What is Green Coffee Bean Extract?
"Green Coffee" refers to the raw or unroasted seeds (beans) of Coffea fruits. Green coffee beans are cleaned, dried, roasted, ground, and brewed to produce coffee.
Coffee contains hundreds of components, each of which may have potential and independent pharmacological effects. Green Coffee Bean Extract has been touted for its weight-loss benefits.
Coffee is a notable source of caffeine. However, coffee’s effects on glycemic control and weight loss have been attributed to its other components, including chlorogenic acid, which has been shown to improve glucose metabolism in animal studies.
Why not just drink coffee from roasted coffee beans? Because roasting the coffee beans destroys the Cholorgenic Acid. Green coffee bean extract must be processed before the beans are roasted, while they're still in their raw state.
Chlorogenic Acid works by inhibiting the release of glucose in the body while at the same time boosting the metabolism or the “burning” of fat in the liver. These two mechanisms combined work together to inhibit the absorption of fat and eliminate weight gain.
A recent study on green coffee bean was published by Dr. Joe Vinson (University of Scranton, Pennsylvannia), in January 2012 in the Diabetes, Metabolic Syndrome and Obesity Journal. Dr. Vinson followed a group of 16 adults who supplemented their diets with a special green coffee bean extract of chlorogenic acids for 12 weeks. All 16 adults were considered overweight, as demonstrated by a BMI of greater than 25 (a normal BMI is between 18.5 and 25).
The extract the researchers used contained chlorogenic acid from green coffee beans, which also have antioxidant health benefits. The subjects lost an average of almost 18 pounds – this was 10% of their overall body weight and 4.4% of their overall body fat.
A recent episode of Dr. Oz featured Dr. Lindsey Duncan, who spoke on the benefits of green coffee bean extract. Based on the recent research regarding the benefits of green coffee bean extract, he and Dr. Oz both endorse green coffee bean extract to help increase the number of pounds lost without changing your regular routine.
Green Coffee Bean is not a stimulant, won't make you jittery, nervous or raise your heart rate like roasted coffee or ephedra. In fact, the Green Coffee Bean has actually shown in some studies to lower blood pressure – while still boosting metabolism! When looking for a green coffee bean supplement, Dr. Oz recommends that it should contain at least 45% chlorogenic acid.
