Applied Nutrition Green Tea
An Aggressive Herbal Blend

Applied Nutrition Green Tea Fat Burner caters for people who want to lose weight quickly. Unfortunately, taking this supplement at high doses can give rise to undesirable side effects.

We first reviewed Applied Nutrition in 2010. At that time, they have two herbal blends, one of which contains chromium. It seems that this chromium blend has now been discontinued.


The recommended dosage is four liquid gel capsules a day.

From the Applied Nutrition website:

  • Green Tea Extract (50% EGCG) 400 milligrams
  • Caffeine 160 milligrams
  • Antioxidant Boost 100 milligrams
  • Vitality Boost 86 milligrams

The Antioxidant Blend contains:

  • Bilberry powder
  • Blueberry extract
  • European elder powder
  • Grape skin extract
  • Pomegranate powder

The Vitality Blend contains:

  • Eleuthero powder
  • Holy basil extract
  • Mate powder
  • Schisandra powder
  • Asian ginseng extract


According to the website, Applied Nutrition Green Tea Fat Burner sells for $24.99 for 90 softgels, although it is possible to get significant discount through the Amazon.

This is what I read in the website:

As an addition to your daily diet and exercise, two liquid soft-gels in the morning and two liquid soft-gels in the afternoon with meals and a full glass of water.

If you follow manufacturer's direction and take four liquid softgels a day, the bottle will last you 22.5 days.

Now consider, what happens if you do that?

For four gels a day, you will be getting 640 milligrams of caffeine and 1,600 milligrams of green tea extract a day.

Now, one cup of coffee contains approximately 100 milligrams of caffeine, so that is equivalent to six-and-a-half cups of coffee. If you are in anyway sensitive to caffeine, you are bound to get your jitters.

One cup of green tea may contain 100 milligrams of catechins, so 1,600 milligrams is equivalent to 16 cups of green tea. At such high doses, green tea extract is toxic and can give rise to many side effects. Click on the link below to learn more:

Green Tea Supplement Side Effects

This is a product that is designed to cater for people who want maximum weight loss in the shortest period of time.

Unfortunately, the formulation is too aggressive for my liking. This is too much caffeine and green tea extract to consume on a daily basis.

This is definitely not a product that you should take for any extended period of time. If you follow the recommended dosage, you are putting yourself at risk from suffering from the many unpleasant side effects of taking green tea supplement..
