What is Green Tea?
Green Tea has been popular in Eastern cultures, particularly China, Japan, and India since ancient times for its broad spectrum of health benefits. Green Tea has become extremely popular in recent times because of its high content of antioxidants and its ability to support immune health, detoxify the liver, and support healthy weight loss and BMI by boosting metabolism.
What are the active ingredients in Green Tea Gold™?
Green Tea is rich in Polyphenols, which are antioxidant molecules, and catechins, the most notable of which is Epigallocatechin Gallate or EGCG. Together, these beneficial compounds confer immuno-protectant, antioxidant, and weight-loss benefits.
Does Green Tea Gold™ contain anything other than the active ingredient?
In addition to the active ingredient, each vegetarian capsule of the Green Tea Gold™ product contains a small amount of non-GMO, gluten-free Rice Concentrate. Because the nature of herbal extracts can vary from batch to batch in terms of consistency, moisture (or stickiness), and particle size, Rice Flour is sometimes added during manufacturing to ensure product integrity without compromising product safety or effectiveness.
What are some purity concerns with Green Tea?
Because Green Tea extracts are decaffeinated with water that may contain high levels of Fluoride, it is important to test the finished product to ensure that is low in Fluoride levels. The Green Tea plant is also notorious for absorbing aluminum from the soil, which makes testing for aluminum content extremely important as well.
Is Green Tea Gold™ free of allergens and GMOs?
Green Tea Gold™ is verified free of wheat, peanut, soy, shellfish, egg, and milk by an independent, third-party lab. It is also verified free of GMOs by the Non-GMO Project™.
Is Green Tea Gold™ suitable for Vegans / Vegetarians?
Green Tea Gold™ does not contain any animal-derived ingredients and is, therefore, suitable for both vegans and vegetarians.
How long do I have to take Green Tea Gold™ before I see any benefits?
Unlike OTC and prescription drugs that provide instant, temporary, symptomatic relief, herbal supplements provide progressive, long-term benefits by strengthening and supporting the body's natural defenses. Most herbal supplements, including Green Tea Gold™, need to be taken for at least 6 to 8 weeks before the benefits of taking the supplement can be experienced. Please be advised that nutritional supplements work best when they are taken as part of a health maintenance program that includes a sensible diet rich in whole grains, fruits, and vegetables, a moderate exercise program, and the necessary lifestyle changes to support wellness. If you have any other questions please consult your medical provider.
Is Green Tea suitable for individuals with a medical condition?
Individuals with a known or suspected medical condition should always talk to a licensed medical professional before beginning any form of supplementation. It is never advisable to self-diagnose or self-treat a medical condition.
What are the side effects and/or contraindications, if any, associated with Green Tea?
Green Tea does not have any known side effects or interactions and is generally well-tolerated by most individuals. However, it is always recommended to consult your healthcare provider before taking any supplements if you are pregnant, lactating, taking any OTC or prescription medications for a health condition, and/or have any other questions to ask.
Is Green Tea safe for long-term use?
Green Tea should be safe for both short-term and long-term use when used as directed and under the guidance of a healthcare provider.
