“…GK12 was linolenic acid which is essential for mammals (Nakamura et al 2001). The strain could therefore provide a nutritional supplement for the amelioration of essential fatty acid deficiency-related syndromes, such as atopic dermatitis (Levin and Maibach 2002). During preparation of the experimental diets, almost all AXA in feed-G remained intact, while AXA in feeds-S and -H were significantly degraded.…”

“…The major and most-active constituent in green tea responsible for these biological effects is (À)-epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). With respect to the skin, green tea extracts and EGCG itself have been reported to be beneficial in treating UV-induced photodamage, basal cell carcinomas (BCCs), melanomas, and skin papillomas [3][4][5][6]. Hence, green tea catechins may be suitable to be the therapeutic agents or adjuvants for treating skin disorders [2,7].…”
