10 Best Green Tea Diet Pills & Supplements
10 Best Green Tea Diet Pills
Because of the significant amount of clinical data validating its ability to elevate the metabolism and possibly inhibit carbohydrate metabolism, green tea is finding its way into more and more weight loss products and so, green tea diet pills really are all the rage.
Despite the positive clinical data, it’s important to keep green tea’s weight loss benefits in perspective. See the article “How Much Weight Can I Lose With Green Tea” for more information on this.
Science and Study Updates
Since our initial articles, more recent studies published on green tea for weight loss are less positive, suggesting green tea’s benefits are significantly less important than once thought.
For instance, this study concluded…
“Green tea preparations appear to induce a small, statistically non-significant weight loss in overweight or obese adults.”
This one was even worse…
“Green tea or gree tea extracts intake or its extracts exerts no statistically significant effect on the weight of overweight or obese adults.”
To muddy the waters even more, some studies still suggest a significant benefit. A study published in the Journal of Clinical Nutrition in 2016 concluded…
12 weeks of treatment with high-dose green tea extract resulted in significant weight loss, reduced waist circumference, and a consistent decrease in total cholesterol and LDL plasma levels without any side effects or adverse effects in women with central obesity.
Why am I telling you this?
Well, simply so that you are fully aware that not everyone is in agreement on its benefits.
Here’s a tip: When evaluating such products on your own, always check to see that the green tea element of the product’s formula is standardized for its most critical component; the catechin EGCG. It may also be standardized for caffeine. If it is not, then caffeine should also be included in the product (the optimal dosage, as suggested by this clinical study, is 50 mg of caffeine combined with 90 mg EGCG taken three times per day).
Green Tea Dangers and Warnings
While there’s no arguing the health benefits of drinking high quality green tea, there appear to be risks associated with the standardized extracts included in so many over the counter diet pills. For instance, a recent study looked at the risk of liver injury associated with the green tea extract found in SlimQuick products.
The study aimed to describe the course and outcome of six patients who developed liver injury attributed to the use of SlimQuick.
Caffeine and EGCG
Scientists believe caffeine and EGCG are the two most important elements of green tea as it pertains to weight loss. You want to see both included in whatever product you choose.
