ABSTRACT

The herbs are being used from centuries for remedies from common ailments to potential diseases. The commonly used plant products like turmeric, cinnamon, clove. have different pharmacological effects. While Rauwoifia serpentina is the first and oldest herb to have anti hypertensive and as remedy for Schizophrenia. Though it is being used still in ayurveda but its use in allopathy is greatly limited because of suicidal tendency as side effect. In current studies we did research on Green Tea (Camellia sinensis) for its effects on PEFR. Green tea contains alkaloids on an average, 3% to 4% of caffeine and very small amounts of other alkaloids known as methylxanthines, such as caffeine, theobromine and theophylline, having proven bronchodilator effects along with, L–theanine. Graham[1] found that fresh leaves of Green tea contains polyphenols and catechins which are antioxidant and have number of other beneficial effects like antiaging, blood glucose lowering and even anti cancerous effect We have selected healthy college students both male and female for current study to show effect of green tea on Peak Expiratory Flow Rate (PEFR). This is very important physiological parameter effecting our body and moreover with increasing number people including young children and adults becoming asthmatic and intolerant to present pollution levels the PEFR – parameter is selected to ascertain their lung functioning, which directly shows lungs capacity.
