Hi, has anyone had an experience using green tea? I have heard that it boosts your energy level, which i really need and also that it is good for your metabolism and also that it has antioxidants that are good for you in many ways. I just started trying green tea extract pills. Has anyone else here used green tea and if so did it work for you and in what way? I would love to know your opinion of its worth!

I have been drinking green tea for almost 3 weeks now and I feel a lot better when I drink it. I was never a tea drinker, never liked it. But since I have been drinking it lately I'm starting to like it. I can tell the differance when I don't drink it for a couple days. I don't feel as good. So their is something to drinking green tea. I don't know about the energy level. I have tried a lot of caffine things to help boost my energy. Nothing seems to work that well for me. But thats me. I have heard of people that can drink one can of pop and are wired out with energy. But since I have been drinking green tea I quess I do feel better energy wise. I feel better period.

thanks for your reponse! i know what you mean about things effecting people differently! i wish i was one of those people that could get such an energy boost from a can of pop of a cup of coffee , but no such luck. but i am hoping that the tea makes a difference in my health and metabolism.

You can't always see if something is working. I believe that what you say about green tea is true.

I drink green tea to help with my digestion. It helps me get rid of the heavy feeling I get after every meal.
