Is There An Appetite-Suppression Oolong Tea Supplement?

Is there an "appetite-suppress" oolong tea supplement? How about weight reducing oolong tea caps or an oolong metabolism product or an oolong appetite tablet?

Writing as a formulator who would have loved to have given you the product if there were, I have to say, as far as I know, the answer is no.

American scientists discovered about 10 years ago that giving male Sprague Dawley rats a very high dosage of epigallocatechin gallates (EGCG's) reduced their consumption of food about 50 per cent. Since that time, no study has proven that oolong, green, or white tea has an effect on appetite in humans.

There is good preliminary clinical evidence, however, that a combination of EGCGs and caffeine can boost resting metabolism up to 30 per cent in women, and increase fat-burning after (but not during) exercise.

So, if you want to limit your appetite, the best natural alternative at the moment seems to be hoodia. Use your green, white, or oolong tea supplement to help you burn calories faster.
