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.
Almost all screens now have zinc oxide or titanium oxide that is ground so fine that it is absorbed by the skin. The manufactures claim that it isn't nano zinc which is absorbed into the blood stream. Rather, they claim, it doesn't pass the capilary wall. First of all, the grinding process isn't that precise, and so some portion, even if the average particle size is too large to pass into the blood stream, will do so. Second of all, I don't want the stuff in my cells either. I finally bought some zinc oxide and mixed it with Shea Butter and made my own. Yes, it leave my skin white. I couldn't care less and I don't want toxic metals in my cells or blood stream. How basic.
This is a very nice product. Leaves the skin extremely natural and clean feeling. The EGCG does work as a powerful antioxident. Still a little pricy for me though. But it is worth it as it is well made and packaged.
