Matcha protects the body against the damaging side effects of medication, but may also affect the operation of the medication.
Matcha is packed with polyphenols, which are very good for you. It also contains natural caffeine and many EGCG molecules, which stop cancer.
When you drink matcha you drink the whole tea leaf, which means you absorb all the goodness.
I drink it before exercising, after exercising, I'm a real green tea junkie.Attila Hildmann, vegan celebrity chef and bestselling author, Germany
Because the EGCGs in Matcha stimulate cancer cells to self-destruct, superfood Matcha can be used in support of chemotherapy. The EGCGs in Matcha strengthen the therapeutic effect of medication for brain tumours. Matcha reduces kidney damage, intestinal infections and liver poisoning caused by medication. However, the catechins in the green tea may also bind to certain medication and thus reduce the effect of the medication. Because of the effect of Matcha on medication, cancer patients who use Matcha as tea or superfood, need extra follow-up.
Matcha and science: Medication
|Matcha may diminish the effect of synthetic medication.||19|
|Tea catechins may bind to certain medication and thus diminish the effect of the medication. Matcha and supplements with green tea may thus diminish the effect of synthetic medication.||24|
|Polymeric nanoparticles of EGCGs in Matcha have proven their anti-cancer effect and strengthen the effect of Cisplatin, which is used worldwide.||104|
|Contrary to resveratrol (in e.g. red grapes) the EGCGs in Matcha have a protective effect in case of kidney toxicity (caused by Cisplatin). On a molecular level Cisplatin causes oxidative stress and infections, which are broken down by the EGCGs.||106|
|Because of the effect of Matcha and medication, cancer patients who drink Matcha need extra examinations.||109|
|Two of the main flavonoids in Matcha have a substantial effect on OATPs (organic anion-transporting polypeptides), which means they may change the effect of medication.||119|
|The EGCGs in Matcha strengthen the therapeutic effect of Temozolomide, medication for brain tumours.||121|
|Absorption of medication in the plasma improves by taking catechins.||125|
|Matcha and a combination of Matcha with Sulphasalazine reduce intestinal infections.||137|
|The gallocatechins in Matcha and the curcuminoids in ginger seem very suitable to be combined separately and together with antibiotics and cancer medication.||138|
|Matcha reduces kidney toxicity (caused by Gentamicin).||143|
|The EGCGs in Matcha regulate the effect of two molecules with a key role in the conversion of medication in the body. In addition to the anti-cancer-effect, Matcha shows good results in the treatment of breast cancer of patients who are Tamoxifen resistant.||188|
|Matcha reduces kidney damage caused by medication.||195|
|Royal jelly and green tea extracts protect kidneys against the harmful effects of medication such as Cisplatin.||211|
|The use of Matcha may interact with certain medication.||261|
|The EGCGs in Matcha stimulate cancer cells to self-destruct. This means Matcha supports the chemotherapeutic effect (in cancer of the bile duct).||270|
|A food supplement with lysine, proline, ascorbic acid and green tea extract can be a useful supplement in the prevention of acute liver poisoning by medication.||298|
