    Arrow Green Tea Extract


    Is there much difference between:

    1. PrimaForce: Lean Green:
    1 cap Green Tea Extract 500mg
    90% Polyphenols
    70% Catechins
    50% Epigallocatechin-3-Gallate (EGCG)

    2. NOW Foods EGCg
    1 cap Green Tea Extract (Camellia sinensis) (Leaf)
    (Standardized Extract) (Contains 4 mg of Caffeine†)
    [min. 98% Total Polyphenols, 80% Total Catechins, and
    50% EGCg (Epigallocatechin Gallate) (200 mg)] 400 mg
    Decaffeinated Green Tea (Camellia sinensis) (Leaf) 50 mg

    They look pretty similar to me.

    I mainly look for EGCg content

    Thanks, but both PrimaForce and NOW Foods are top notch in their products. Just wondering if there is any real difference between these two types of Green Tea products:

    1. PrimaForce: Lean Green

    2. NOW Foods EGCg

    SNS Green Tea Ultra
    (Standardized for 90% Polyphenols, 70% Catechins, and 50% EGCG)
    500mg (rather than 400mg from NOW)
    75 Servings (rather than 60 from PrimaForce)
    $9.99

    More mg per serving than NOW. Same mg per serving as PrimaForce but only 60 servings rather than 75 from SNS.

    SNS Green Tea Ultra

    --To answer your original question.... There is no real difference. You just have to start looking at the little things to find the most cost effective option.

    You can't go wrong with either one. Both good brands.

    Looks the same. One distributor may argue the "potency" if their products ingredients are better but I really dont buy into it. Clickster just put up a valid argument. Noted.
    By believing passionately in something that still does not exist, we create it. The nonexistent is whatever we have not sufficiently desired.

    I used to take NOW's before I went with SNS and have not looked back.

    purity,potentcy,quality is up there with the best and you will see results.

    egcg is what you should look at.

    Looks like SNS is the way to go, theres more servings.

    After that I'd pick Lean Green.

    I used to have a "Green stack" i called it... Lean Green + Green Bulge. Basic, healthy, worked well.

    I know you mainly care about cost but PP's green tea is the best quality. Organically grown green tea will have less flouride in it than regulary grown GT. Just something to consider.

    I'd like to see an Oolong tea extract. Seems everyone's forgotten about Oolong's awesome fat burning capabilities.

    What's wrong with Nutraplanet's? It is 500mg capsule with 50% EGCG @ 100 caps for $10
