Green Tea saves from sepsis
Haychao Wang, leader of a team of scientists from the U.S. Institute of Medicine has decided to use for this epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) - extracted from green tea leaves substance. EGCG has been isolated by researchers from the University of Michigan in April of this year. They demonstrated its efficacy in the treatment of other autoimmune diseases - rheumatoid arthritis. Wang suggested that the cure for sepsis in green tea may be appropriate. And I was right: the survival of mice with sepsis treated with EGCG, increased from 53% to 82%. Feynshtenskie experts showed that the material counteracts inflammation. If we add here a tonic effect of other components of green tea on the cardiovascular system and lungs, you get a very effective remedy. No wonder the Chinese have been using green tea for thousands of years.
