Green Tea & CLA

How much per day should i take to help with weight loss?

For CLA, you are looking at 3-7g of the two active isomers: Cis-9 Trans-11 and Trans-10 Cis-12.

For the green tea, look for an extract with at least 90% polyphenols and 45-50% EGCg. The dose you are looking for is anywhere from 400mg per day to 400-600mg 2-3 times per day.

The higher doses will ensure high blood levels of EGCg and other catechins as the saturable dose is around 400mg.
