TITLE: Bone Char Used to make sugar white is Halal

Bone Char is only made from cattle bonnes without Islamic slaughtering but it is Halal due to Tabdeele Mahiya. There is no report that it is made from pig bones because pork bones are not suitable for bone char.

Bone Char meet the sharia rules of Tabdeele Mahiya which required complete physical change and change of original name. Bone Char is used for over 100 years in Muslims countries no ulema claimed that it is not Halal.

So white sugar in which bone char or mineral is used during its processing is Halal.

TITLE: Baby Foods at Wal-Mart

MCG just updated Halal or Not Halal baby foods available at Wal-Mart. Please write baby food under search then click "Food Product By Category" then click "Show only Halal" then search it. You see a list of 101 Halal Baby Foods needed for your baby.

MCG believes Muslims always feed their babies with only Halal foods containing no animal derived ingredients and no alcohol used as hidden ingredient in flavor or no alcohol used during processing of food ingredients such as "Nucleotide.

Please beware that some Halal certifying organizations ignore the use of alcohol during processing of the ingredients and certified them as Halal based on artificial alcohol level of 0.5% or less created by themselves. This artificial alcohol level Muslims cannot find in any Hadith. MCG follows this Hadith all the time:

A little bit of intoxicant/Alcohol is haram too:

Narrated by Aisha Siddiqui, Ummul Muminin RA:

I heard the Apostle of Allah (peace be upon him) say: Every intoxicant is forbidden; if a faraq of anything causes intoxication, a handful of it is forbidden. ( Sunan Abu-Dawud, Book 26:Drinks (Kitab Al-Ashribah)

Narrated Umm Salamah RA, Ummul Muminin RA:

The Apostle of Allah (peace be upon him) forbade every intoxicant and everything which produces languidness. (Sunan Abu-Dawud, Book 28:Drinks (Kitab Al-Ashribah) 3678 )

TITLE: Time Magazine Article on Halal Meat

Is Halal Meat Healthier than Conventional Meat

July 28, 2015 Halal refers to Muslim criteria for how food is raised slaughtered and prepared. But do the requirements make the food healthier

Correction appended, July 30

Denmark announced last year it would ban Halal and Kosher slaughtering practices. Halal meat is reared—and slaughtered—differently from conventional meat. But is it healthier

Like kosher food, Halal food is guided by religious criteria that govern everything from how the animals destined to be eaten are fed and raised, to how they are slaughtered and prepared for consumption.

According to the Muslims in Dietetics and Nutrition, a member group of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, Halal food can never contain pork or pork products (that includes gelatin and shortenings), or any alcohol. Rasheed Ahmed, founder and president of the Muslim Consumer Group (MCG), which both certifies Halal food and educates Muslims about different foods’ Halal status, says that to be truly Halal, how the animals are raised is taken into account. Animals must be fed vegetarian diets, which means that many chickens and cows raised on U.S. farms don’t qualify (some feed contains animal byproducts). Halal animals also can’t be treated with antibiotics or growth hormones, since the hormones may contain pork-based ingredients.

Halal animals must be slaughtered by a Muslim, who says a blessing, and by hand, not by machine (which is the way many chickens in the U.S. are killed. Once killed, the animal’s blood must drain completely, since Muslims who eat Halal do not consume the fresh blood of animals.

Ahmed admits that his criteria for certification are a bit stricter than others; for example, MCG won’t certify fish if it’s farm-raised, since it’s not clear whether they fish was fed animal byproducts. Only wild-caught fish are Halal certified by MCG standards.

While some people believe that these criteria make Halal food healthier, Carol O’Neil, professor of nutrition and food sciences at Louisiana State University Agricultural Center says that there simply aren’t studies showing that to be true. The U.S. Department of Agriculture, which serves as the reference for nutritional content of food, does not separate out Halal meat (or kosher meat, for that matter) from other meats for its nutritional information.

“It’s difficult to know if there are any kind of nutritional differences,” says O’Neil. “There are certainly no studies done looking at people who consume Halal meat to see if their cholesterol levels are different, or anything like that. We just don’t know.”

O’Neil does note, however, that Halal practices may be more humane for the animal, and therefore that may make a difference for some people. “Our religion does not allow us to put any pressure on the animals,” says Ahmed. “So we treat them as humanely as possible.”

Correction : The original version of this article misstated when the ban was enacted. It was in February of 2014.

