Title : Role of black tea antioxidants in brain disorder


Black tea, known for its antioxidant properties, has garnered attention for its potential therapeutic effects on brain disorders. In this study, we delve into the specific role of black tea antioxidants, focusing on their compositional analysis, extraction methods, and neuroprotective benefits, particularly through the isolation. This study explores the therapeutic and antioxidant potential of black tea, focusing on compositional analysis, polyphenol extraction, and the neuroprotective effects of theaflavin. Black tea demonstrated significant nutritional composition, particularly in protein and fiber. Ethanol proved to be the most effective solvent for extraction, with optimal results observed at 60 minutes. Extracts displayed notable antioxidant activity, while isolated theaflavin exhibited even higher antioxidant capacity. In efficacy experiments on male albino mice with sciatic nerve injury, theaflavin treatment led to improved functional recovery, muscle mass restoration, and decreased oxidative stress markers. These findings highlight the potential of theaflavin-rich diets in preventing lifestyle-related brain disorders.
