Ethanol metabolism is accompanied by generation of free radicals, which stimulates lipid peroxidation. Natural antioxidants are particularly useful in such a situation. The current study was designed to investigate the efficacy of green tea, as a source of water-soluble antioxidants (catechins), on lipid peroxidation in liver, brain, and blood induced by chronic (4 weeks) ethanol intoxication in rats. Feeding of ethanol led to a significant increase in lipid peroxidation, as measured by… CONTINUE READING
