OPINION: Dr Ken Romeo 775-870-6942
Green tea may be cardioprotective because it has been shown to decrease LDL cholesterol
and triglycerides. I t has also been shown increase HDL cholesterol.
Green tea should be considered as a part of most anti aging diets.
But be warned, Green Tea should not be used in patients who are receiving bortezomib, a chemotherapy agent used to treat multiple myeloma and mantle cell lymphoma.
Green Tea has a nominal adverse side effect profile with most of the side effects being associated with its caffeine content. These include gastrointestinal upset, insomnia, and irritability.
Yours in Health!
