Coffee is among the most frequently consumed beverages in the world. Many people consume it for the energizing effects of caffeine but it is not something one would usually associate with having ‘health benefits’. However, green coffee bean extract may just be another story. So what exactly is this new supplement that has many in the health world buzzing and why are supplements using the extracts being touted as some of the greatest products to hit the weight loss market?
Green coffee bean extract is made from un-roasted coffee beans that can actually be either red or green in color. The beans are ground into a fine powder and then made into capsules to be taken as a dietary supplement (for those they are deemed suitable).
Green coffee bean extract is said to contribute to improved overall digestion and metabolism. In addition to weight loss, green coffee bean extract contains high levels of the antioxidant, chlorogenic acid, which aids the body in maintaining healthy cells.
Chlorogenic acid, believed to be the most important factor in green coffee beans’ effectiveness in weight management, is destroyed when coffee beans are roasted for traditional coffee brewing.
The addition of green coffee bean extract as a supplement could be the boost that some people need to take a step towards a slimmer and more naturally energetic lifestyle.
According to the latest human research study conducted by Doctor Joe Vinson at the University of Scranton in Pennsylvania, there is a substance that is found only in unroasted coffee beans that contains chlorogenic acid that is said to help:
- Lower blood pressure
- Regulate blood sugar levels
- Boost metabolism
- Burn stored fat from the body
Chlorogenic acid is found in many plants, but coffee beans have particularly high amounts. However, researchers have confirmed that regular roasted coffee beans don’t produce the same results as raw unroasted coffee beans. Once coffee beans undergo the roasting process to give the coffee beans their distinct flavor and aroma, the live chlorogenic acid is destroyed by the heat and therefore becomes ineffective for losing weight.
The way green coffee bean extract supposedly works is the chlorogenic acid inhibits the release of glucose into the blood stream while heating up the body to boost metabolism and quickly burn stored fat in the body. This process of heating up the body to burn fat cells as energy is known as thermogenesis.
Incorporating a healthy diet and exercise plan into a daily lifestyle will help you lose weight much faster than by taking the supplement alone, but it may just be the boost that you require.
Best of all, green coffee extract does not contain high amounts of caffeine so it will not cause jitters or nervousness as a cup of coffee usually does!
