is known in the field of herbal medicine andstudies that it has beneficial effects such as antibacterial, antifungal, antidiabetes, and anti-inflammatory properties.We investigated whethertea consumption affects the plasma levels of lipid biomarkers in healthy volunteers.Thirty healthy Tunisian volunteers aged between 20 and 57 years old consumedinfusion, prepared from 5 g of driedleaves in 100 ml boiled water, once a day during 10 days. Plasma concentrations of serum low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, triglycerides and HDL (high-density lipoprotein) cholesterol were measured by Beckman Coulter D × 600 analyzer beforeconsumption and at the end of the experiment.tea consumption significantly increased the concentration of HDL cholesterol ([HDL cholesterol]= 1.34 ± 0.25 pg/mL,=1.42 ± 0.29, = 0.01). However, a slight decrease that was statistically non-significant in LDL cholesterol and triglycerides levels was observed ( < 0.05).These findings highlight the improving blood lipidic profiles, which means a possible positive effect on reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease oftea consumption in healthy volunteers. However, more powerful studies with an extended treatment period are required.
