Green Tea Fat Burning Pills from Applied Nutrition

Applied Nutrition's Green Tea Fat Burner

Magic Green Pills? Hardly…

Green tea has a noble history dating back 4,000 years, and has been consumed to help everything from healing wounds to promoting digestion. In the 20th Century, scientists discovered green tea contains a bunch of useful compounds, including EGCG and L-Theanine, which boost metabolism and improve mental focus.
It would make sense then, you would think, to concentrate this tea and turn it into a pill, allowing for easier consumption and higher concentrations. But this idea usually fails, and the Green Tea Fat Burner from Applied Nutrition is no exception.
Had Applied Nutrition simply extracted green tea and placed it into a tiny pill, I probably would have had no issues; but they added a “Vitality Boost” to their Fat Burner formula, and this is where everything falls apart for me.
I seem to be sensitive to yerba mate, a natural herbal stimulant found in this “Vitality Boost,” and was plagued with migraines and unshakable jitteriness whenever I took the pills. I’ve had similar experiences in the past with yerba mate, and was hoping the amount found in this formula would be small enough to go unnoticed in my body. I was wrong, and my constant nausea made it challenging to take the pills regularly.
Nausea is an excellent appetite suppressant, but I’d rather spend extra time in the gym or change my diet plan.


I prefer the formula used in Hydroxycut Hardcore Elite. It avoids yerba mate and had all the same fat burning effects. I certainly recommend Hydroxycut over these green tea pills.
Of course, you can also just drink a boat load of greet tea. The L-Theanine and EGCG found in tea bags is completely natural, low in calories, and will absolutely work as long as you drink enough (3 or more cups per day). Drinking green tea is an excellent option if you like tea.
Regardless of what you choose, please remember that these options should be taken as part of a solid training program that includes proper physical exercise and food planning.
