GREEN TEA WEIGHT LOSS PRODUCTS
How Effective Are They ?

Green Tea Weight Loss Products are one of a very select group of dietary supplements I can recommend without hesitation, right off the top of the page. There's no maybe here: I believe these products work, not only for weight control but also for rejuvenating the entire body.

Of course, if I speak so firmly, it's based my own experience: I started using green tea (not even the weight loss products, but regular green tea purchased at the supermarket), about 1 year back. From the first few days, I felt rejuvenated, my skin looked younger, and my mood was better. As far as weight control, it allowed me take in more calories and still maintain the same weight. From then on, I am a firm adept of drinking at least 2 cups of green tea per day.


Green Tea Weight Loss
Green Tea 300®

Green Tea 300® has received some great hype lately. Among others, it has been advertised as a product used by Hollywood celebrities for fat-burning and anti-aging purposes. Based on my own experience with green tea, I believe there is sufficient validity to these claims. Lets take a closer look at the ingredients in Green Tea® and find out how they work on the organism to achieve these actions.



Mechanism of Action:

Green Tea 300® is a concentrated extract of green tea leaf, containing high amounts of polyphenols and catechins with antioxidant properties. Among these, a substance named EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate) is particularly potent and effectively eliminates free radicals that cause aging and disease. In addition to these effects, polyphenols and catechins (and in particular EGCG) have a marked thermogenic action - which means they accelerate the metabolism and stimulate fat-burning processes.

Green Tea 300® does contains caffeine, which is a naturally occurring component of the green tea leaf. However, the amount of caffeine in one dose of Green Tea 300® is only about half that in a cup of coffee. Green Tea 300® does not contain Ephedra.


Here's a list of the main ingredients:

  • Green Tea Leaf extract (containing polyphenols, catechins, and caffeine)
  • Vitamin C
  • FiberSol (a soluble fiber which expands in the stomach to create a sensation of fullness)
  • L-theanine (an aminoacid which promotes release of Serotonin in the body to improve mood and energy levels)

Side Effects:

Like all supplements containing metabolic stimulants, green tea weight loss products pose a certain risk for jitteriness, nervousness, headaches, irritability, and insomnia. More serious side effects include increased heart rate and blood pressure. Also, gastrointestinal side effects such as nausea, upset stomach, cramping and diarrhea may occur.


Availability:

  • Green Tea 300® was previously available online as either an instant drink mix or a 48-hour diet patch. At present, however, we have found it offered only as a diet-patch. The cost is about $25 for a month supply (15 patches), plus shipping and handling fee.


  • Also available are Green Tea Extract Capsules by Vitabase - containing 300 mg standardized green tea leaf extract, the same amount contained in the Green Tea® Instant Drink Mix (the production of which appears to have now been discontinued)


  • Use this link to reach a vendor who is offering a 90-day money back guarantee on the first purchase.

 

Please note: Green Tea Weight Loss Products are for the use of adults only. Pregnant or nursing women should not take these products. Please be aware that any weight loss supplement may be associated with certain side effects and/or health risks. It is prudent to talk to your physician prior to using this or any other weight loss product, especially if you are taking other medication or suffer from a preexisting medical condition.


 

Green Tea Weight Loss
Green Tea Lean Drink Mix

Similar to Green Tea 300®, Green Tea Lean Drink Mix contains high amounts of polyphenols and catechins with antioxidant properties, among which the super-antioxidant EGCG. Thus, it has the same effect of neutralizing and eliminating damaging free radicals which cause aging and disease. Additionally, polyphenols and catechins have significant thermogenic effects, accelerating the metabolism and increasing the burning of fats.

Green Tea Lean Drink Mix does contain caffeine, which is a natural component of green tea extract. Each dose contains approximately 45 mg of caffeine, which is about half the amount in a cup of coffee.


Here's a list of the main ingredients:

  • Polyphenols 300 mg and ECGC 125 mg (which is 15-20 times more than in a cup of regular green tea)
  • Citrimax TM - a substance which works to suppress appetite
  • Advantra-Z - a patented metabolic stimulant believed to have fat-burning properties similar to Ephedrine, but a safer cardiovascular profile
  • L-carnitine - an aminoacid which facilitates the transport and breakdown of fatty acids
  • L-theanine - an aminoacid which promotes release of Serotonin in the body to improve mood and energy levels
  • Chromium - a microelement which regulates blood glucose levels and optimizes energy utilization
  • Vanadyl Sulfate - a compound which lowers blood glucose and may help build lean muscle
  • Bioprene™ - a patented thermogenic compound which increases the utilization of nutrients in the body

Side Effects:

Like all supplements containing metabolic stimulants, green tea weight loss products pose a certain risk for jitteriness, nervousness, headaches, irritability, and insomnia. More serious side effects include increased heart rate and blood pressure. Also, gastrointestinal side effects such as nausea, upset stomach, cramping and diarrhea may occur.


Dosage:

Green Tea Lean Drink Mix comes as packets meant to be mixed with water. The recommendation is to consume 2 drinks per day.


Availability:

  • Green Tea Lean Drink Mix is available online through various retailers. The cost for 1 month supply is about $59, plus shipping and handling fee.


  • Use this link to reach a vendor who is offering a 90-day money back guarantee on the first purchase.
