Abstract

Green tea, derived from Camellia sinensis, has been recognized for its medicinal properties since ancient times. Rich in catechins, particularly (−)-epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), green tea is known for its diverse health benefits. While extensively studied for its antioxidative, neuroprotective, and anti-cancer effects, limited research has explored its potential in female reproductive disorders. This review highlights the bioactive components of green tea and their roles. Specifically, it delves into the potential benefits of green tea, particularly EGCG, in managing conditions such as endometriosis, dysmenorrhea, uterine fibroids, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), and menopause. Experimental evidence suggests promising effects, including apoptosis induction, anti-angiogenic and antifibrotic properties. Human studies also indicate potential improvements in weight, insulin sensitivity, and bone health. However, conclusive clinical evidence is lacking, necessitating further research to establish the efficacy and safety of green tea in addressing benign gynaecologic disorders.
