fat (HF) -fed mice more than either treatment alone. The active ingredient in green tea extract is EGCG (Epigallocatechin gallate), which is epigallocatechin gallate. (This name is really not funny …) is the main component of green tea polyphenols, which is isolated from tea The obtained catechin monomer.

In previous studies, EGCG was thought to have various physiological effects such as antibacterial, antiviral, antioxidant, antiarteriosclerosis, antithrombotic, antiangiogenic, antiinflammatory and antitumor.

The specific research protocol was: Male C57BL / 6J mice received a high-fat diet (60% of fat energy), supplemented with 7.7 g GTE / kg, and free-wheelable wheels as exercise therapy Ex. The above was treated in combination or alone for 16 weeks. The researchers found that mice treated with the combination significantly reduced the development of non-alcoholic fatty liver induced by a high-fat diet compared to any one treatment alone. The plasma alanine aminotransferase (92% reduction) and liver lipid accumulation (80% reduction) of the mice treated with the combination treatment were lower than those of the control group, and the effect of the single treatment was not obvious. Increased expression of genes related to cholesterol synthesis and uptake in the liver. From this perspective alone, there is no evidence that combination therapy is better than monotherapy.

Drinking more tea can relieve fatty liver

To sum up: green tea extract + moderate exercise can effectively alleviate the progress of non-alcoholic fatty liver.

So for comrades who also have fatty liver, you may wish to drink more green tea while eating a moderate amount of exercise. It can increase the water intake and also have a certain relief effect on fatty liver, why not do it!
