Health Notes

Green Tea

Green Tea
Common names:
Epigallocatechin Gallate
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

Parts Used & Where Grown

All teas (green, black, and oolong) are derived from the same plant, Camellia sinensis. The difference is in how the plucked leaves are prepared. Green tea, unlike black and oolong tea, is not fermented, so the active constituents remain unaltered in the herb. The leaves of the tea plant are used both as a social and a medicinal beverage.

    Comments about GNC HERBAL PLUS STANDARDIZED GNC Herbal Plus® Standardized Green Tea Complex:

    These capsules definitely have caffeine in them. If I take two in late afternoon, I will be staring at the ceiling at 3 in the morning in bed or playing around with my smartphone. If you're taking it for the thermogenic effects, I think the caffeine in it works well with the ECGC, the effect is quite noticeable. Do drink more water as I feel my body is "overheating" sometimes. A great thermogenic choice if your lifestyle is sedentary and a really good wake-me-up pill, I only take it in the morning after breakfast nowadays.

    Comments about GNC HERBAL PLUS STANDARDIZED GNC Herbal Plus® Standardized Green Tea Complex:

    I love drinking green tea but sometimes it is inconvenient to boil water for a cup of tea. These are great for on the go when you want an extra boost to your day. These green tea pills provide a boost of energy without the jitters like energy drinks. The one downside that I have found is that you need to take more than the recommended serving size (1 pill) to feel the effect of it. This is the case for me at least. However for the price of 200 capsules it is not that hard to take more than one without feeling like you are spending a fortune. Overall I would highly recommend the product for anyone that is looking for a pick-me-up during the day and is looking to get away from caffeine.

      Comments about GNC HERBAL PLUS STANDARDIZED GNC Herbal Plus® Standardized Green Tea Complex:

      I have been using thermogenic products for a while now, however i decided on going a different route this time around taking Green Tea extract (1 gram,2 pills) and L-Carnitine (2 grams,2 pills) in the morning.

      I've been taking this combination since Aug 11, 2013. Since that time, i have lost about 2 pounds. The other surprising thing of note is the appetite suppressing effect. I normally eat breakfast, but this past week I notice that I have not had an appetite.

      I'm aware that this combination will not work for everyone, however this has been my experience. It has been a very pleasant experience thus far.

      Hope this helps.

          This needs to caffeinated on it. I got two hours sleep last night. I'm not an expert on these things and it would help myself and others if GNC or the company would clearly state that it contains caffeine. Thanks.
