with borderline diabetes

     In this study sixty men and women with borderline diabetes between the ages of 32 to 73 consumed either Green Tea powder or placebo daily for two months. The powdered Green Tea supplied a daily dose of 544 mg of Polyphenols. Then they switched groups for the second two months.
     While on Green Tea powder the AIC dropped significantly; this improvement demonstrates a significant benefit for improving blood sugar and insulin sensitivity. The Green Tea powder also improved diastolic blood pressure readings. The study is published in the current issue of the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
