    Is there any reason why I should pay 8.50 for 60 tabs of LeanGreen as opposed to 5.99 for 100 caps of NOW Foods green tea extract?

    Is there anything better about Lean Green? The only thing I can really see is that it has 500mg of green tea extract in it, as opposed to NOW's only having 400.

    :dunno:

    yes

    Lean Green = 70% catechins, 90% polyphenols
    NOW = 40% catechins, 50% polyphenols

    Is the difference in price worth buying the capper and gels ? Im guessin not since thats the way it usually works but I could be wrong. O and btw thx for always giving such quick solid responses to my ?'s.

    yeah that's good stuff...400mg of green tea extract (98% polyphenols, 80% catechins, 50% EGCG)

    BN doesn't carry it though

    That's one thing I've noticed as well since taking the EGCg... my gf and her sister have been sick 2-3 times this winter, and I've been fine except for my allergies.

    so what's the point of wasting the money on this if it's just a more potent green tea? Just take more green tea pills.

    I've been taking lean green tea and haven't been sick once this flu/cold season :noes:

    i ALWAYS get a cold at least. and they last two weeks, but i haven't gotten one.

    it could be that i use the hand sanitizer like crazy, or it could be a number of other things. But it is very weird that i haven't gotten sick this season.
