Re: Green tea and increase in liver fat??
Taking too many capsules IS a bad idea, mega overload on concentrated green tea, and It really doesnt suprise me... Heck people have died from drinking an overdose of water, messes up the bodies electrolites I think. Too much of anything is not usually good for you!
Most of the stuff I have read says that 5 or more cups of green tea is about at the top of the benifit you can get from drinking the stuff....I wonder if there is any reasearch on where the cut off point is before it begins to be toxify your body....I would imagine that it would be much more than anyone would ever consider drinking in one day....You gotta remember that the concentrated extract in capsule form is probably equal to like 5 cup of green tea per capsule or something and those people are probably taking mega amounts of the capsules, but whos gonna drink 25 cups of green tea everyday. Many folk in China drink 5+ cups a day and they seem to outlive most Westerners. Sooo, Id guess that more than around 7 to 10 cups a day is probably a little much, but even at that point its probably fine.
