In brief: I can't speak for

"arizona" brand tea.
Some people use green tea extract to assist with weight loss. However, i would not anticipate any significant change unless this is paired with exercise ; a healthy nutrition plan. A study by maastricht university (holland) noted green tea has catechins ; caffeine w inhibition of o-methyl- transferase ; phosphodiesterase which effects thermogenesis ; fat oxidation. The linus.
