Green Tea Extract , EGCG

A couple months ago, Debbie left a comment on this post. And while I answered it on that post in the comment section, I wanted to address it here.

Have y'all ever considered giving O Green Tea Extract? I'm considering it. We'll see.
Yes, we have considered giving O green tea extract. I would like to do a little more research on it to be sure. But, I also want to be sure we give him a quality brand of it. So, I need to make sure on that as well.

There is one brand of green tea extract that I think is the best brand from what I have seen. That is Teavigo. From what I have researched on it, it's very pure & standardized.

I like to do a lot of research on any supplement before we start O on it. Just to be sure it is the best choice for him and that it'll benefit him a lot.

So, with all that said, it's motivating me to get on the research bandwagon for EGCG/Green Tea and hopefully start giving it to O. I know the basics of why it is beneficial, just gotta solidify it in my mind and that it is something that would be safe to give.

P.S. This post was supposed to go up a few days ago, but somehow the Google Scheduled Blog Posting blanked out. Oh well.

Thank you for a great answer to my question! I'm pretty sure we are going to start the boys on it and now that we are bringing home the girls this summer, we will start them on it as well. Thanks again!!

Dramatic improvement is definitely an indicator. It can be slow or rapid.

Glad to see you're exploring green tea.

(Roobyroos - a tea from South Africa - might well be good too).

I think the only problem with giving green tea to our kids is that it contains fluoride. Fluoride decreases the function pituitary gland. This is not good if the child has Hypothyroidism. It is very important to find a green tea supplement that is fluoride free.
