Nutrition, Supplements, and Health

“As long as I cut my calories, does it otherwise matter WHAT I eat?” “Do I need vitamins and minerals?” “Do nutritional supplements really work?” “Is there a nutritional option to my prescription medications?” “If I simply take a ‘one a day’ multivitamin, isn’t that enough?” “My friends are getting cancer and heart disease, can I improve my chances with nutrition?” These are examples of the types of questions I address with patients every day.

Green Tea and Fat Burning

By Dr. Rick Tague

Green Tea: The Ultimate Fat Burning Supplement?

Overweight individuals typically have a “sluggish” metabolism that is far more likely to store fat than burn it.  Green tea enhances “fat burning” by 17-40%.  And there are so many other benefits to Green Tea:

  • High EGCG content of 200 mg per capsule far exceeds most green tea supplements.
  • Improve cholesterol and triglycerides.
  • Enhances appetite suppressant medications effects on metabolism.
  • Enhance weight loss by up to 1/2 to 3/4 lbs per week while dieting.
