    Good Brand of Green Tea Extract

    Look to buy some Green Tea Extract but from what I understand there are different strengths depending on the manufacturer?


    Anyone have a favorite brand of Green Tea extract?(pills)


    thanks

    Doesn't Kent Nutrition sell Green Tea? I think it's pretty potent stuff, too.

    That is what I am using right now, but I won't order from Kent anymore because shipping is too unreliable imo

    I can understand family problems and my prayers are with Kent but you just can't shut down your business randomly and reopen it whenever you feel like.

    I really do hope everything works out for the best w/Kent.

    But shipping is too unreliable. Last time I ordered, shipping was delayed because " he was sick". Again, not to be cruel, but you can't just close on your customers. You need some type of backup plan imo

    Sorry for the rant, it's just that Kent does have the best products, but I can never get any..lol

    yeah I hear you on that. The same things have happened with me, they're just too unreliable. Also, I'm really not into that whole Christian thing. Nothing against those who are, that's cool if it's your thing, but me, I don't go out of my way to support those causes. Too bad, they've got great products and great prices.

    Green tea is loaded with anti-oxidants, it's chock full of vitamin C, increases energy, is said to benefit your lipid profile and help burn fat. Plus, Asians have been drinking it for milleniums, so it must be good.

    their green tea powder is extracted to 50% polyphenols, which i assume is better than most others out there or else they wouldnt advertise it that way.

    $11.99 per 100 grams = 200 servings

    50% is polyphenols is the LOWEST grade extract, it costs about 6$/kg.

    most good extracts are 90-98% polyphenols and 40-50% egcg.

    I think you'd be much better off brewing your own. I got a box of 100 tea bags for just a few bucks. You'll pay almost that much for just one bottle of the Arizona stuff. I know they sell the no-carb versions, but most of the Arizona tea is sweetened with fructose, which is no good.
