Matcha Green Tea May Inhibit Cancer Growth, a Study Finds

As explained on One Green Planet, a recent study done at the Unversity of Salford, UK, suggests that Matcha green tea may be a viable tool against cancer due to its potent anti-cancer characteristics.

For the purposes of the study, the researchers used an estrogen receptive, human breast cancer cell line to find out if the Matcha tea influences the breast cancer on a cellular level.

The Research of Matcha Green Tea

In the last couple of years, green tea was found to be able to curb cancer stem-like cells. With the goal to investigate the potential of Matcha, a type of green tea, they tested its connection to cellular metabolism, all with a goal to discover if it has the power to inhibit cancer growth.

The research help conclude that Matcha green tea was able to suppress the cancer cell propagation by 50 percent! It does this by lowering the mitochondrial metabolism and glycolysis. Matcha tea keeps the cancerous cells in a dormant state and averts their growth. Even though further research is needed, Matcha green tea may be pivotal for a natural inhibition of cancer.

So, why wait?! Include it to your daily diet as soon as possible and start reaping its numerous health advantages!
