Consumption of polyphenols, substance in green tea, reduces the spread of abdominal aortic aneurysm
In the study, rats were treated with enzymes that induce abdominal aortic aneurysm, so it was possible to discover how the condition was reduced through the polyphenol compound present in green tea. "The type of polyphenol found in green tea can regenerate elastin, an essential protein that gives the artery its elasticity." The researchers also found that mice had less inflammation and increased production of elastin, which helps protect the artery. abdominal artery aneurysms are caused by the inflammation and degradation of elastin in the arterial wall, we think that drinking green tea may help in treatment. " "The researchers believe that the daily intake of green tea should be considered as a new strategy to prevent abdominal aortic aneurysm. However, further studies still need to be done to see the optimal dose for each person.
