What is it? Green tea is made from Camellia sinensis plant leaves. The main active ingredients in green tea are believed to be the antioxidant epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) and caffeine. Most often consumed as a beverage, green tea is also available in pill form as an extract. According to the NMCD, there are 3,835 products on the market that contain green tea. The amounts of EGCG and caffeine can vary in each product because growing conditions, leaf age and storage can have an effect. Some extracts will state what percentage of EGCG and/or caffeine is present, but typically a cup of green tea will contain between 80 and 100 milligrams (mg) of EGCG and between 10 and 80 mg of caffeine.

I got my cat from a shelter about 2 weeks ago, and he came very healthy. the vet did a check-up and said he was overweight so they recommended the very expensive science diet metabolic formula. About a week in, we started toilet training this cat, and so we were able to see that he had blood in his stool starting about a week ago. He was tested for parasites when he was at the vet and de-wormed, additionally he isn’t vomiting or having any trouble like that but his feces is very soft and sometimes diarrhea-like although not all the way. The mystery is this bloody stool which has continued and gotten worse the last few days. I talked to my dad today, and he asked me about the food. I started looking up reviews, and saw horrible reviews started after these “new improved formula”. The metabolic formula seems to be very new and not even have reviews, but it seems so likely this is the cause of his stool problems, i will be switching him off science diet immediately. I hate the idea that so much CORN MEAL and GLUTEN is being used in cat food. How awful…they just through the cheapest things in. I’ll be making my own cat food from now on.
