Green coffee bean extract is among the newer additions to the diet and weight loss supplements available. It may be the new kid on the block but that doesn’t mean it’s ineffective. In reality, preliminary research is showing it to be a helpful accessory for a healthy lifestyle, a good boost for any individual trying to make better choices, and a supplement that provides plenty of benefits with marginal side effects. Loaded with antioxidants - especially one called chlorogenic acid - green coffee extract looks a lot like a powerhouse of health benefits in an easy supplement to take.

Unlike a lot of other chemical synthetic blends in the marketplace, green coffee extract is a naturally occurring substance found in the humble coffee bean. This is the very same bean that is picked, roasted, ground, and brewed into mugs each day. The primary difference is that green coffee beans are the raw, un-roasted beans that still have all of their chemical compounds intact.

Roasting coffee beans, as with cooking a variety of other foods, may enhance the taste but kills off lots of the beneficial substances locked away in the beans. Chlorogenic acid, is a plant-based compound that develops in tandem with caffeine and is the powerhouse antioxidant that green coffee boasts plenty of, is greatly reduced in roasted beans. The roasting process actually breaks the compound down so that very low levels are found in roasted coffee. For a concentrated dose of this health boosting compound, a top quality green coffee supplement can deliver plenty of antioxidants to the body, where they can do their good work.

There are a host of benefits that come from adding chlorogenic acid from green coffee into your regimen. Studies show that the antioxidant benefits heart health, balances out blood glucose levels, fights free radicals in the body, and gives a boost of energy. It may even slow the absorption of glucose into the body, possibly preventing fat storage for the long term. For anyone seeking to lose or maintain a current weight, or to stave off blood sugar issues, chlorogenic acid may be one piece in the puzzle to evening out problematic blood sugar levels.

Recent studies of green coffee extract on subjects aiming to shed weight link chlorogenic acid to promising results. Without adjusting calories or fat intake, most of the subjects lost between 8 and 15 pounds during the period of the 22-week study. Not all of the individuals lost weight and some lost upwards of 25 pounds. Green coffee extract is by no means a miracle drug but it does appear to be a beneficial supplement for most of us who wish to slim down.

While caffeine surely plays a part in energy levels, doctors don’t think that it alone is responsible for the impressive results of green coffee extract weight loss studies. Since the antioxidant chlorogenic acid may have an effect on glucose absorption in the body, many of the subjects may have responded adequately to slowing or all but stopping the process of long term fat storage taking place in their bodies. Early studies show promise but more scientific tests need to be done to more fully understand the effects of green coffee bean.

Weight loss can be easier with the aid of chlorogenic acid, found in top quality green coffee extract. As a supplement with numerous potential benefits but very few demonstrated side effects, green coffee looks to be a safe and helpful supplement to include in to any diet and exercise plan.

I prefer Green-Fu. Its all natural with its Moringa and Organic Green Bean Coffee Extracts

Thanks for bringing this to our attention.
I however question the validity of those studies you cited. I would like to see double blind peer reviewed studies from researcjere who have no vested financial interest in the outcome of the study. I would also like to see those studies on human subjects, as mice are not furry people. Otherwise without that, all you are doing is shilling for swhatever company you are mentioning their product (Green Fu). .

As you mentioned "very few demonstrated side effects" I looked up Cholorogenic Acid and I found several pages of results. One of those results may be found here ~ http://www.healthline.com/health-news/aging-g...
I also found this on WebMD interesting ~ http://www.webmd.com/vitamins-supplements/ing... The side effects page lists some IMO serious problems: * "Abnormally high levels of homocysteine (which may be associated with conditions such as heart disease)." * "Bleeding disorders" made worse. * "Diabetes: Some research suggests that caffeine contained in green coffee might change the way people with diabetes process sugar. Caffeine has been reported to cause increases as well as decreases in blood sugar." * "Diarrhea: Green coffee contains caffeine. The caffeine in coffee, especially when taken in large amounts, can worsen diarrhea" * "Heart disease: When taken at high doses over a short time period, a certain component of green coffee may increase the levels of a particular amino acid in the body (known as homocysteine) that is associated with an increased risk of heart disease. Also, other components of green coffee (known as diterpenes) have been associated with increased cholesterol levels, which are also associated with an increased risk of heart disease." * "High blood pressure: Taking caffeine found in green coffee might increase blood pressure in people with high blood pressure."

There are more potential side effects listed but IMO these are the biggies.

I also found it interesting to note that Web MD also provides a place where users review a product or medication. That may be found here ~ http://www.webmd.com/vitamins-supplements/ing... I believe it is telling that for those 126 reviewers in the aggregate under the effectiveness category only 2 (of 5 possible stars) felt this was effective. Under the ease of use category, 4 of 5 stars said it was easy to use. Then under satisfaction again only 2 of 5 stars were satisfied with the product.

Reading individual comments shows the questionable practices of several companies who have jumped on this bandwagon.

I pray you are working for a company which is not on this list of companies who are doing that sort of thing to folks.

To reiterate: I would like to see double blind peer reviewed studies from researcjere who have no vested financial interest in the outcome of the study. I would also like to see those studies on human subjects.

God's best to you Tim

I am always interested in something that might help me lose weight, since being on insulin seems to make it hard for me to drop any pounds. I have high blood pressure and decreased kidney function though, and you did not mention either. I have been told to steer clear of caffeine for this reason. Is it safe?

To answer your question of safety of this suppliment you may get an idea from this article ~ http://sprudge.com/green-coffee-extract-is-it...

I am on dialysis and I steer clear from coffee or other suppliments like Green coffee bean extract.

To drop the pounds, I have found that removing all starches (including starchy vegetables) and all products made from any kind of grain, helped me remove 65 lbs in a matter of 5 months. I have pretty well kept it off for the past 3 yrs.

Even the green coffee bean extract did work, after it had done its work (which to me is doubtful) you will likely stop using it. That may lead you to put it all back on again. Rather counterproductive IMHO.

Keep your carbs low and the fat will likely go away.

God's best to you
