Dangers Of Green Tea Extracts Diet Pills

It's much better to drink your tea than swallow it in a pill! Diane talks about the danger of taking green tea extract pills to be healthy or lose weight.

This is from the story linked here by the BBC about a lovely family man who just wanted to get healthier in mid-age and ended up needing a liver transplant, and possibly a kidney transplant in the future from taking green tea pills he had heard were healthy.

Most people can take tea extracts and not die, but people have died from taking them who have just been trying to be healthier. Others have needed liver transplants, like Mr. McSants.

Always check with your doctor before doing or taking anything you have 'heard' is healthy. Green tea contains EGCG, a catechin component of tea that is a good thing unless taken in huge amounts.

It's so much better to just 'drink your tea'!

Drinking green tea as opposed to taking extract pills: Journal of Molecular Medicine found that individuals with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease who consumed green tea for 12 weeks saw a reduction in fatty liver deposits, a reduction in oxidative stress on the liver and a normalization of liver enzymes.

Here is an updated instance of green tea extract toxicity (not from drinking green tea): https://tinyurl.com/2zee5rz "“For some reason, similar cases of liver injury seem to be unique to taking green tea extract pills or capsules, and not to drinking green tea,” said pharmacist Bryan Kuhn of Banner’s Poison and Drug Information Center. “There’s no standard for what green tea extract contains. You’re talking about a plant product that has dozens, if not hundreds of components that make up the plant, and each company might use different parts for its ‘proprietary blend."

Because of all the questions/input on this subject, and a question about other potentially dangerous supplements (my subject on the channel is limited to tea/tea extracts, etc.), here is a list of supplements Consumer Reports gives. You can Google it because YT won't let me linke it: 15 Supplement Ingredients to Always Avoid

I’ve been given advice by a supplements store, to have 3 capsules of green tea extract ( each capsule is 500mg so total 1500mg) as well as 3 pills of CLA and L-carnatine twice. Also I’m taking statins, BCAA, Whey protein isolate and a multi vitamins. And I’m afraid of how much I’m taking. Any advice please ??
