How can I make my own green tea extract?
This question could go under both "Health" and "Pets" but I chose this one as the most relevant.
I drink alot of different types of tea (black, green, red, white, herbal, you name it) so I have alot of supply around. And recently my poor little kitty was diagnosed with a cancerous soft tissue sarcoma in his hind leg. One of the many things our Veterinary Oncologist has suggested to us is supplements of green tea extract daily (as it has shown positive influence in human studies of survival rate with different types of cancer). It wouldn't hurt to give it a try.
So the more detailed question here is, how can I make my own concentrated liquid green tea extract without over steeping the tea and breaking down the molecules of the beneficial antioxidants?
And as far as dosage goes I have a general idea of how much extract to give (about 30 mg per day) if it's pure (like in a drugstore capsule).
Any thoughts or ideas would be appreciated.
