    Bulk Green Tea Extract dosage?


    Hi Guys,

    I just received my Nutraplanet Bulk GTE.
    my question is, how many mg do I get in 1/4 tsp? I can't find the dosage in the label....how many mg do I need to take/day?


    thanks

    If your dose is 700mg EGCG per serving, I would suggest to take it once daily.

    GREEN TEA containins powerful polyphenol antioxidants. The most effective are catechins (especially EGCG), believed to be over 200 times more powerful than Vit. E at inhibiting lipid peroxidation. Studies show lower arthritis, cancer, and heart disease rates with regular use of 4 cups or more per day.

    It improves hormone balance by inhibiting both 5-alpha reductase and aromatase. Catechins have been shown to prevent the breakdown of cartilage and lower COX-2.

    Green tea causes thermogenic fat loss, controls blood sugar, and inhibits the digestion of starch. Take with meals to help neutralize dietary carcinogens such as nitrosamines. Green tea is the most cost-effective of all the plant antioxidants.

    95% Polyphenols; 50% EGCG

    Why is that? Do you take this empty stomach, or w/ a meal?