TITLE: The Halal Status of Cocoa Beans, Cocoa Butter, Chocolate Liquor and Chocolate

Many Muslims are confuse about the Halal status chocholate made from cocoa beans and they read on internet that the cocoa beans go through fermentation before processing. This news article will explain in technical term. The cocoa beans is obatined from pod (a fruit of cocoa tree) is filled with pulp and seeds. Pulp has no use in chocolate manuafcturing only cocoa beans is the source of chocolate. Here the process after harvesting:

" Fermentation can be carried out in a variety of ways, but all methods depend on removing the beans from the pods and heaping them together to allow micro-organisms to develop and initiate the fermentation of the pulp surrounding the beans. Fermentation can be carried out in a variety of ways, but all methods depend on removing the beans from the pods and heaping them together to allow micro-organisms to develop and initiate the fermentation of the pulp surrounding the beans. In plantations or fermentaries, fermentation is normally carried out in large wooden boxes that typically hold 1 to 2 tonnes of beans. The boxes must have provision for the liquefied pulp to drain away and for entry of air. The fermentation process begins with the growth of micro-organisms. In particular, yeasts grow on the pulp surrounding the beans. The yeasts convert the sugars in the pulp surrounding the beans to ethanol. Bacteria then start to oxidise the ethanol to acetic acid and then to carbon dioxide and water, producing more heat and raising the temperature. The pulp starts to break down and drain away during the second day. Lactic acid, which converts the alcohol to lactic acid in anaerobic conditions, is produced but, as the acetic acid more actively oxidises the alcohol to acetic acid. The acetic acid and high temperatures kill the cocoa bean by the second day. The death of the bean causes cell walls to break down and previously segregated substances to mix. This allows complex chemical changes to take place in the bean such as enzyme activity, oxidation and the breakdown of proteins into amino acids. These chemical reactions cause the chocolate flavour and colour to develop. The length of fermentation varies depending on the bean type, Forastero beans require about 5 days and Criollo beans 2-3 days. Following fermentation the beans are dried. The oxidation reactions begun through fermentation continue during drying (from International Cocoa Organization)."

First sugar of the pulp not beans is converted to ethanol which then converted to acetic acid and water, this is the same way the vinegar is made from alcohol this process is calkled Tabdeele Mahiya in Islamic Sharia. The strong cell wall of cocoa beans protect inside of the beans from alcohol leaching into it. Then after all ethanol or alcohol converted to acetic acid and water then beans start to repture and biochemical changes occur for cocoa which has effect on the flavor chocolate the end product.

I hope you understand the biochemistry of cocoa beans. The articles on internet makes many Muslims confused about the Halal status of cocoa beans, cocoa butter and chocolate. This is a natural process a gift from Allah to all Muslims to eat Halal food only.

The bottom line is that fermentation occur on pulp surrounding the beans not in beans itself. So cocoa beans, Cocoa butter, Chcolate Liquor and chocolate made from cocoa beans are Halal.

Isopropyl alcohol (isopropanol, 2-propanol, propan-2-ol) is commonly used as a disinfectant, antifreeze, and solvent, and typically comprises 70 percent of "rubbing alcohol." People ingest isopropyl alcohol to become intoxicated (ie, ethanol substitute) or to harm themselves. When ingested, isopropyl alcohol functions primarily as a central nervous system (CNS) inebriant and depressant, and its toxicity and treatment resemble that of ethanol.

Isopropyl Alcohol Manufacturing

Isopropyl alcohol is made from fossil fuels that are processed through a hydration process where the propene derived from the fossil fuel is combined with water causing a chemical reaction. Distillation then occurs to process out any byproducts to form pure isopropyl alcohol. This can then be mixed back with a percent of distilled water or sold in pure form. It can also be used as ingredient in healthcare or cleaning products at this point.

What is the Difference Between Ethyl Alcohol and Isopropyl Alcohol

Although both are forms of alcohol, ethyl alcohol and Isopropyl alcohol have more differences than similarities. The differences begin at the sources they are made from. Ethel alcohol is most commonly derived from corn and isopropyl alcohol is derived from propene which can come from fossil fuels such as coal, petroleum or natural gas. Ethyl alcohol is subject to an excise tax by the federal government according to its percent proof. Isopropyl alcohol is only subject to sales tax.

MCG 's ulema Mufti Mohammed Hafeezur Rehman Khan consider Isopropyl alcohol as intoxicant and Haram if use in food product or any non food product.

