GreenTea Extract leads to significant weight loss within 3months
Fifty obese subjects were assigned to a coated Green Tea Extract tablet plus a low calorie diet while 50 other obese subjects followed the same low calorie diet only. After 90 days those on the green Tea extract plus low calorie diet lost 30.8 pounds while those on diet alone lost 11 pounds. Besides the weight the following improved in both groups; LDL- and total cholesterol, triglycerides, insulin, and cortisol, while protective HDL-cholesterol went up. Taking into consideration the high safety profile of the product and the total absence of adverse effects observed during and after the trial, Green Tea Extract appears to be a safe and effective tool for weight loss. The study is published in the June 2009 issue of the journal Alternative Medicine Review.
