Introduction: Chamomile tea (CT) is an herbal tea and is served as a beneficial herbal infusion all over the world. Its major polyphenols constituents and tea-catechins have been shown to have health benefits. Operating room staff are commonly exposed to damaging factors, such as radiation, waste anesthetic gases and psychological stress. One of the most important qualities of CT is its antioxidant property. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of CT in reducing the oxidative…

The Effect of Consuming Green Tea on Blood Oxidative Biomarkers in Operating Room Personnel
According to the results of this study, green tea consumption as an antioxidant supplement by operating room personnel, who are regularly exposed to anesthetic gases, can minimize oxidative stress and DNA damage considerably.
Association between genotoxic properties of inhalation anesthetics and oxidative stress biomarkers
The findings of the present study indicated that exposure to IAs was associated with OS, and this, in turn, may be causally linked with DNA damage.
Effect of Green Tea Supplementation on Antioxidant Status in Adults: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis of Randomized Clinical Trials
It is well-established that green tea supplementation has antioxidant properties. However, whether green tea supplementation leads to oxidative stress reduction remains unclear, as clinical


A Review of the bioactivity and potential health benefits of chamomile tea (Matricaria recutita L.)
Evidence‐based information regarding the bioactivity of this herb is presented, and animal model studies indicate potent antiinflammatory action, some antimutagenic and cholesterol‐lowering activities, as well as antispasmotic and anxiolytic effects.
The Role of Tea in Human Health: An Update
In vitro and animal studies provide strong evidence that tea polyphenols may possess the bioactivity to affect the pathogenesis of several chronic diseases, especially cardiovascular disease and cancer, but international correlations do not support this relationship.
In vivo antioxidant effect of green and black tea in man.
The paper shows that tea possesses a strong antioxidant activity in vitro which is believed to be exerted by its polyphenols moiety, and provides compelling evidence that tea has also a potent in vivo activity in man.
Chamomile: A herbal medicine of the past with a bright future (Review)
The use of chamomile in traditional medicine is described with regard to evaluating its curative and preventive properties, and recent findings for its development as a therapeutic agent promoting human health are highlighted.
Oxidative stress in operating room personnel: occupational exposure to anesthetic gases
The remaining blood total antioxidant capacity at normal values is promising and means that other non-thiol antioxidants, such as uric acid, transferrin, ceruloplasmin, albumin, and vitamin antioxidants, have been stimulated to maintain the total anti-oxidant power of the body at normal state.
Guaianolides and Volatile Compounds in Chamomile Tea
The dichloromethane extract of the infusion contained a lower amount of bisabolol oxides and chamazulene, but higher amounts of spiroethers, sesquiterpene lactones and coumarins, as compared to the hydrodistillates of the herbal drug and the infusion.
Black and green tea polyphenols attenuate blood pressure increases in stroke-prone spontaneously hypertensive rats.
Data demonstrate that both black and green tea polyphenols attenuate blood pressure increases through their antioxidant properties in SHRSP, which indicates that the regular consumption of black andgreen tea may also provide some protection against hypertension in humans.
Tea and health.
A growing body of evidence suggests that moderate consumption of tea may protect against several forms of cancer, cardiovascular diseases, the formation of kidney stones, bacterial infections, and dental cavities.
