About Mega-T Probiotics
Attention everyone who wants to lose weight – have you heard about Mega-T Probiotics? If so, you’re probably wondering whether or not this new supplement, which claims to combine green tea and probiotics, really can help you advance your weight loss goals in an easy, healthy manner.
In other words, are the claims made by Green-T Probiotics supported by clinical evidence? And perhaps more importantly, is it worth your money? We zoned in on the facts, and here’s what we learned.
Mega-T Probiotics Details
As with most Mega-T products, one of their primary ingredients is green tea, which they claim improves fat oxidation in your body, which is then immediately available to be converted into usable energy. On top of this, the company claims that the epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) contained in green tea may protect your body from harmful oxygen-containing free radicals.
With this in mind, the manufacturer has recently combined green tea with probiotics in order to formulate their new Mega-T Probiotics supplement. In addition to the claimed benefits provided by green tea, this supplement can also help to provide better carb and protein digestion, which may ultimately help you lose more weight than using green tea alone.
As such, Mega-T Probiotics is claimed to provide the following benefits:
- Helps burn calories and fat
- Boosts metabolism
- Suppresses appetite
- Increases energy
- Provides antioxidants for immune system support
Mega-T Probiotics is available in 2 different formulas:
- Mega-T Green Tea w/Probiotics & Calcium – Contains 100mg of calcium in order to support bone health.
- Mega-T Green Tea w/Probiotics & Antioxidants – Includes acai berry, which is claimed to be an additional antioxidant.
By taking 1 pill with water 20 minutes prior to a meal, the Mega-T Probiotics website claims that, when used in conjunction with regular exercise and a healthy diet, you can expect to lose at least 2 pounds per week (more about this in the Bottom Line section). To help support you with this, the Mega-T Probiotics website also includes exercise and 10-week meal plans.
Mega-T Probiotics Pricing & Refund Policy
According to the product’s website, Mega-T probiotics are available in 30, 60, 90, and 100-tablet packages. However, during our research, we found that Mega-T Probiotics supplements were not listed on the company’s ordering page, although most of their Green Tea-based supplements range in price between $7.29 and $16.79.
In addition, no refund information is available on either the Mega-T Probiotics website or on the manufacturer’s website. As such, you may want to contact the company at 800-451-5773 to inquire about this prior to placing your order.
Although Mega-T Probiotics appears to be a very new product (more about this in the following section), their supplements are available through a variety of third-party retailers, including Amazon.com, Walmart, Walgreens, Drugstore.com, and many others.
What’s the Bottom Line About Mega-T Probiotics?
If you’ve been researching weight loss supplements for even a short period of time, you’re probably leery of the claims made by many manufacturers. But is this case with Mega-T Probiotics? Likely so, and here’s why:
First, the manufacturer also sells a variety of other weight loss supplements that contain an assortment of “flavor-of-the-day” ingredients such as Green Coffee Bean Extract, Raspberry Ketones, and Glucomannan-based products (similar to Lipozene and Skinny Fiber). Unfortunately, while they may be all the rage nowadays, they ultimately have very little clinical evidence proving their efficacy, which includes green tea.
However, as we mentioned in our Probiotics article, these beneficial bacteria have a fair amount of clinical evidence showing they’re effective for balancing digestion, boosting immune system response, in addition to providing several other key benefits. Despite these positives, there remains insufficient evidence that balanced digestion necessarily translates into weight loss. For additional information on how to separate hype from fact, be sure to read through HighYa’s Nutritional Supplements Buyer’s Guide.
Next, while CCA Industries, Inc.—Mega-T Probiotics’ manufacturer—has been in business since 1983, their probiotics-based supplements appear to be very new, and as a result, there is a lack of online customer reviews. With this said, many of their other supplements appear to have mixed online reviews, with the most common complaint citing failure to work (some even complained of gaining weight) and a jittery feeling, which is likely due to the caffeine content. As such, if you’re sensitive to caffeine, you may want to avoid any Mega-T supplements.
Finally, the Mega-T Probiotics website does not provide a product label or an ingredients list for the supplement. We were able to locate labels for most of the other Mega-T products on the CCA Industries main website, although as mentioned above, their probiotics supplements were not listed at the time of our research.
Bottom line: While Mega-T Probiotics aren’t priced as high as many other weight loss supplements we’ve reviewed, there remains insufficient evidence to show that green tea—or even probiotics for that matter—are effective ingredients in the battle against weight loss. When it comes down to it, nothing can replace the immense benefits associated with regular exercise and a healthy diet, so you may think about spending your hard-earned money on something other than Mega-T Probiotics.

Mega-T with Probiotics
Please DO NOT discontinue or replace your current MegaT weight loss program with Acai Berry! This has been the miracle and healthiest health-wise supplement for me since my surgery and diagnosis of osteoporosis. I love it because it not only facilitates weight loss, but it also helps me maintain, I felt good, and healthy. I almost cried when I saw the New With Probiotics, but I tried it anyway because the Acai berry with the calcium was gone. The new one gives me terrible nighttime and sleep headaches and I'm swollen. I don't like it or feel good anymore. If you must continue manufacturing the Probiotics, will you please continue the one WITHOUT it also, but still with Acai berry and a Green Coffee? PLEASE and thank you!
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
