Mixing coffee with tea does not appear to be a tasty idea, but it will decrease lipid levels and protect against Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD): A pharmaceutical mixture encompassing Caffeine and catechins decreases the levels of HMGCR,  triglycerides, free cholesterol, and total cholesterol and decelerates the progression of NAFLD, via up-regulation of its target gene, 15/May/2019, 12.08 am

The significance of the study:

Given that: (1)  15-30% of Western populations suffer from Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), while 6-25% of Asian populations suffer from it; (2) 75 to 100 million people in the US succumb to this disease; (3) obesity and type 2 diabetes are risk factor for the development of NAFLD;  and (4) the global economic cost spent for NAFLD is enormous, there is an urgent need to find: (i) a way to decrease cholesterol deposition in liver; (ii) a cheaper alternative to the existing expensive drugs; (iii) a side-effect-free natural product-based drug; and (iv) a way to cure, not just treat, NAFLD.


Research findings to Therapeutic opportunity:

This study  provides mechanistic insights into how a pharmaceutical mixture encompassing Caffeine and catechins may decrease lipid levels.  A pharmaceutical mixture encompassing Caffeine and catechins, by increasing the expression of its target gene, it may increase the expression of HMGCR (Fig.1). Thereby, it may: (1) decrease triglycerides, free cholesterol, and total cholesterol levels; (2) decrease lipid deposition in the liver; and (3) attenuates NAFLD (Fig. 1). Thus, a pharmaceutical mixture encompassing Caffeine and catechins may used to decrease/control lipid levels/obesity/weight gain and to treat NAFLD.

Figure 2.   Caffeine, in conjunction with catechins, decreases cholesterol and triglyceride levels and attenuates NAFLD, through downregulation of HMGCR
