Green tea and antioxidants to be showcased at Dubai Tea Health World Congress

United Arab Emirates: Thursday, November 05 - 2009 @ 16:18

Dubai Tea Health World Congress will be held in December 3 & 4 at Shangri-La, in Dubai.

This event also includes a satellite symposium “Tea extracts as a future drug?” to explore the potential applications of tea and its extracts to treat many diseases.

Green Tea: a powerful antioxidant to prevent Obesity, Cancers, Cardiovascular Diseases, Neurodegenerative Diseases and Ageing

The aims of Tea Conference 2009 are to discuss the latest advances in tea and health and highlight the recent innovations and applications of tea, tea extracts and tea polyphenols in nutraceutical, cosmeceutical and pharmaceutical products.

Pr Marvin Edeas, Chairman of the Scientific Committee and President of ISANH, highlighted “our objective is to provide answers and to give a future vision of how Tea Polyphenols as natural antioxidants can enhance human nutrition and help in the prevention and treatment of many chronic diseases.

We need a good antioxidant that can increase the antioxidant defences systems, decrease oxidative stress and inflammation. The difference between green tea antioxidants and other classic antioxidants (such as Vitamins) is that we have many credible studies that demonstrated their beneficial effects on health and they are more naturals than synthetic antioxidants. We must also talk more about controversies and contradictions concerning tea consumption on anaemia and the impact of milk or other proteins on tea bioavailability. (English people are among the first consumers of tea in Europe, however, we observed less protective effects than Chinese or Japanese consumers.)

During Tea and Health World Congress, academics will be gathered to talk about various subjects:

• Tea and the Prevention of Chronic Diseases
• Bioavailability of Tea and Tea Extracts
• Nutraceutical Applications of Tea Polyphenols
• Tea and Skin-Ageing
• Slimming and Weight Management effects of Tea Polyphenols and Tea Extracts
• Anti-stress and well-being effects of Tea and Tea Extracts

“Tea extracts as a future drug?” satellite event
Tea extracts used as a future drug is the focus of the Friday session when Pr Ping Dou, from Karmanos Center Institute and Wayne State University, USA, will open proceedings with a presentation on roles of tea polyphenols as a potential anticancer agent.

Finally there will be time for the presentation of abstracts, submitted in advance, on tea and tea extracts related products.
