Green Tea Extract 250 mg


Natural source of antioxidants. Proven aid for weight reduction.

Green tea is a natural source of antioxidants, which neutralize harmful molecules in the body known as free radicals. Researchers have found that epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), an antioxidant-like compound found in green tea, is over 200 times more powerful than vitamin E in neutralizing pro-oxidants and free radicals.

Studies have already shown that green tea may lead to a lower risk of skin, lung and prostate cancer, but now, it appears that the nutrient’s EGCG may be effective at lowering the risk of esophageal cancer. Researchers at Harvard Medical School and VA Boston Healthcare System found that EGCG effectively inhibited the growth and reproduction of esophageal cancer cells. It was found that EGCG induced “cell suicide,” preventing the cancerous cells from replicating. In addition, increased EGCG concentration led to a higher rate of cell suicide, with no harm to healthy cells.

In recent studies, green tea extract (standardized to 90 mg of EGCG) increased the 24-hour energy expenditure in human subjects, thus aiding in weight reduction. Plus, the antioxidants of green tea are also beneficial for the heart, as they help decrease levels of LDL ("bad") cholesterol. In addition, green tea contains a small amount of caffeine (1% or 5 mg), so it serves as a mild appetite suppressant.

Highly Recommended
by A G

I wanted a weight loss supplement that would help me lose the few extra pounds I gained over the holidays. I have lost most of them, but a few are hanging on, so I decided to try the green tea supplement. I didn’t feel like drinking a ridiculous amount of tea to get the same results from 1-2 supplements. I personally do not like the taste of green tea so the supplements work great for me. I HIGHLY recommend this product to anyone trying to lose those extra pounds.


Better than the real stuff
by Silvio Chiba

I'm part Japanese, but I absolutely hate the taste of Green Tea. Over the years I have heard about all the great health effects green tea has on the body. So I decided to take some green tea supplements. Once I started taking this product I began to feel more awake and my blood pressure also went down. This product is all natural and makes you feel great everyday.


Love this product!
by Sarah

I am not a huge fan of drinking green tea (don't like the taste of it), so someone suggested taking it in pill form. This product not only helped me to lose weight, it gave me a burst of energy and it made me feel much better overall. I like that you only have to take 1 pill per day, unlike some other brands where you have to take several per day. The price is affordable and this product lasted me over 3 months. I will definitely be buying this product in the future! I love it!


Benefit from green tea, but... not enough
by Vivian

I drink tea every day, 6-8 cups total, mostly black tea, yet, at least once, but usually twice a day I have green tea or white tea. I am almost 50 and I credit my reasonably good health to black, green and white tea. Green tea is perfect for evening time, it helps me to relax and get prepared for bed. I do not think that green tea extract may work as a replacement of the cup of green tea. However, for people who do not like drinking tea, taking a green tea extract capsule might help them to stay healthy and active. Yes, dosage of the capsule is not high enough to reduce weight.




A little to pricey
by Kristina

Not that this isn't a good product, but it just isn't worth the money. There are much more effective products out their for a fraction of the money. This is a very low dose pill and if you really want results you would want a product with a higher dosage. Green tea is supposed to be good for you heart, weight, and many other things but this is not as good for your health as other products.
