Abstract: Numerous epidemiological studies have reported inverse associations between tea consumption and cardiovascular events. Among the many mono- and polymeric polyphenolic compounds found in green and black tea, investigators have recently focused on the catechins, in part because they are more readily measurable, but also because catechin intake correlates inversely with cardiovascular risk. Scientists working in USA and Netherlands conducted studies to investigate potential mechanisms of the effect of black tea consumption in patients with coronary artery disease. They recently reported that chronic black tea consumption improves endothelial function and increases total plasma catechins in patients with coronary artery disease. The present study was conducted to investigate the possible contribution of individual catechins to the observed improvement in endothelial function. In addition, they measured systemic markers of oxidative stress and inflammation to gain further insight into the potential mechanisms of benefit.
