Onset of Type 1 diabetes may be delayed by Green TeaAccording to researchers from the Medical College of Georgia, a powerful antioxidant in green tea can delay or prevent the onset of type 1 diabetes.

EGCG (Epigallocatechin Gallate), the predominant antioxidant in green tea, was tested by researchers on a laboratory mouse with type 1 diabetes and primary Sjogren’s syndrome that damages moisture-producing glands leading to dry mouth and eyes.

The study, published in an issue of Life Sciences, supports earlier research displaying impact of EGCG on helping prevent autoimmune diseases.
