    NOW green tea EGCG + ON amino energy: too much green tea?


    Hey guys, just wondering if this is too much green tea in a day

    Suggested Use
    As a dietary supplement, take 1 Vcap daily with a meal. Do not take this product on an empty stomach. Consider taking this product in combination with NOW AHCC, Immune Renew and Mangoni.

    Supplement Facts

    Supplement Facts
    Serving Size: 1 Vcap
    Amount Per Serving%DV
    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*
    *Daily Value not established
    † Naturally occurring caffeine

    And ON amino energy:
    30 ServingsBlue Raspberry
    Serving SizeTwoScoops(9g)
    Servings Per Container30
    Amount Per Serving% Daily Value
    Calories10
    Total Carbohydrate2g1%*
    Amino Blend5g†
    Micronized Taurine, Micronized L-Glutamine, Micronized L-Arginine, Micronized L-Leucine, CarnoSyn® Beta-Alanine, Micronized Citrulline, Micronized L-Isoleucine, Micronized L-Valine, Micronized L-Tyrosine, Micronized L-Histidine, Micronized L-Lysine, Micronized L-Phenylalanine, Micronized L-Threonine, Micronized L-Methionine
    Energy Blend160mg†
    Caffeine (From Green Tea)‡, Green Tea Extract (Camellia Sinensis)(Leaf)(Standardized For EGCG), Green Coffee Extract
    * Percent Daily Values are based on a 2,000 calorie diet.
    † Daily Value not established

    And I only have just over one scoop of amino energy in the morning.

    It's really hard to tell how much actual green tea is in ON amino energy but would these two products be a overkill?

    One green tea cap is definitely enough but would amino energy be enough?

    It's actually too little green tea. Ideally, you want around 750mg EGCG daily

    "Do not exceed recommended dose"
