The doctors discovered new properties of green tea.
Japanese biologists have found that drinking green tea reduces the risk of abdominal aortic aneurysm.
This is stated in an article published in the Journal of Vascular Surgery.
Experiments scientists have shown that polyphenolic compounds, many of which are in green tea have a positive impact on the status of the abdominal aorta of rats. This reduced the chances that it will occur inside the aneurysm and the artery will burst.
According to biologists, these substances stimulated cells of the aorta to produce large amounts of protein. He is responsible for the flexibility and strength of its walls. In addition, green tea is an antioxidant. It slows down natural cell death in the arteries and suppresses the inflammatory processes.
“The Japanese live longer than other peoples of the Earth, and dozens of studies show that more than 80% of the Japanese drink green tea every day. We believe that daily consumption of this tea can help prevent the development of abdominal aortic aneurysms. In our further work we will find out the optimal dose of tea,” says researcher Hidetoshi, Masumoto.
