Our review aims to examine the cellular and molecular mechanisms of cardiovascular protection of green tea polyphenols, particularly epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), which focuses on the anti-oxidative and anti-inflammatory effects. EGCG is the major and the most active component in green tea. Studies have shown that EGCG protects cellular damage by inhibiting DNA damage and oxidation of LDL. One of the protective properties of EGCG is its ability to scavenge free radicals. EGCG can also reduce… Expand
