The use of plants for healing purposes hasbeen predated long before the
existence of modern medicine. Herbal plants have formed a fundamental source
for conventional medicine in discovery of single ingredient medication,
including aspirin (from willow bark), quinine (from cinchona bark), and
morphine (from the opium poppy)......

A recent study conducted by renowned institute suggested that regular drinking

of green tea may reduce risk of prevalence of metabolic syndrome.

Green tea, a precious drink processes numbers of health benefit known to

almost everyone in Asia and Western world. However, as yin in nature herbal
medicine ,or food, long term injection of large amounts may obstruct the
balance of yin-yang, induced "yin excessive syndrome" or "yang vacuity
syndrome" including weaken immunity and painful case of GERD,... according
to traditional Chinese medicine's Yin-Yang theory.

Metabolic syndrome is a biochemical and physiological factors associated with

risk of cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes.

In a cross-sectional population-based survey including 8,821 adults (51.4%

female) conducted in Krakow, Poland., both coffee and tea drinker showed a
negatively associated with MetS (OR 0.75, 95% CI 0.66, 0.86 and OR 0.79,
95% CI 0.67, 0.92, respectively).
The study also found that high tea consumers had lower BMI, waist
circumference, but moderated decreased diastolic blood pressure, as well as
negatively correlated central obesity and fasting plasma glucose in women, but
not in men, in compared low drinker,

Other, in the study of dietary polyphenols, a major compound found in green

tea including 8821 adults (51.4 % female), using food frequency questionnaires
and matching food consumption data with the Phenol-Explorer
database.conducted in Krakw, Poland, dietary polyphenol intake in the highest
quartile was associated inversely to the development of MetS (OR 0.80; 95 %
CI 0.64, 0.98 and OR 0.70; 95 % CI 0.56, 0.86 for both men and women,
Dietary polyphenols in high quality showed a negative association of WC,
blood pressure, high lipoprotein cholesterol, and triglycerides in women, and
fasting plasma glucose in both gender..

Dr. Grosso G, the lead author said, "(Depending to types of polyphenols)

phenolic acids and stilbenes were significantly associated with MetS; lignans
and stilbenes with WC; phenolic acids with blood pressure and triglycerides;
and flavonoids with fasting plasma glucose" and " Among specific subclasses
of polyphenols, hydroxycinnamic acids, flavanols, and dihydrochalcones had
the most relevant role."

In support the role of used of polyphenol for treatment of Metabolic syndrome,

in a total of 2725 participants free of hypertension at baseline tested for blood
pressure or taking hypertensive medication within the last 2 weeks at 2-4-year
follow-up visit was conducted by the Integrated Cancer Registry of Catania-
Messina-Siracusa-Enna, researchers showed that diet of highest quartile of total
polyphenol intake was associated with 31% decreased risk of hypertension
compared with the lowest intake (OR 0.69, 95% CI 0.48, 0.98) in women with
no significant association in men.

The study also stated that most influential phytochemicals in reduced risk and
treatment of metabolic syndrome ingredients are phenolic acids,
hydroxycynnamic acids as they showed a independently associated to lower
odds of hypertension (OR 0.66, 95% CI 0.47, 0.93) in comparison to others.

Taking together, green tea with major chemical compounds of polyphenol may
be used as functional foods in prevention and treatment of metabolic syndrome.
