Mg = Magnesium

Thanks for your advice, I'll make sure to update regularly. For now, I'll add Omega 3 and Vitamin C and make sure I take it on an empty stomach. Hoping it works.

Thanks robbyangel, I obviously did a lot of things wrong, such as coffee with my extract in morning, whereas my second dose was never on an empty stomach. Will take it with C and fish oil after fasting, and reassess after my next cycle.  

Not giving up yet. I do think its less severe this time around and I normally break-out the entire month.

And I also took Mg at night which lessens its bioavailability.

Just to let everyone know, have quite a breakout on chin and forehead area. I am premenstrual, so egcg is obviously not tremendously effective in this regard. What next?!

I take GT standardized extract: 300 mg
Of which total polyphenols: 285 mg
Of which EGCG: 130 mg

I take 2 in the morning and 2 at night.

Will still try and source piperine and take it with Vitamin C as suggested by robbyangel (study).

robbyangel, why do you think it works so well, I am amazed at the reduction of oil on my face? Does it block DHT or is it purely just anti-inflammatory? Will see if I can get piperine this week-end, however, the green tea extract is working regardless, so I might not bother if I cant get any.

Do you also drink green tea?
