Why does Lipotrophin-PM contain green tea?

  1. Why does Lipotrophin-PM contain green tea?


    Hi there,

    Green tea has known stimulant effects from alkaloids including caffeine, theobromine, and theophylline. Why would one want to take it before bed?

    This is the only thing that has stopped me from buying it, everything gives me insomnia.

    Hey Rex!

    The green tea extract utilized is standardized to contain no stimulants. You're getting good health benefits, as well as fat loss properties while sleeping like a baby. Give it a try!

    The caffeine content of the green tea that we use is actually very low- Lipo-PM will help you sleep better, not keep you up

  5. If it has bacopa (I have no clue what is in this stuff - similar to cAmp I'm thinking) - that will likely give you more trouble than anything (at first).

    Some people get a bit of a stim effect from bacopa at first.

  6. It always seems to put me in a good mood

    Bacopa actually has a mild sedative effect

  8. Well - whatever it was in the USP REM formula made it VERY difficult for me to get to sleep the first week or so I was on it. I though it was bacopa.

  9. Green tea in itself is very low in methylxanthine content, which is in a nearly 2:1 with L-Theanine.. Theanine is calming, so even the most caffiene sensitive can take an extract without jitters, not to mention most 100mg green tea extracts only have at most 12mg caffiene..

    A number of people have had problems initially falling asleep with the Powerfull extract which is in REM. Bacopa is an anxiolytic and can be sedative in some people... everyone reacts differently.