Use of Isopropyl Alcohol during the processing of certain Ingredients and taken out completely is Halal

Our Mufti Mohammed Hafeezur Rehman Khan said that if Isopropyl Alcohol is used during the processing of Carrageenan, Pectin, Xanthan Gum and other ingredients and taken out completely then those ingredients are consider Halal.

Following are the responses from different food companies about use of use of Isopropyl alcohol:

I am pleased to tell you that we do not use ethanol, but only isopropanol in the process of our refined carrageenan and pectin products. This is a processing aid, that is completely removed at the end

of the process and therefore their will be NO traces in the final product.

Director R&D and Technical Customer Service

Isopropyl alcohol is used for pectin. The carrageenan is produced using isopropyl as well as KCL depending on the type of carrageenan or neither.

Andros Foods USA, Inc.

Sorry for the delay in my response but I was waiting to received confirmation from our headquarters in France. This is what I received:

We confirm that no alcohol is used in the manufacturing of the Pectin used in Bonne Maman.

I hope you can feel confident in purchasing and enjoying Bonne Maman.

Andros Foods USA, Inc.

Thank you for your question, the Pectin we distribute uses Isopropyl Alcohol during the processing. If you have any other questions please let me know.

TITLE: Tabasco Sauces are Halal

MCG investigated the Tabasco brand sauce processing method with Mc Ilhenny company. The company told MCG that there is no cross contamination of their sauces with oak barrel previously used for whisky production and there is no alcohol production during three years of aging of Tabasco brand Sauces.

The aging of Tabasco barnd Sauce is similar to production of pickles, Achar (Indian or Pakistani pickles) and Sauerkraut where there is no alcohol produced.

Here is how Mc Ilhenny company treat the oak barrel used for aging of their sauces from Wikipedia:

Peppers are ground into a mash on the day of harvest and placed along with salt in white oak barrels (aging barrels) previously used for Jack Daniel's Tennessee Whisky.

To prepare the barrel, the inside of the barrel is de-charred (top layer of wood is removed), torched and cleaned, to minimize the presence of any residual whiskey. The barrels are then used in warehouses on Avery Island for aging the mash.

After aging for up to three years, the mash is strained to remove skins and seeds. The resulting liquid is mixed with vinegar, stirred occasionally for a month, and then bottled as finished sauce.

Tabasco brand Sauces are Halal certified by Malaysia Government's JAKIM a Halal certifying organization after thorough inspection of their plants and process according to the Company.

MCG consider Tabasco Sauces are Halal

Purium Review - 16 Things You Need to Know

I did two things this week: I obsessed with every aspect of Purium, then I wrote this review. Our research team turned over every stone to find information on ingredients, side effects, and clinical research. Then we examined hundreds of user comments. We summarized and refined to give you the details you need.

Purium can be purchased through Amazon.

What is Purium?

To start off, Purium is a company that promotes holistic health through offering a variety of naturopathy products relevant to all stages of life. Their products are supposed to meet basic bodily needs that most people in our culture simply do not get anywhere else. They claim to provide quality products with nutrients, vitamins and minerals that the body needs so customers can live a happier, healthier life.

By taking fresh, non-GMO organic foods and turning almost all of it into a powder with a two-year shelf life, Purium aims to deliver a product that can not only transform our bodies but change the way we think about diet products altogether.

Purium offers a line of health and wellness products from weight-loss to detoxification and performance – even natural supplements for children.

David Sandoval Profile

From the Purium website:

“Twenty-four years ago, David Sandoval was like many of us, working a sedentary job, eating a conventional diet and watching his family members suffer from cancer, diabetes and obesity among other illnesses. He knew he needed a lifestyle change and set out on a relentless mission to find the answers he needed to turn his life around.

“After transforming his body and his inset, David is healthier and younger today than he was twenty-four years ago and he has the biological markers to prove it! David Sandoval is now a world-renowned expert and in-demand lecturer and radio talk show host, as well as an entrepreneur, nutritionist, activist, personality, author, and authority on whole food nutrition and disease prevention. He is the Chief Science Officer for Purium Health Products.

“David has dedicated almost two decades of his life to seeking out and gaining access to sources of rare and diverse superfoods, which are available only through diligent research and painstaking selection. He has composed dozens of these into phyto-nutrient rich formulas that he sells through his company Purium Health Products. Purium’s products are unprecedented in their potency and purity, as well as in the complexity of their contribution to the body’s physiological well-being.”

