    Does green tea inhibit EFA/CLA/sesamin absorption?


    anyone have any insight into the issue of green tea inhibiting the absorption of the two former fatty acids and the latter lignan?

    I had this same thought awhile back...it has to do with green tea supposedly inhibiting pancreatic and gastric enzymes which break down lipids, as well as possibly causing dietary lipids to emulsify more and cause less of it to be absorbed (I say possibly because the study I'm thinking of used olive oil as the lipid, which supposedly has very good emulsifying properties on its own).
