AbstractPurpose Although previous literature has reported that regular green tea consumption may improve blood pressure, the evidence from these studies is not consistent. The present study systematically reviewed randomised controlled trials and examined the effect of green tea consumption on blood pressure using meta-analysis.MethodsSearch of ProQuest, PubMed, Scopus and Cochrane Library (CENTERAL) was conducted, to identify eligible articles. Articles from 1995 to 2013 were included. A… Expand
Effect of green tea consumption on blood pressure: A meta-analysis of 13 randomized controlled trials
TLDR
The meta-analysis suggested that green tea consumption had a favorable effect on decrease of BP, and suggested that the positive effect of green tea polyphenols on BP was only showed in studies using a low-dose green tea Polyphenol. Expand
Flaxseed consumption may reduce blood pressure: a systematic review and meta-analysis of controlled trials.
TLDR
The present meta-analysis suggests that consumption of flaxseed may lower blood pressure slightly, and the beneficial potential ofFlaxseed to reduce blood pressure may be greater when it is consumed as a whole seed and for a duration of >12 wk. Expand
Effects Of Tea Consumption On Measures Of Cardiovascular Disease: A Systematic Review Of Meta-Analysis Studies And Randomised Controlled Trials
TLDR
Tea drinking appears to play a significant role in blood pressure reduction, particularly amongst those with prehypertension or hypertension, and green tea has beneficial effects on total and LDL cholesterol reduction. Expand
Systematic review of green tea epigallocatechin gallate in reducing low-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels of humans
TLDR
It was concluded that consumption of green tea EGCG resulted in a significant reduction of LDL-C at any baseline level and any dose between 107 and 856 mg/d, and the effect size was slightly dependent on the baseline lipid level of the subjects. Expand
Effects of green tea on lipid metabolism in overweight or obese people: A meta‐analysis of randomized controlled trials
TLDR
The meta-analysis shows that drinking green tea can lower plasma TC and LDL levels significantly, and green tea's effect on plasma TG and HDL must be further evaluated by additional high-quality and large-scale RCTs. Expand
A comparative study of the effect of green tea and sour tea on blood pressure and lipid profile in healthy adult men
TLDR
Sour tea supplementation led to decreased systolic blood pressure in healthy men compared with the placebo, but there was no significant difference between their effects on DBP and lipid profile. Expand
