I believe this is helping with my actinic keratoses, but I haven't been taking it long enough to be sure. Some claim fat burning effects but I haven't seen any of that. Be careful if you are taking blood thinners as it will interact with them. This is a very powerful drug, actually, and one capsule is equivalent to 8 to 10 cups of tea, so don't take more than one capsule per day as recommended. Also, do a google and read about interactions and side effects as there are a number of them, other than the blood thinner interaction. Good if used carefully.
Good but can be better as well!

Green tea is one of the most known and researched products. Most people probably know it for its powerful antioxidant, namely ECCG, which is one of important factors contributing to the longevity of the Japanese people. Does you also know that green tea treat acne, help control blood glucose level and fight diabetes, fight obesity, prevent and eliminate cancer, heart diseases, boost brain function, reduce unhealthy cholesterol, anti-aging, immune booster, pro mote relaxation and many others! All for a low cost and 180 caps! Generally, it is best to take one capsule with each meal (just like the Japanese or Chinese drinking green tea while eating their meal). That will probably be 3 capsules daily and still last for 60 days! One capsule possesses phytonutrients equal to about 2-3 green tea which is quite similar to what the amount that the Japanese drinks on average. This product is also highly decaffeinated so there is no issue with the caffeine. The caps are vegetarian, not too big and easy to swallow. The product does contain magnesium stearate. Whether there is any health effects from magnesium stearate like claimed, it is highly debateable. Check out my page for more reviews!
Value for money

This is the best value for money EGCG green tea product out there, just started a week's worth. The caffeine content is not too high (4mg) per capsule however, individuals sensitive to caffeine might want to refrain from taking one close to bedtime
seems like good stuff

It´s hard to evaluate a product that isn´t suppose to have any noticiable effects. I use it as an antioxidant and like it.

I don´t know very well how to measure the benefits, but it does not make me feel sick and I feel better overall.
Ultimate Cancer Prevention

It's a strong standardized supplement and a major step for cancer prevention. Would require drinking 10 cups a day to get this much EGCg. Everyone should seriously consider.
Manage your weight!

I take one capsule at lunch, and one at dinner. I always seem to be able to maintain my weight if I eat a large meal, and if I eat a normal-sized meal, it seems to make me lose weight. Green tea has so many health benefits, and the weight loss is simply a bonus. Good price for the amount of EGCG you're getting. Will always repurchase!

a very well priced working product. i use this product in combination with Life Extension, Super Omega-3 EPA/DHA to further reduce any oxidation of the fish oil that could happen in the body after taken.
