Green Tea...........

Post by ANJANI TETLI on Sun Oct 25, 2009 8:12 am



Drinking green tea could help in the fight against HIV, research suggests.

Scientists
found a component called epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) prevents HIV
from binding to immune system cells by getting there first.

Once EGCG has bound to immune system cells there is no room for HIV to take hold in its usual fashion.

However,
experts said the joint UK and US work, which appears in the Journal of
Allergy and Clinical Immunology, was at a very preliminary stage.

Researcher
Professor Mike Williamson, of the University of Sheffield, said: Our
research shows that drinking green tea could reduce the risk of
becoming infected by HIV, and could also slow down the spread of HIV.

It
is not a cure, and nor is it a safe way to avoid infection, however, we
suggest that it should be used in combination with conventional
medicines to improve quality of life for those infected.

Future
research is also currently under way in order to determine how much
effect can be expected from different amounts of tea.

More work needed

Keith
Alcorn, senior editor of the Aidsmap web service, said tests on animals
would be needed before any conclusions could be safely drawn on the
potential protective effect of drinking green tea.

This
study only looks at the ability of a chemical in green tea to block HIV
binding to human CD4 immune cells in the test tube.

Many
substances shown to prevent HIV infection in the test tube turn out to
have little or no effect in real life, so I think there's a long way to
go before anyone should rely on green tea to protect against HIV
infection.

Lisa Power, head of
policy at the HIV charity, Terrence Higgins Trust said: Condoms keep
HIV at bay. Anything that boosts your immune system is beneficial for
people with HIV, but green tea can't be a substitute for proper
medication and prevention techniques.

Green tea has been linked to a positive effect on a wide range of conditions, including heart disease, cancer and Alzheimer's.
