Abstract

It has long been recognized that obesity is major risk factor for numbers of disorders including diabetes, hypertension, and heart diseases. For these, adipocytes play a central role in maintaining lipid homeostasis and energy balance in vertebrates by storing triacylglycerols (TGs) and releasing free fatty acids (FFAs) in response to changes in energy demands. Last few years, numerous studies regarding green tea catechins (GTCs) are reported to exhibit a variety of biological activities including cancer prevention and cardiovascular health. Furthermore, the obesity-preventive effects of green tea and its main constituent especially (-)-epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) are widely supported by results from epidemiological, cell culture, animal, and clinical studies. In this review, the biological activities and multiple mechanisms of EGCG in vitro and in vivo studies including animal models and clinical observations are explained.
