  • Green tea is a popular worldwide beverage, and its potential beneficial effects such as anti-cancer and anti-oxidant properties are believed to be mediated by epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), a major constituent of polyphenols. [...] Key Result EGCG promoted hair growth in hair follicles ex vivo culture and the proliferation of cultured DPCs.Expand Abstract
