EGCG (Epigallocatechin gallate), the compound in green tea is one of the most anti-cancer compounds known.
In a case study titled “A Case Report of Unexpectedly Long Survival of a Woman with CLL,” a woman has kept her Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia stable since 2001, and as part of her protocol she used high dose EGCG.
How high is “high dose”? 1800 mg! That’s about 10 cups of green tea per day!
In another study pictured below EGCG dramatically reduced tumor burden with chemically induced colon cancer in mice!
EGCG stops cancer cells from multiplying and induces death of cancer stem cells by suppressing WNT/B-Catenin pathway-study here!
EGCG vs Bladder Cancer! Below is a chart of anticancer effect of green tea in animals with bladder cancer.
EGCG helps stop Metastasis! Below is a chart of the effect of green tea on metastasis in animals.
And if that wasn’t enough, EGCG inhibits Fusobacterium which linked to several cancer types but especially colorectal cancer! “The tea extracts and components displayed various degrees of antibacterial activity that may involve damage to the bacterial cell membrane and the chelation of iron.”
