In SHRSP given 1% saline as ingesting water, addition of zero. five% crude catechins to the nutrition not just tended to suppress the blood strain to a non-significant volume relative to the regulate team, but in addition in actual fact lengthy the survival interval prior to demise as a result of stroke. 156 ZONG-MAO CHEN Ishigaki and Hara (1991) performed the blood strain decreasing scan through the use of tea polyphenols (dosage: four hundred mg/kg,×2 in succession of 3 months) on 21 volunteeradults (10 male and eleven female).
