Due to its popularity, you can now find green tea in many shapes and forms. Try green tea pills if you’re not a fan of drinking green tea but you do want to reap its benefits!
Here, the green tea leaves are crushed into a powder and then pressed into a pill. This makes it easier (easy to take with you, easy to store and so on) and faster for you to consume it. Due to its concentrated form, some people believe a pill to work even better than just drinking green tea.
You need to be aware though that not all pills are of high-quality. Some have more color, smell or taste additives than others and others hardly contain real green tea.
To prevent buying the ‘wrong’ ones, you need to check how much EGCG a green tea tablet contains. This is the main green tea antioxidant making green tea as special as it is. The larger the amount of EGCG in a pill, the better alternative to loose green tea.
EGCG has many functions; boosting your metabolism being one of them. Check out: green tea and metabolism.
Consequently, this antioxidant increases your ability to burn calories nicely fitting a green tea pill into your weight loss program.
Other advantages are that these pills hardly have any side effects making them safe to try! (always consult your doctor if in doubt), they contain less caffeine (for the caffeine sensitive people among us) and it saves you from drinking heaps of green tea if, for example:
- you’re no fan of drinking anything other than liquor, soft drinks, coffee or water.
- you can’t be bothered preparing tea all day when you can get the same effect from taking one little pill.
- you never take the time to get anything to drink at all.
- you never have the time to get anything to drink at all.
Some alleged side effects of the pills, mostly occurring when taken in too large doses, include diarrhea, insomnia, heart palpitations, constipation, nausea, irritability, restlessness and stomach upset.
What’s your experience?
Green tea is a great way to lose weight….or so they say…
But I’m interested to hear what your experience is with a green tea fat burner, pill or supplement…
Maybe you’ve just started drinking a few cups of green tea a day and already noticed some changes? Maybe it didn’t do anything for you at all?
