Tuty Anggraini


Tea (Camellia sinensis) very rich in flavonoids and one of the important plant in the world. The six major flavan-3-ols occurring in tea are catechin (C), gallocatechin (GC), epicatechin (EC), epigallocatechin (EGC), epicatechin-3-gallate (EGG), and epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG). Theaflavins and thearubigins are a group of polyphenol pigments formed during the fermentation of black tea This paper identified the deaseas can cured with the tea properties by literature reviewed. Besides the tea component itself, cancer can prevent with synergyc with capsicum. At a ratio of 25 parts green tea concentrate to 1 part Capsicum preparation, the resultant product exhibited efficacy in the killing of cancer cells in culture 100-times that of green tea on a weight basis. The tea property/polyphenols can use for cancer such as pancreatic cancer, tumor, immortalized keratinocytes and skin cancer cell lines, breast cancer, breaks in bone marrow cells of leukaemic, reduce skin tumor cell, anti-inflammatory, prevent influenza infection in children. Tea pyphenols in black tea nor green tea can reduce human cancer cells, tumor, breast cancer, anti-inflammatory, leukemia and to prevent influenza. EGCG to treat pancreatic cancer, skin cancer, reduce skin tumor cell and keratinocytes. EC for anticancer therapy against acute myeloid leukemia and TF, TR for treating human skin cancer cells.
