Green Tea together with starchy food may help lower blood sugar. Mice fed an antioxidant found in green tea and corn starch had a significant reduction in increase in their blood sugar levels compared to mice that were not fed the compound. The difference was about 50%.
The amount of the antioxidant what was given the mice was equivalent to about one and a half cups of green tea for a human.
The antioxidant was most effective when it was fed to the mice simultaneously with corn starch. For humans, this may mean that green tea could help them control the typical blood sugar increases that are brought on when they eat starchy foods like breads.
The study has only been done on mice so far. The researchers are hoping to get permission to do human testing.
