I would aim for about 800-100mg of the power/day. I do 300 mg, 3x a day. You could do 400-500 mg w/ breakfast & dinner if that's easier.

So 1 gram a day? That works, ill just split it up with my 2 shakes per day. @ $10 for 100grams that's a great deal.
Whats the best way to portion it out? Do i need a scale?

Well the most accurate is a scale, but 500mg give or take a couple isn't going to be hard. 1/4 tsp is 700mg, so if you can manage 2/3 of 1/4tsp, that should be about right.

one) anyone know if there are benefits to taking breaks from green tea or its extracts?
two) there is a such thing as fluoridosis -bones harden and brittle from too much fluoride from tea. i was told by a doctor the other day that this will only be a concern if the tea was grown in specifically over-fluoridated soil. anyone know?

I would assume that American's are in enough of a deficiency that this is not something that we need to worry about, especially at the recommended dose.
Not sure. I would be interested in hearing others opinions.

GTE is not as good for you as people think, green tea yes but the extract can be hard on the liver over time... simply put for long term health take breaks from the pills and drink the tea for periods at a time

Will have to boil me some green tea bags and chill them in fridge and sip on them, after my green tea pills(this is GTE right?) run out.

I remember reading about green tea's hepatoxic effects a while back, but I thought I couldnt not find anything showing this to be true in humans? Maybe I'm confusing supps...

Question for Nutraplanet
I got the very first batch of GTE.
it is brown powder in a clear capsule
The new gte is green powder in white capsules
what is the difference?

Smeton I believe it is a different supplier, and colours vary from batch to batch. The bulk powder is from one supplier, and the stuff in the caps is a diff. one I believe. New batch still has 50% EGCG
