Abstract

This study aimed to investigate the of effect aqueous extract of red tea on average of glucose and lipid profile in New Zealand white male rabbits exposed to oxidative stress induced hydrogen peroxide H2O2 of drinking water for the duration 30-days. Treatment of  hydrogen peroxide 2% led alone to a significant increase (P≤0.05) in the concentration of glucose level and the concentration of total cholesterol rate and level of triglycerides and a significant decrease (P ≤ 0.05) in the level of estimating the concentration of high-density cholesterol in the blood serum lipoproteins and a significant increase in the concentration of lipoproteins and very low-lying density cholesterol was significantly higher in atherogenic indices the first and second, respectively, in the blood of animals treated with hydrogen peroxide compared to the control group. It got a significant decrease (P≤0.05) in the concentration of glucose and cholesterol rate and triglycerides and in the concentration of lipoproteins and sessile very density cholesterol and in the atherogenic indices first and second respectively, as happened morally rise in the level of estimating the concentration of high-density lipoproteins cholesterol in the labor animal blood serum aqueous extract of red tea (125 mg / kg of body weight) added all of the hydrogen peroxide compared with the group treated rabbits hydrogen peroxide alone. It is concluded from this current study, the important role of the Red tea as an antioxidant through curb the harmful effects of some types of free radicals within the body and thus improve the most changes biochemical changes in the male albino rabbits  after exposure to oxidative stress Induced by hydrogen Peroxide 2% .
