What is phenolic content in tea? 

The phenolic content in tea refers to the phenols and polyphenols, natural plant compounds which are found in tea. These chemical compounds affect the flavor and mouthfeel and are speculated to provide potential health benefits. Polyphenols in tea include catechins, theaflavins, tannins, and flavonoids.9ywShanghai Natural Bio-engineering Co., Ltd

Polyphenols in Tea

Catechins9ywShanghai Natural Bio-engineering Co., Ltd Catechins, include epigallocatechin-3-gallate(EGCG), epicatechin(EC), epicatechin-3-gallate(ECg), epigallocatechin(EGC), catechin, and gallocatechin(GC).The content of EGCG is higher in green tea.9ywShanghai Natural Bio-engineering Co., Ltd Catechins constitute about 25% of the dry weight of fresh tea leaf, although total catechin content varies widely depending on species, clonal variation, growing location, season, light variation, and altitude. They are present in nearly all teas made from Camellia sinensis, including white tea, green tea, black tea and oolong tea.9ywShanghai Natural Bio-engineering Co., Ltd According to a report released by USDA, in a 200-ml cup of tea, the mean total content of flavonoids is 266.68 mg for green tea, and 233.12 mg for black tea.9ywShanghai Natural Bio-engineering Co., Ltd Of all the catechins in tea, EGCG is the main subject of scientific study with regard to its potential health effects.9ywShanghai Natural Bio-engineering Co., Ltd 4-Hydroxybenzoic acid, 3,4-dihydroxybenzoic acid (protocatechuic acid), 3-methoxy-4-hydroxy-hippuric acid and 3-methoxy-4-hydroxybenzoic acid (vanillic acid) are the main catechins metabolites found in humans after consumption of green tea infusions.9ywShanghai Natural Bio-engineering Co., Ltd Theaflavins9ywShanghai Natural Bio-engineering Co., Ltd Catechin monomer structures are metabolized into dimers theaflavins and oligomers thearubigins with increasing degrees of oxidation of tea leaves. Theaflavins directly contribute to the bitterness and astringency of steeped black tea. The mean amount of theaflavins in a cup of black tea (200 ml) is 12.18 mg.9ywShanghai Natural Bio-engineering Co., Ltd Three main types of theaflavins are found in black tea, namely theaflavin (TF-1), theaflavin-3-gallate (TF-2), and theaflavin-3,3-digallate (TF-3).9ywShanghai Natural Bio-engineering Co., Ltd A number of laboratory studies on their possible health effects have been conducted.9ywShanghai Natural Bio-engineering Co., Ltd According to a report released by USDA, in a 200-ml cup of tea, the mean total content of flavonoids is 233.12 mg for black tea.9ywShanghai Natural Bio-engineering Co., Ltd Tannins9ywShanghai Natural Bio-engineering Co., Ltd Tannins are astringent, bitter polyphenolic compounds that bind to and precipitate organic compounds. Gallic acid conjugates of the catechins, such as EGCG (Epigallocatechin gallate), are tannins with astringent qualities.9ywShanghai Natural Bio-engineering Co., Ltd Flavonoids9ywShanghai Natural Bio-engineering Co., Ltd A group of natural phenols called the flavonoids are of popular interest because researchers have found them to have the potential to contribute to better health. Tea has one of the highest contents of flavonoids among common food and beverage products. Catechins are the largest type of flavonoids in growing tea leaves.9ywShanghai Natural Bio-engineering Co., Ltd

