Key words:

green tea, black pepper, epigallocatechin-3-gallate, piperine, inflammation, bioavailability

Research Institution:

The Pennsylvania State University

This study is testing the hypothesis that the compounds piperine, found in black pepper, and epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), found in green tea, will synergistically inhibit inflammation-related colon carcinogenesis.
