https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.1002/ptr.5827 – Lupus – Anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory benefit of green tea (Camellia sinensis ) in autoimmune disease has been proven in recent studies. The objective of this study was to assess the effects of green tea on disease activity and quality of life in systemic lupus erythematosus patients. Green tea extract supplementation significantly reduced disease activity in lupus patients while it significantly increased the vitality and general health. This study showed that daily consumption of green tea extracts for 12 weeks improves the systemic lupus erythematosus disease activity as well as some aspects of quality of life.
