Caffeine For An Afternoon Boost?

I know that everyone sees those five hour energy shots in practically every drug store on the planet but to be honest, I don’t really feel comfortable taking something like that.

Green Tea Pills... A better Option?

I stumbled upon this site that was giving green tea extract reviews and some other information on the benefits of green tea pills.  It makes sense, there is a metabolism boost from the supplement that should wake me up and the only ingredients are green tea concentrate.

I started to read about the health benefits of green tea and was like “DUH!!” this is a no brainer.  Regardless of the afternoon energy boost, green tea can offer so many cancer fighting and health improving benefits that I really should be taking it anyway.  Those little pills are like antioxidant bombs.  They can help lower cholesterol through the polyphenols contained in green tea while raising HDL.  Two other benefits are controlling blood sugar levels and helping stop the break down of cartilage that causes arthritis.

I won’t lie, I’ve been kicking myself that I didn’t stumble on to this supplement earlier.   I’ll be taking it daily and tracking my weight loss.  I don’t really care if I lose weight or not while taking the supplement..but it sure would be a nice side effect!  Take a look at this information about green tea.

Do you have any experience with green tea supplements or have you been thinking about trying them?  I would love to hear your thoughts.  The side effects seem to be very minimal and no different than your average caffeine jitters.  Pretty much exactly what you would expect from an energy boost like five hour energy, minus the health benefits.  I am excited to start and when the pills come in from amazon I’ll let you know how I feel!
