Dietary supplementation with (-)-epigallocatechin-3-gallate reduces inflammatory response in adipose tissue of non-obese type 2 diabetic Goto-Kakizaki (GK) rats.

Abstract

(-)-Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), a major catechin in green tea, is an antioxidant associated with the reduction of oxidative stress in vitro. However, the mechanisms underlying the effects of EGCG on adipose tissue-related metabolic disturbances in vivo are not understood. This study examined whether dietary supplementation of EGCG reduces the oxidative… (More)
