Green tea , is a beverage that is popular worldwide. Polyphenols in green tea have been receiving attention for the maintenance of human health . The contribution of antioxidant activity in preventing diseases caused by oxidative stress has been focused upon. Hyperhomocysteinemia (Hhcy)is a risk factor for cardiovascular disease.
In this study we investigated the effects of green tea extract (GTE) on isoprenaline (ISO)-inducedmyocardialinfarction (MI) in hyperhomocysteinemic rats. Hhcy was induced by daily intake of methionine (1gkg-1body weight) in the drinking water for 4 weeks. MI was then produced by a single subcutaneous injection of ISO (300mgkg-1).Electrographic parameters, heart rate, ST interval, blood pressure and serum levels of creatine kinase (CK), lactate dehydrogenase (LDH)&SGOT & lipid peroxidation (MDA&GSH) were measured in heart tissue as indices of oxidative stress.
Hhcy resulted in significant blood pressure reduction, ST segment elevation and increase in heart rate, serum CK & LDH levels. Cardiac MDA was significantly increased, while GSH was decreased as compared to normal control group. All the previously mentioned parameters were significantly exaggerated in Hhcy rats treated with ISO as compared to Hhcy group. Administration of GTE during the induction of Hhcy showed a considerable reduction in serum markers of cardiotoxicity, heart rate, elevated ST segment & significant improve in the reduced blood pressure. Cardiac MDA was decreased while cardiac GSH was elevated . Hhcy+ISO caused disorganization of myocardial tissue which was restored in animals treated with GTE along with Hhcy+ISO.
It can be concluded that GTE possesses an antioxidant activity and by virtue of this action it can protect the heart from Hhcy alone or Hhcy+ISO induced MI.

Due to the individualised philosophy of naturopaths they prescribe individual herbal formulations for their patients. In practice, this means that the majority of naturopathy consultations result in the extemporaneous compounding of a prescription. Naturopaths using herbal medicines predominately prescribe fluid extracts (which use a mixture of water and ethanol as the solvent, extracting using a process of maceration or cold percolation). The second most common prescription by naturopaths who use herbal medicine are herbal teas – that is combinations of dried herb material to be used by the patient to make tea. In the case of herbal teas, the mixing of different herb material for therapeutic purposes constitutes extemporaneous compounding. While herbal medicines are most commonly prescribed for internal use, a small percentage of herbal prescriptions by herbalists are for other traditional forms of herbal application, including extemporaneously compounded creams and poultices. Naturopaths are limited in their prescriptions by the Poisons Standard 2012; unlike pharmacists they cannot extemporaneously compound or dispense any substance included in Schedule 2, 3, or 4 of this Standard. What this means is that medicines prescribed by naturopaths are of a low risk nature. The use of compounding pharmacies to help a naturopathic practitioner prescribe schedule 2 and 3 compounds can be extremely beneficial for practices.
