Green coffee beans are coffee beans that have not been roasted. Roasting is what gives coffee beans their deep brown color and appealing aroma. Green coffee beans are high in Chlorogenic Acid, which is lost in the roasting process. Chlorogenic Acid is the active weight loss ingredient in Green Coffee Bean Extract.
Green Coffee Bean Extract™ Uses the Fat Burning and Weight Loss Power Of the Most Potent Green Coffee Bean Extract.
In a clinical trial in 2012 eight men and eight women were followed for 22 weeks to examine the effectiveness and safety of green
coffee extract at reducing weight and body mass.
Each participant randomly received a high dose
(1050mg), low dose (700mg) or placebo in isolated
six-week trials. Body weight, BMI and percent body fat
were measured, along with blood pressure and heart rate.
The subjects of the study saw notable reductions in weight,
BMI and percent body fat. They also saw a decrease in heart
rate. This was achieved without any dietary or exercise changes for any of the participants during the study. Every test subject completed the study and showed no negative side-effects at all.
Green coffee bean extract contains chlorogenic acid which has been shown to inhibit sugar absorption from starch, decrease caloric input and have an effect on glucose metabolism, particularly after meals. This deprivation of glucose is an explanation for a reduction in BMI and body fat.
Additionally, chlorogenic acid has been shown to block the absorption of fats
from the intestine and activate fat metabolism in the liver. The Chlorogenic
acid found in Green Coffee Beans is a natural phytochemical that is
found in lots of different of plants, with very high concentrations in
Green Coffee Beans. It is also considered a powerful anti-oxidant.
I don't usually recommend weight loss supplements at all, and especially not weight loss supplements that claim rapid and easy weight loss. I believe that a healthy diet and exercise are the key to weight loss. However, there are remarkable superfoods available to help you see great results sooner. There's a lot of buzz right now about one superfood in particular, the green coffee bean, and I'm pretty stunned by the research myself.
The recommended dose is 1 capsule twice daily, each 30-60 minutes before meals, taken preferably on an empty stomach with a full glass of water. And remember that combining Green Coffee Bean Extract with a healthy diet and exercise can improve your results! Always consult with your doctor before starting any weight loss supplement program.
