    I got some today, what kind of "schedule" should I follow in taking these? The capsules are 315mg.

    I also got some caffeine tablets.

    With this data in mind, we could safely say, for example, that taking an extract containing 400 mg EGCG once daily would be considerably more effective than 200 mg twice daily. Increasing this amount to 600 mg may or may not have a significant effect, depending on the study we look at. Either way, a minimum of 400 mg EGCG should be taken at a time to overcome saturation. An ideal dosing schedule would be 400 mg 2-3 times daily, while a more economical (but still very effective) one would be 400 mg once daily (preferably in the pre-workout period).

    FYI, ECGC may inhibit fat absorption so I wouldnt take it w/ your fish oils or seasmine.
