Green tea, anyone?
Still one of the best all round supplements/substances there is. I always mean to start making some green tea, since it is so much better taken as a tea but never get around to it. Some people I know make a huge batch of it, turn it into an ice tea so they can store it in the fridge, probably the way to go; might taste better with an added electrolyte mix or with some d-ribose as well.
Thanks for the reminder
Thanks for this thread, I've become a bit obsessed with EGCG, for cancer prevention, treating autoimmune conditions, etc.
It has also been used for weight loss.
Some EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate) notes:
• If you are taking large doses of EGCG, it may be a good idea to take supplemental folic acid, as EGCG can deplete folate.
• The plasma half-life of EGCG is around approximately 4 hours, so this is a supplement you'd need to take 3 or 4 times daily.
• A cheap way to obtain EGCG is by buying it in bulk powder. If you are going to take a lot, then try to find a decaffeinated EGCG powder.
It's good for people to become aware of its properties.
