as far as i know, green tea extract is not time released, so thats like taking a hit of green tea all at once, which doesnt seem too appealing to me. Personally, id never take the pill becuase i just love green tea too much. green tea does alot more than help you loose weight, but if thats your only goal, i would suggest heading to GNC and buying a more specialized product.

I agree. I drink tea because it tastes nice. Any health benifits are just a bonus. If you're trying to lose weight, there are more effective methods than drinking tea. If you're drinking white tea because it's good for your skin, green tea because it helps you lose weight, black tea because it helps regulate your bowel, then you're missing the point of drinking white green and black tea.
