In a series of laboratory tests involving mice, Jae-Hyung Park and his colleagues from the Keimyung University School of Medicine in the Republic of Korea tried mixing green tea extract with a non-toxic resin called polyethylene glycol. They found that this mixture helped slow down the body’s absorption of glucose and reduced weight gain and insulin resistance.