Purium Ingredients

Purium makes some bold statements regarding quality, so we had to dive in and share some ingredients from their most popular products. Additionally, we examined each ingredient in an attempt to provide some scientific facts about what they do and the health benefits they provide.

Purium Power Shake Ingredients

  • Rice bran solubles
  • Oats
  • Spirulina
  • Carrot juice powder
  • Alfalfa leaf juice powder
  • Oat grass juice powder

Purium Power Shake ingredients are combined with the intentions of balancing and maintaining appropriate cholesterol levels – similarly regulating blood sugar levels, and improving digestive health with slow-burning carbs and very digestible proteins.

Studies have shown that rice bran is powerful towards lowering high cholesterol levels. In particular, a Mayo Clinic study found that the combination of various whole grain products, including the rice bran, oats, wheatgrass, millet, amaranth, buckwheat, and quinoa found in this Purium shake can drastically improve cholesterol numbers, both increasing the good cholesterol count and lowering the bad cholesterol count. [1] [2]

Purium Power Shake Ingredients Research

  • Carrot juice powder is made from one of the most popular veggies in the world. It’s packed with antioxidants and contains a wealth of nutrition, including vitamin A, C, D, K, and E. [3]
  • Alfalfa leaf and oat grass juice powders assist in improving cholesterol levels, stabilizing blood sugar, and a delivering a healthier digestive system. [4]
  • While very limited, still in the very beginning stages of research, chia appears to have benefits towards the same three areas. It is also a valuable source of many omega-3 fats and protein. Other possible benefits of chia include strong teeth and bones, regulated appetite, and improved mood. [5]
  • Some tests indicate that spirulina has the ability to improve the functioning of the immune system, prevent allergic reactions, and protect from cell damage. As it works to kill bacteria, however, it shows signs of killing the good bacteria along with the bad.

This means that customers who choose to use this product may want to consider taking Purium probiotics to restore the good bacteria that may inadvertently be killed along with the otherwise positive effects expected out of this product.

Purium Cleanse Ingredients

  • Black walnut hull
  • Clove
  • Wormwood
  • Senna leaf
  • Cascara sagrada bark
  • Cellulose

Purium Cleanse Ingredients Research

  • Recent studies appear to indicate that the black walnut hull found in the product has high antioxidant properties. These are great for building the immune system and potentially killing toxins that are already in the body. [6]
  • Clove is used commonly in products that cleanse the body; it is also thought to be beneficial to the liver and colon.
  • Wormwood has been used since antiquity to kill damaging organisms in the body.
  • Senna leaf has shown signs of being especially helpful for stomach and digestive health.
  • Little to no science backs up the idea that cascara sagrada bark can be a beneficial part of a weight-loss cleanse. In fact, evidence shows that cascara sagrada bark can actually be toxic. Cascara sagrada bark appears to have links to high blood pressure and cholestatic hepatitis. [7]

With the exception of cascara sagrada bark, the ingredients in all Purium cleanse products (including the Purium 10-day Cleanse) show positive signs of accomplishing exactly what the product is designed for.

The Purium 10-Day Transformation

If you are on social media, you’ve most likely caught wind of the Purium 10-Day Transformation.

This 10-day transformation is a program masterminded by David Sandoval. This program calls for dieters to cut sugar, gluten, caffeine, dairy, alcohol – basically all foods that aren’t on the cleanse pamphlet – and replace them with Purium shakes for 10 days.

It’s rapidly picking up steam on social media, with Purium using “distributors” to promote and sell their products, much like you would see with any multi-level marketing company.

Purium Results

According to the Purium website, most people lose from 5 up to 20 pounds during the Purium 10-day cleanse. Purium says that, in a 2013 study, participants lost an average of 11.3 pounds in those 10 days.

Out of more than a hundred product reviews, 67 users rated Purium with four stars or higher. However, a whole quarter of those reviews were the lowest, 1-star.

The Mayo Clinic also disputes how effective and long-term a weight-loss cleanse/detox can be:

“…there’s little evidence that detox diets actually remove toxins from the body. Indeed, the kidneys and liver are generally quite effective at filtering and eliminating most ingested toxins.

