Green Tea Supplement

I bought some Green Tea pills today. I am looking to gain the thermogenic effect from it. I bought the GNC brand “GNC herbal plus”. They are 150mg per pill standardized at 120mg polyphenols (80%). Is this the correct brand of Green Tea for my goal? Is the polyphenol a catechin (sp) or something different? If this is a good brand, what dosage is recommended? Thanks for any help.

A very good product is primaforce brand Lean grean $11 discounted.
60 caps:
500 mg
90% polyphenols
70% catechins
50% EGCG

I used to hang out and BS with a girl who worked at GNC…I’m not as comfortable with them as other companies.
