Abstract: Diabetes mellitus is a disorder of metabolism and associated with long-term complications that affect eyes, heart, blood vessel, and kidney function. Though oral hypoglycemic agents and insulin are the main prevention and therapy treatment of diabetes, but they have severe side effects and fail to significantly alter the course of diabetic complications. As one of the most popular beverages consumed worldwide, green tea is being widely studied for its health benefits in recent years. In vitro and in vivo studies provide strong evidence that green tea presents a great prophylactic and therapeutic effect against diabetes. This review summarizes the beneficial effects of green tea on diabetes prevention and treatment.