Benefits of taking tea extracts

High cholesterol9ywShanghai Natural Bio-engineering Co., Ltd Research shows that green tea lowers total cholesterol and raises HDL ("good") cholesterol in both animals and people. One population-based clinical study found that men who drink green tea are more likely to have lower total cholesterol than those who do not drink green tea.9ywShanghai Natural Bio-engineering Co., Ltd Results from one animal study suggest that polyphenols in green tea may block cholesterol from being absorbed in the intestine and also help the body get rid of cholesterol. In another small study of male smokers, researchers found that green tea significantly reduced blood levels of harmful LDL cholesterol.9ywShanghai Natural Bio-engineering Co., Ltd Cancer9ywShanghai Natural Bio-engineering Co., Ltd Several population-based clinical studies have shown that both green and black teas may help protect against cancer. For example, cancer rates tend to be low in countries such as Japan where people regularly consume green tea. However, it is not possible to know for sure from these population-based studies whether green tea actually prevents cancer in people.9ywShanghai Natural Bio-engineering Co., Ltd Early clinical studies suggest that the polyphenols in tea, especially green tea, may play an important role in the prevention of cancer. Researchers also believe that polyphenols help kill cancerous cells and stop them from growing.9ywShanghai Natural Bio-engineering Co., Ltd Bladder cancer. Only a few clinical studies have examined the relationship between bladder cancer and drinking tea. In one study that compared people with and without bladder cancer, researchers found that women who drank black tea and powdered green tea were less likely to develop bladder cancer. A follow-up clinical study by the same group of researchers revealed that people with bladder cancer -- particularly men -- who drank green tea had a better 5-year survival rate than those who did not.9ywShanghai Natural Bio-engineering Co., Ltd Breast cancer. Clinical studies in animals and test tubes suggest that polyphenols in green tea inhibit the growth of breast cancer cells. In one study of 472 women with various stages of breast cancer, researchers found that women who drank the most green tea had the least spread of cancer. It was especially true in premenopausal women in the early stages of breast cancer. They also found that women with early stages of the disease who drank at least 5 cups of tea every day before being diagnosed with cancer were less likely to have the cancer come back after they finished treatment. However, women with late stages of breast cancer had little or no improvement from drinking green tea.9ywShanghai Natural Bio-engineering Co., Ltd There is no clear evidence one way or the other about green tea and breast cancer prevention. In one very large study, researchers found that drinking tea, green or any other type, was not associated with a reduced risk of breast cancer. However, when the researchers broke down the sample by age, they found that women under the age of 50 who consumed 3 or more cups of tea per day were 37% less likely to develop breast cancer compared to women who didn't drink tea.9ywShanghai Natural Bio-engineering Co., Ltd Ovarian cancer. In a clinical study done with ovarian cancer patients in China, researchers found that women who drank at least one cup of green tea per day lived longer with the disease than those who didn’t drink green tea. In fact, those who drank the most tea, lived the longest. But other studies found no beneficial effects.9ywShanghai Natural Bio-engineering Co., Ltd Colorectal cancer. Clinical studies on the effects of green tea on colon or rectal cancer have showed conflicting results. Some studies show decreased risk in those who drink the tea, while others show increased risk. In one study, women who drank 5 or more cups of green tea per day had a lower risk of colorectal cancer compared to non-tea-drinkers. There was no protective effect for men, however. Other studies show that drinking tea regularly may reduce the risk of colorectal cancer in women. More research is needed before researchers can recommend green tea for the prevention of colorectal cancer.9ywShanghai Natural Bio-engineering Co., Ltd Esophageal cancer. Studies in laboratory animals have found that green tea polyphenols inhibit the growth of esophageal cancer cells. However, studies in people have produced conflicting findings. For example, one large-scale population-based clinical study found that green tea offered protection against the development of esophageal cancer, particularly among women. Another population-based clinical study found just the opposite -- green tea consumption was associated with an increased risk of esophageal cancer. In fact, the stronger and hotter the tea, the greater the risk. Given these conflicting results, more research is needed before scientists can recommend green tea for the prevention of esophageal cancer.9ywShanghai Natural Bio-engineering Co., Ltd Lung cancer. While green tea polyphenols have been shown to inhibit the growth of human lung cancer cells in test tubes, few clinical studies have looked at the link between drinking green tea and lung cancer in people. And even these studies have been conflicting. One population-based study found that Okinawan tea -- similar to green tea but partially fermented -- was associated with lower lung cancer risk, particularly among women. But a second clinical study found that green tea and black tea increased the risk of lung cancer. More studies are needed before researchers can draw any conclusions about green tea and lung cancer.9ywShanghai Natural Bio-engineering Co., Ltd Pancreatic cancer. In one large-scale clinical study researchers compared