Can Green Tea Help Sjogren’s Syndrome and Type 1 Diabetes?

Green tea has been (and is still being) studied the world over for its health benefits and has been found to be helpful for everything from cardiovascular health to cancer. Now green tea is adding Sjorgren’s Syndrome and Type 1 Diabetes to its list of conditions it can help treat. In a recent study, green tea was shown to slow down and help reduce the severity of symptoms in mice with Sjorgren’s syndrome; it was also shown to slow down and perhaps even prevent type 1 diabetes in mice. The study focused on the catechin called epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG).

The following article gives a very thorough overview of the details and findings of the study held at the Medical College of Georgia, including surprising statistics. It also tells how the study was focused on Sjorgren’s syndrome, and how finding out that it could help delay and prevent type 1 diabetes was a welcomed surprise. In addition, this article gives information and knowledge about green tea and its various health-promoting effects.
