“Helicobacter” is a common bacterium that causes infection in the stomach. The bacteria can cause ulcers to form and even lead to cancer. Treatment usually involves a course of two different antibiotics. Not everyone responds to treatment, however.

For the study, a research team assessed the “bactericidal” (bacteria-killing) effect of green tea against Helicobacter. They also evaluated the effects of green tea on the development of Helicobacter-induced gastritis in an animal model. According to the research team, the study data clearly demonstrated Continue reading →