green tea drinkers with non-drinkers and found that those who drank the most tea were less likely to develop pancreatic cancer. This was particularly true for women -- those who drank the most green tea were half as likely to develop pancreatic cancer as those who drank less tea. Men who drank the most tea were 37% less likely to develop pancreatic cancer.9ywShanghai Natural Bio-engineering Co., Ltd However, it is not clear from this population-based study whether green tea is solely responsible for lowering pancreatic cancer risk. More studies in animals and people are needed before researchers can recommend green tea for the prevention of pancreatic cancer.9ywShanghai Natural Bio-engineering Co., Ltd Prostate cancer. Laboratory studies have found that green tea extracts prevent the growth of prostate cancer cells in test tubes. In a large clinical study in Southeast China researchers found that the risk of prostate cancer went down with increasing frequency, duration and quantity of green tea consumption. However, both green and black tea extracts also stimulated genes that cause cells to be less sensitive to chemotherapy drugs. People who are undergoing chemotherapy should ask their doctors before drinking green or black tea, or taking tea supplements.9ywShanghai Natural Bio-engineering Co., Ltd Skin cancer. The main polyphenol in green tea is epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). Scientific studies suggest that EGCG and green tea polyphenols have anti-inflammatory and anticancer properties that may help prevent the development and growth of skin tumors.9ywShanghai Natural Bio-engineering Co., Ltd Stomach cancer. Laboratory studies have found that green tea polyphenols inhibit the growth of stomach cancer cells in test tubes, but studies in people have been less conclusive. In two studies that compared green tea drinkers with non-drinkers, researchers found that people who drank tea were about half as likely to develop stomach cancer and stomach inflammation as those who did not drink green tea. However, a clinical study with more than 26,000 men and women in Japan found no association between green tea and stomach cancer risk. Some studies even suggest that green tea may increase the risk of stomach cancer.9ywShanghai Natural Bio-engineering Co., Ltd More clinical studies are underway to see whether green tea helps reduce the risk of stomach cancer.9ywShanghai Natural Bio-engineering Co., Ltd Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)9ywShanghai Natural Bio-engineering Co., Ltd Green tea may help reduce inflammation associated with Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, the two types of IBD. If green tea proves to help prevent colon cancer, it would also help those with IBD because they are at higher risk for colon cancer.9ywShanghai Natural Bio-engineering Co., Ltd Diabetes9ywShanghai Natural Bio-engineering Co., Ltd Green tea has been used traditionally to control blood sugar levels. Animal studies suggest that green tea may help prevent the development of type 1 diabetes and slow the progression once it has developed. In people with type 1 diabetes, their bodies make little or no insulin, which helps convert glucose or sugar into energy. Green tea may help regulate glucose in the body.9ywShanghai Natural Bio-engineering Co., Ltd A few small clinical studies have found that taking a green tea extract daily lowered the hemoglobin A1c level in people with borderline diabetes.9ywShanghai Natural Bio-engineering Co., Ltd Liver disease9ywShanghai Natural Bio-engineering Co., Ltd Population-based clinical studies have shown that men who drink more than 10 cups of green tea per day are less likely to develop liver problems. Green tea also seems to protect the liver from the damaging effects of toxic substances such as alcohol. Animal studies have shown that green tea helps protect against liver tumors in mice.9ywShanghai Natural Bio-engineering Co., Ltd Results from several animal and human studies suggest that one of the polyphenols in green tea, known as catechin, may help treat viral hepatitis, an inflammation of the liver. In these studies, catechin was used by itself in very high amounts. It is not clear whether green tea, which has a lower concentration of catechins, would have the same benefits.9ywShanghai Natural Bio-engineering Co., Ltd Weight loss9ywShanghai Natural Bio-engineering Co., Ltd Clinical studies suggest that green tea extract may boost metabolism and help burn fat. One study found that the combination of green tea and caffeine improved weight loss and maintenance in people who were overweight and moderately obese. Some researchers think that substances in green tea known as catechins are responsible for the herb's fat-burning effect.9ywShanghai Natural Bio-engineering Co., Ltd Other uses9ywShanghai Natural Bio-engineering Co., Ltd One small study found that drinking green tea helped prevent dental cavities. More studies need to be done. Green tea may also be useful in inflammatory diseases, such as arthritis. Research suggests that green tea may help arthritis by reducing inflammation and slowing the breakdown of cartilage. Chemicals in green tea may also be help treat genital warts and prevent symptoms of colds and flu. Studies also show that drinking green tea is associated with reduced risk of dying from any cause.9ywShanghai Natural Bio-engineering Co., Ltd

How to take it

Pediatric9ywShanghai Natural Bio-engineering Co., Ltd Green tea has not been studied in children, so it is not recommended for pediatric use.9ywShanghai Natural Bio-engineering Co., Ltd Adult9ywShanghai Natural Bio-engineering Co., Ltd Depending on the brand, 2 - 3 cups of green tea per day (for a total of 240 - 320 mg polyphenols) or 100 - 750 mg per day of standardized green tea extract is recommended.
