Possible Interaction: Ethanol and Green Tea Extract



Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

Binge ethanol administration (by gavage every 6 h for 24 h) was used to induce acute liver injury, and GTE was administered 90 min prior to every ethanol administration.
RESULTS When GTE, but not GC-decreased GT , w as administered immediately before eth anol in take, the blood ethanol and acetaldehyde levels were significantly lower than those in the control.

After 4 weeks, serum ALT levels were increased significantly about 4-fold over control values (35±3 IU/l) by enteral ethanol (114±18); inclusion of green tea extract in the diet significantly blunted this increase (65±10).
Furthermore, ethanol significantly increased the accumulation of protein adducts of 4-hydroxynonenal, a product of lipid peroxidation and an index of oxidative stress; green tea extract blocked this effect almost completely.
While not affecting fat accumulation or inflammation, green tea extract significantly blunted increases in necrosis caused by ethanol.
