The Hidden Health Risks of Green Tea Supplements
Anyone who knows me, knows how much I love green tea. My younger son tells me that "tea" is my favorite food.
And as you may know, there's a good reason for my enthusiasm. The powerful anti-oxidants in green tea have amazing health benefits. Green tea helps you maintain a healthy weight. It promotes cardiovascular health. And it helps you to maintain healthy blood sugar levels.1
But the list doesn't end there. Green tea helps maintain joint mobility, too. And it provides much-needed support for your immune system.
But as good as green tea is, there's something you need to know: not all green tea supplements are good for you. I've gotten a number of reports about the low quality — and even contamination of — green tea products. And since I recommend green tea extract to my patients and subscribers, I felt I had a duty to investigate thoroughly.
What I Found Shocked Me
According to one recent study, more than 40% of green tea supplement labels are inaccurate.2 Many contain far less EGCG — a powerful anti-oxidant unique to the tea plant — than they claim. Others barely contain any EGCG at all.
That's bad enough. But many of the samples tested also had much higher levels of caffeine than claimed—as much as 74% higher!3
Worse, some of these green tea products can actually put your health at risk. In a recent study, every single sample of green tea was found to contain at least 3 different pesticides. And worst of all, another study found that green tea is often contaminated with dangerous toxins like lead and other heavy metals!4,5
If you're like me, you probably find this information disturbing. The very supplement you depend on to protect your health could be destroying it. Worse, you might not even know it was happening…until it was too late.
How You Can Protect Yourself from Dangerous Green Tea Supplements
But how can you make sure you don't end up buying a weak, ineffective (or even dangerous) green tea supplement? The answer is to do your homework. Here's a simple checklist you can use to separate the good from the bad:
Get proof that each pill contains what the manufacturer claims. A good supplement manufacturer will give you a 3rd party lab test proving the purity and potency of their product.
Make sure that the supplement has at least 200mg of EGCG per dose. That's the level used in most studies. If a green tea supplement has anything less, it's a waste of money. And remember, they need to be able to prove their claims with a 3rd party lab test.
Find out where the company gets their raw tea leaves. A quality green tea supplement is made exclusively from 100% natural and pesticide-free tea leaves. If it's not, it may be too low in anti-oxidants. Worse, it could be contaminated with chemical pesticides and fertilizers.
Learn how the company processes their raw tea leaves. Are the leaves hand-picked and allowed to sun-dry in the fields? If not, your green tea supplement is probably harvested by machines. And the tea leaves are probably oven-dried, too. Both of these practices can affect the potency and safety of your green tea supplement.
Find out if they screen for pesticides, mold, and heavy metals at every stage of the manufacturing process. If not, they're putting your health at risk. Make sure your green tea extract is 100% pure before you buy.
Not All Supplement Manufacturers Are the Same
Luckily, you don't have to worry about going through all of that hassle to find a good green tea supplement.
When I learned about the poor quality of most green tea supplements, I called our friends over at Advanced Bionutritionals and asked for their help.
As you may know, Advanced Bionutritionals makes high-grade supplements. You may even use some of their products now. If you do, you know how deeply they're committed to making a top-of-the-line product.
I told them I wanted them to carry a green tea supplement. Garret, the president, was enthusiastic. In fact, he told me that he'd been wanting to carry one for some time. There was just one problem: he couldn't find a reliable source of naturally grown tea leaves.
Luckily, while doing my research, I actually found an excellent source of very high quality green tea. They only use 100% natural growing methods. And they hand-pick all of their leaves. They even let the leaves sun-dry right there in the field.
That's all Garret needed to hear. He contacted my source right away and conducted his due diligence. And within a few weeks, Advanced Bionutritionals was ready to introduce their new Green Tea Extract.
The Secret Method to Producing a High Quality Green Tea Supplement
There's a secret to the way Advanced Bionutritionals makes their Green Tea Extract. It starts in the vast fields of the tea plantations where they get their raw tea.
100% Naturally Grown and Sun-Dried to Perfection

Unlike many other manufacturers, they only use the finest hand-picked green tea leaves. They grow their crops using no pesticides, no insecticides, and no mechanical processing. All their tea is 100% naturally grown and GMO-free.
Once the leaves are picked, they dry right there in the fields. Using the same methods that have endured for thousands of years, the tea farmers let the sun slowly cure the tea.
Sun-drying is the best way to preserve all of green tea's remarkable benefits. This ancient practice naturally preserves all the health benefits of the tea leaves. That means you get the highest-quality green tea extract possible.
Laboratory Tested and Standardized For 100% Purity
After the leaves are dry, they're ready for processing. But first, each batch is laboratory tested to make sure there are no contaminants. Advanced Bionutritionals tests all their raw tea for lead, mercury, bacteria and mold.
Then, the tea leaves are shipped to their specialized processing facility in Germany. There, the raw tea is refined using an extraction process that meets the strict standards of the European Pharmacopeia.
Most companies would stop there. But Advanced Bionutritionals goes one step further. They check each batch to make sure each dose contains at least 300mg EGCG and 500mg of polyphenols. And then they test for contaminants again to ensure 100% purity.
The result: a highly concentrated, all-natural, and 100% pure green tea extract unlike anything else on the market.
And unlike some other supplement makers, Advanced Bionutritionals is willing to prove their claims. In an independent third party lab test, their Green Tea Extract tested 100% pure, with a minimumof 675mg of polyphenols which includes 300mg of EGCG in each pill.
So when you order your risk-free trial of Green Tea Extract, you know it contains exactly what the label claims it does. And that it's guaranteed free of any contaminants-natural or industrial.
It's not the cheapest way to make a high-quality supplement. But it's the only way they're willing to do it. And that's why I'm happy to endorse them.
