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.

I am very pleased with the actual EGCG quauntity (200 mg) listed in the product. This is very high for the price, i.e. I have several science degrees and the recent research on EGCG shows that it can reverse Alzheimner's Disease by de-phosphorylating the 201st serine residue on the 221 amino-acid residue Tau protein. Aside from being an anti-oxidant with a horrible taste, this indispensibility shows how a good product can be used with a controlled diet and your doctor's advice to make you truly healthier and not just happier either.
Energizing, anti-cancer, slimming, increases glucose uptake in the muscle

It is also a decarboxylation inhibitor, can be used instead of "carbidopa" and this means it can enhance the effect of Mucuna Pruriens and 5-HTP. Also good to take before a high carb meal, because it makes the calories go to the muscle instead of to the fat (this is called a partitioning effect).

Provides the antioxidents and benefits of Green Tea w/o caffienne or having to drink gallons of it. This brand provides good energy without the need to use caffienne. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a green tea extract, especially when they do not want the extra added jitters from caffienne.
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!
Dem Anti-oxidants tho

This with 5-HTP is a must!

Wonderful in having the chemicals needed to burn weight. I take them right before I sleep at night, with a LOT of water (important - you need to basically wash the fat out of your body, and without enough water it can't go anywhere), and three high potency Omega 3 pills. That combination, Omega 3 and Green Tea (or, more accurately, the combination of the chemicals they contain that give benefits) is very powerful, and gives great results. I also take them in the day sometimes, with my meals.
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
