Green coffee is the latest craze in an endless stream of so-called weight loss miracle diets.
This product is believed to have health benefits not only for weight loss, but also for the prevention of heart disease, diabetes, and more.
Does it really work?
If so, where’s the proof?
And above all, is it safe?
What Is It?
Coffee beans are green seeds found inside of a bright red berry.
When these beans are roasted, the seeds turn brown, giving them a flavor and aroma that coffee drinkers love.
To create green coffee bean extract, the seeds are left unroasted.
Instead they’re soaked and then concentrated to create an extract.
The Health Benefits of Chlorogenic Acid
Chlorogenic Acid is the key active ingredient found in abundance in these beans.
Chlorogenic Acid is destroyed whenever coffee is roasted.
The latest research shows that Chlorogenic Acid provides numerous health benefits:
- Healthy Weight Loss
- Boosts Metabolism
- Decreased Hunger
- Healthy Blood Pressure
- Cardiovascular Health
- Healthy Blood Sugar Levels
- Antioxidant Protection Against Disease
Chlorogenic Acid also prevents fat build-up and reduces the gain of body weight.
Does It Work?
The product was featured on The Dr. Oz TV Show.
The doctor revealed the results from his own investigation.
One hundred ladies were recruited.
Half were given a green coffee bean supplement (400 mg) and the rest were secretly given a placebo.
As instructed, they made no changes in their diets.
Two weeks later, the group who took the supplement lost an average of 2 pounds.
The placebo group lost an average of 1 pound.
(Disclaimer: Dr. Oz does not endorse any particular brand.)
Is It Safe?
Green coffee bean extract has been found to be safe and without any symptoms.
Nevertheless, since it is a coffee derivative and since it does contain caffeine (though in reduced quantities), it may cause sleeplessness and agitation if taken in large doses.
Those experiencing anxiety or depression should be cautious because caffeine can intensify those emotions.
Other than eating nutritious food, women should not engage in any diet plan during pregnancy.
The health benefits of green coffee bean extract include an enhanced metabolism and decreased hunger pains. Studies show that it is safe and effective for weight loss.
One final word of caution: Not all green coffee is created equal. Make sure the product is of the highest quality. Make sure that the supplement is extracted from pure, fresh beans that are both raw and organic.
