Green Tea Fat Burner is a supplement sold by a brand called Applied Nutrition that’s used for weight loss. The product is sold at many large retailers such as CVS, Rite Aid và more.

In this article we’ll nhận xét the ingredients in Green Tea Fat Burner based on published medical research to give our determination of whether these pills are likely khổng lồ be effective and safe for weight loss, or if the product is a waste of money.

Stimulant Ingredient Review

*

Green Tea Fat Burner contains two stimulatory ingredients: green tea extract and caffeine.

Green tea extract may be an effective weight loss ingredient, but its efficacy is irrelevant because we don’t recommend its use due to toxicity concerns. A medical review published in the Journal of Nutrition analyzed data on green tea extract & weight loss.

The study authors found that in all animal studies examined, high-dose green tea extract was toxic & could even cause death. We vị not believe the dose in Green Tea Fat Burner is high enough lớn cause any significant side effects, but its safety is unclear if used over long periods of time.

As the researchers in the linked study state, there isn’t enough human research lớn definitively say what a safe dose of this ingredient is: “These findings suggest that caution should be exercised in the use of green tea-based dietary supplements và that further studies are needed to determine the upper limit of safety for bolus dosing with tea polyphenols as well as the underlying mechanisms of toxicity.”

We consider it illogical khổng lồ take a weight loss ingredient with potential safety concerns when there exist weight loss supplements without any questionable safety data.

Caffeine is also an effective weight loss ingredient. A meta-study from 2019 examined clinical trials on the anti-obesity effects of caffeine, & found that its intake is associated with weight loss in a dose-dependent manner. This means that the more caffeine consumed (within reason), the greater the weight loss: “For every doubling in caffeine intake, the mean reduction in weight, BMI, & fat mass increased 2 Beta-fold.”

We consider the 160 milligram (mg) dose in Green Tea Fat Burner khổng lồ be effective, and should be safe for most healthy adults, however patients with anxiety or high blood pressure should speak with their doctor before using caffeine at this dose (which is equivalent khổng lồ around 1.5 cups of coffee).

Prop Blends Review

*

This supplement has two separate proprietary (“prop”) blends called “Antioxidant Blend” & “Vitality Boost.”

We disagree with the use of prop blends, because they only các mục the total dosage of the blend, rather than the individual dose of each ingredient. We believe this is a consumer safety issue, và also that generally consumers deserve khổng lồ know the dose of each ingredient in a supplement so that they can make an informed purchase decision.

The “Antioxidant Blend” has a total dose of 100 mg, and contains exotic botanical ingredients like bilberry powder & pomegranate powder. While we have no issues with any of the ingredients in this blend, we bởi vì not believe this blend is likely to lớn have any weight loss effect and we want to highlight a comparative example to lớn show how small of a total dose 100 mg is.

According khổng lồ the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), one cup of apples is 100 grams (mg), which equates khổng lồ 100,000 mg. This means that one cup of apples has a total dose 1,000x higher than the entire “Antioxidant Blend” in this product.

Dietary supplement manufacturers often địa chỉ cửa hàng small amounts of exotic ingredients to lớn make the Supplement Facts label look more impressive.

The “Vitality Blend” is even lower-dosed. It has a total dose of 86 mg, which equates to an average dose of 17.2 mg per ingredient. This equals a per-ingredient dose which is 1 / 5,814 the dose of one apple.

We vày not believe that either of these prop blends is likely lớn be effective for weight loss, nor does Applied Nutrition cite any research on their sản phẩm page (which we don’t want to link to because we bởi vì not tư vấn their business) suggesting that any of these ingredients are effective for weight loss.

Inactive Ingredients Review

*

Green Tea Fat Burner contains the inactive ingredient titanium dioxide which we recommend avoiding. This ingredient is banned in the European Union (E.U.) for use as a food additive over toxicity concerns. The E.U. Has much better consumer protections in our opinion than the U.S., and we figure it’s logical to avoid this ingredient given that it has no nutritional value.

We also want to cảnh báo that we had to source the inactive ingredient danh sách on a third-party retailer’s trang web (Vitacost), because at the time of writing this article, Applied Nutrition does not publish the inactive ingredients on their hàng hóa page. 

We find this khổng lồ be entirely unacceptable for consumer safety. Manufacturers are required khổng lồ publish both active & inactive ingredients on their Supplement Facts label. If a consumer is allergic lớn an ingredient, they could die from consuming a supplement which failed to menu the ingredient.

We strongly urge Applied Nutrition khổng lồ update the Supplement Facts label on their site, and we consider this a red flag as to lớn the unique control of the brand.

Our Weight Loss Supplement Recommendations

*

There are several dietary supplements we consider safe & effective for promoting weight loss. The first is dietary fiber, which is actually a food product rather than a supplement, but it has impressive research backing.

An extensive medical đánh giá published in The Journal of Nutrition analyzed data from 345 patients & found that fiber intake directly predicts weight loss. The reason fiber may be so successful for weight loss is because it fills up the stomach with zero-calorie, indigestible plant matter. This makes individuals feel full faster, và end up consuming fewer calories overall.

The reason it"s much easier to lớn eat 2,000 calories of a highly processed meal like pizza rather than 2,000 calories of rice and beans is because the latter meal is high in fiber.

We recommend SuperGut Fiber phối for supplemental dietary fiber. It contains a clean và effective formulation: a blend of three different types of dietary fiber & zero additive ingredients. Interested consumers can buy SuperGut fiber at this link.

Medium-chain triglyceride (MCT) oil is another dietary supplement with impressive early research backing for weight loss. 

MCT oil is quickly absorbed by the body toàn thân and increases metabolic rate, which causes fat loss. A meta-study on MCT oil & weight loss analyzed data from 13 individual clinical trials on the topic. The average trial duration was 10 weeks, và the researchers documented an average weight loss of 0.51 kilograms (kg), which equates khổng lồ 1.12 pounds (lbs). This equates lớn a potential annualized weight loss of 5.84 pounds with a simple dietary modification.

We recommend Bulletproof MCT Oil as our vị trí cao nhất MCT oil product, because it contains zero questionable additive ingredients. The only ingredient is MCT oil derived from coconuts. Interested consumers can buy Bulletproof MCT Oil at this link.
