Green tea came up on the boards about 3 weeks ago(?) after someone posted a research article that it reduced inflammation. (I am sorry I forget who started the thread?) Anyway, I started taking it regularly and my flare stopped within 10 days. I also got my 8th remicade infusion 2 weeks prior so I don't know if the remicade is what helped, the combination, or just the green tea. Yes, most likely it was the remicade but I do think taking 2 weeks is a long time for remicade to start doing anything. In the past, I have had much earlier reactions to it.
Either way, I noticed absolutely no side effects from the green tea and whatever I am doing now that is working....I am not stopping anything because i am experiencing the best health I have had in years.
Currently taking Green tea extract, Grape seed extract, Vitamin D, and Omegas every day. Remicade every 6 weeks.
Diagnosed with UC in 2013. Started double doses of Remicade every 4-5 weeks in June.