“If you’re considering a detox diet, get the OK from your doctor first. It’s also important to consider possible side effects. Detox diets that severely limit protein or that require fasting, for example, can result in fatigue. Long-term fasting can result in vitamin and mineral deficiencies.” [8]

Flex Meal Sample Recipes

According to the Naked Nutrients website, “When doing a Lifestyle Transformation or an Athlete’s Transformation, you are advised to have one Flex Meal per day. They are also integral to your success AFTER completing the 10-Day Transformation Cleanse. Remember, Purium is a lifestyle, not a diet. The 10-Day Transformation serves as an effective tool or ‘kick-start’ to help you jump into the lifestyle with great success. The supplements and the Flex Meals help you to maintain it.” [9]

Purium Side Effects

The one thing we noticed is that the most common Purium side effects are related to their detox products. These complaints are:

It’s worth pointing out that some negative side effects are most likely due to the detox process itself. You’re cleansing your body and limiting your food intake so, naturally, you’ll experience something like diarrhea.

For the most part, there are no notable side effects to be worried about here. Purium puts a huge emphasis on natural and quality ingredients, and the lack of information surrounding side effects reflects this.

Purium Pros & Cons

  • Removal of dangerous toxins
  • Weight-loss
  • Improvement of athletic performance
  • Increased energy levels
  • Increased mental focus and emotional stability
  • Anti-aging
  • Improved emotional health
  • Numerous complaints
  • Lawsuits
  • Non-accredited
  • Taste (this has been especially noted by users)
  • D-plus rating
  • Potentially toxic ingredient in their detox product
  • More talk of unwanted side effects than we’d like to see
  • No scientific evidence on the products or formulas specifically
  • High price tag

Purium Lawsuits

A Purium lawsuit was filed in 2011, accusing the company of selling products containing lead.

In 2014, another Purium lawsuit was filed for lack of appropriate warnings on product labels.

Two lawsuits within three periods may be a sign of dishonest advertising and product labelling.

It does this by inhibiting the enzyme citric lyase.

However, neither of these results are available at present. As such, scientific research and reports of customer satisfaction that we have already looked at remain our best sources to discover whether or not Purium products work. [10]

Purium Directions

Purium offers an array of products. If we were to list each one and their directions, we’d be here for a while.

Instead, let’s dive into the 10-Day Transformation and take a close look at what you can expect when participating.

  1. When you wake up, you’ll take five tablets of Super Amino 23, a capsule of Super Lytes and drink 8-24 ounces of water.
  2. Two hours later, you’ll consume two scoops of Power Shake mixed with water or a Flex beverage.
  3. Two hours later, repeat step 1.
  4. After two more hours, repeat step 2.
  5. Two hours later, repeat step 1.
  6. In two more hours, repeat step 2.
  7. Nighttime – Purium instructs you to take a scoop of a Daily Fiber Blend and two tablespoons of Apothe-Cherry mixed with water.

According to the company, if you do this for 10 days you’ll lose weight and feel great.

Purium Weight Loss

A Purium diet plan involves supplements that help curb the appetite, burn fat, encourage exercise, and provide Purium fiber and other nutrients most needed during weight-loss efforts.

The Purium schedule helps dieters get started and reach their weight-loss goals. Purium flex foods are healthy food alternatives to take while on a Purium diet whenever you feel hungry. This helps to not only deal with food cravings but also to begin changing lifestyle patterns with the intention of losing and keeping weight off.

The list of “no-no” foods includes:

Purium flex meals are full meals consisting of all-natural, healthy Purium flex foods. Purium flex meals help not only maintain weight loss but also to keep the body toxin-free if you have already done one of the company’s weight loss cleanses.

The Purium food list includes only items part of the Purium farm to family guarantee.

Weight loss results vary greatly from person to person, but every customer report from customers who followed the Purium schedule reported weight loss that they were satisfied with.

What Does Purium Cost?

The price of Purium’s products is the most commonly reported problem with the company. The Purium 10-day Transformation for weight-loss and detox provides meals for 30 days along with the supplements related to the diet.

The transformation will run you around $260. Being a month-long program, if you don’t see any results, that can really do some damage to your bank account.

The Purium 10-Day Transformation is sold on Amazon for $200, $60 cheaper than on the Purium website.

A $200 10-day pack includes:

  • Purium Power Shake
  • Super Amino 23
  • Apothe
  • Caramel Apple Daily Fiber Blend
  • Super Lytes

Are There Purium Alternatives?

