Hello @mumzie, welcome to Connect. If you don't mind sharing a bit more, have you been diagnosed with CLL? I have not heard of treating CLL with green tea extract, is this something that your medical provider or hematologist recommended?

@mumzie, your post inspired me to do some quick searching about green tea extract for CLL patients, and the early research is promising on its ability to kill leukemia cancer cells. Here are a few resources that I found on this topic after you brought it to attention to the community:
