Lise Alschuler, ND, FABNO
Tea derived from the plant Camellia Sinesis can be classified as green tea, oolong tea, or black tea, depending on its level of fermentation. Green tea has been shown to reduce cholesterol and fasting blood glucose levels in the general population. Additionally, small trials suggest there may be specific benefits to the diabetic population. This study aims to evaluate the effectiveness of tea or its extracts on the metabolic profile of patients with type 2 diabetes.