There are tons of detox, weight-loss and overall health products out there. We did some research and found products that are similar to Purium:

  • Skinny Fox Detox
  • Triple Leaf Detox Tea
  • 310 Tea

Purium vs. Alternatives

The Bottom Line – Does Purium Work?

The Purium company has a great philosophy of wanting to help people end their dependence on processed convenience food and start a healthy life. The science behind the ingredients in most of their products are pretty sound, and we like that but aren’t convinced with the actual products themselves – just the ingredients.

If you want to make a change in your life, you should take a supplement that’s easy on your wallet and that has delivered results.

Among the best supplements out there is Burn HD. This product is a 4-ingredient formula, shown in clinical research to help boost metabolism, raise energy levels and burn fat.

The best part is, we’re so confident that you’ll see results, there’s a 2-Week Sample going on so everyone can get in on the action.

We dug deep into the Purium ingredients to give you the details you need. Purium has several products in it’s weight-loss line. We will explore the ingredients in Purium’s Control Pre-Meal Capsules.

American Ginseng

American ginseng is a herb grown primarily in North America.

What is it Supposed to Do?

It is historically used to fight viral infections. More recently it has been used to promote weight loss, to boost energy, and address a variety of other health concerns.

Clinical Research

According to a study published in American Family Physician, “Although preliminary data suggest that ginseng may improve glucose tolerance, no RCTs in humans have shown greater weight loss with ginseng compared with placebo.” [1]

White Kidney Bean Extract

White kidney bean extract is derived from the white kidney bean which is native to Europe, Peru, and the Indies.

What is it Supposed to Do?

It has been historically used to treat a variety of health conditions. Most recently it has gained popularity for reportedly blocking the absorption of starches.

Clinical Research

According to a study published in Alternative Therapies in Health and Medicine, “In an exploratory analysis of data, the subjects who ate the most carbohydrates experienced a significant reduction in both weight and waist size with the addition of the white bean extract compared to the placebo group of the same tertile of carbohydrate consumption.” [2]

Garcinia Cambogia

Garcinia cambogia is derived from a tropical fruit.

What is it Supposed to Do?

It is supposed to regulate cholesterol levels and blood sugar levels. It is also supposed to reduce the body’s ability to make fat and decrease appetite.

Clinical Research

According to a study published in The Journal of the American Medical Association, “Garcinia cambogia failed to produce significant weight loss and fat mass loss beyond that observed with placebo.”

Weight loss can be an ongoing issue never finding the right balance of diet and exercise. Dietspotlight Burn is a clinically proven supplement suggested to help boost metabolism and fat loss. Dieting and exercise can be achieved with this product from studies supporting a boost in energy levels, absolving weight loss plateaus and weight loss.

Garcinia Cambogia Extract

Meta-analysis from 9 trials revealed a small, statistically important difference in weight-loss in favor of HCA (hydroxycitric acid) over placebo (mean difference: −0.88 kg; 95% confidence interval: −1.75, −0.00). The gastrointestinal negative side effects occurred twice as often in the HCA group than in the placebo group in one of the trials. It had been concluded that the RCTs (randomized clinical trials) indicate Garcinia extracts (hydroxycitric acid /HCA) can trigger short-term weight-loss. The magnitude of the results is insignificant and the clinical importance is uncertain. There will need to be trials in the future that are more accurate and better reported. [1]

Nopal Cactus

Optuntia (prickle-pear cactus, Opuntia ficus indica) capsules had not displayed acute hypoglycemic effect and did not have a role in OGTT. Cholesterol and triglycerides had not altered with Opuntia in diabetic subjects serum glucose, although they rose with placebo (P < 0.01 glucose and cholesterol, P = NS triglycerides). In participants who were healthy, glycemia had no change with nopal, while cholesterol and triglycerides had reduced (P < 0.01 vs. placebo). When patients with diabetes mellitus consumed 30 Opuntia capsules daily they noted a slight beneficial outcome on glucose and cholesterol. With that said, the dosage was impractical and not recommended for the treatment of diabetes mellitus. [2]

The specific molecular signaling which triggers an alteration in fat metabolism gene expression is not clear but could be driven by PPAR-γ coactivator 1-α and PPARs. To date, the evidence from human trials to support such claims is meager. There simply needs to be more studies in order to elucidate the effects of GTE (green tea extract) on fat metabolism in addition to the possible improvement of our knowledge and understanding of the underlying mechanisms.
