Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), a main active ingredient of green tea, is believed to be beneficial in association with anticarcinogenesis, antiobesity, and blood pressure reduction. Here we report that EGCG extended Caenorhabditis elegans longevity under stress. Under heat stress (35 degrees C), EGCG improved the mean longevity by 13.1% at 0.1 microg/ml,(More)
Major chemical compounds in different extracts from tea flowers (Camellia sinensis) were analyzed. Distilled water or 70% ethanol extracts were then fractionated with chloroform, ethyl acetate and n-butanol, respectively. Each extract fraction was tested its scavenging activities on 2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) and hydroxyl free radicals. The(More)
The antioxidant properties of theaflavins and their gallate esters, namely theaflavin (TF1), theaflavin-3(3')-gallate (TF2) and theaflavin-3,3'-digallate (TF3) were investigated by comparing with epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). The order of hydroxyl radicals-scavenging ability was TF3>TF2>TF1>EGCG. The order of 2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl scavenging(More)
In the present study, we successively extracted the Pu-erh tea with acetone, water, chloroform, ethyl acetate, and n-butanol, and the extracts were then isolated by column chromatography. Our study demonstrates that the Pu-erh tea ethyl acetate extract, n-butanol extract, and their fractions had superoxide anion and hydroxyl radical scavenging activity:(More)
