Here's the scoop on the benefits of Green Tea for HPV highlighted by medical
The FDA approved a topical green tea cream comprised
of catechins from green tea leaves to treat genital warts caused by strains 6
and 11. The efficacy and safety of this topical green tea extract was confirmed
by a randomized trial on 397 adults with HPV genital warts. People who applied
the treatment 3 times a day had complete
clearance of warts in 16 weeks (Stockfleth 2008).
Another research group reviewed the
effectiveness of green tea extracts in the form of ointment or capsules in treating patients with HPV infected
cervical lesions aka cervical dysplasia. A group of 51 women with cervical
lesions was divided into 4 groups and 39 patients were placed in an untreated
control group. There was a 69% positive
response rate in the treated with green tea extract compared to just a 10%
response in the untreated placebo group! (Ahn et al 2003).
This promising research shows that green tea extract can
serve as a worthwhile natural therapy for men and women with HPV associated
cervical lesions (CIN) or genital warts.
