WHAT IS GREEN COFFEE BEAN EXTRACT and HOW DOES IT WORK?
The most recent study on Green Coffee Bean published in the Diabetes, Metabolic Syndrome and Obesity journal followed a group of 16 adults who supplemented with Green Coffee Extract for 12 weeks. Over the course of the study, the subjects lost an average of 17 pounds each – this was 10 percent of their overall body weight and 16 percent of their overall body fat!
The important natural active compound in green coffee bean extract is called Chlorogenic Acid. 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.
The Green Coffee Bean supplement has about 23 mgs of caffeine per serving whereas your daily cup of coffee has over 100 mg so green coffee bean is not a stimulant, it doesn’t make you jittery and nervous and raise your heart rate like roasted coffee. In fact, the Green Coffee Bean has actually shown in some studies to lower blood pressure while still boosting metabolism.
Unfortunately, roasting coffee beans to give them that distinct color, aroma and flavor for coffee destroys the Cholorgenic Acid, which is the key component to supporting weight management.
Overall Health – Many polyphenols function as antioxidants. Chlorogenic Acid is a polyphenol that has been shown to neutralize several classes of carcinogenic compounds before they can cause cancer.
Cardiovascular Health – High homocysteine concentrations in blood is a risk indicator for cardiovascular disease. Chlorogenic Acid has been shown to aid in the decrease of total plasma homocysteine levels in those who ingested Chlorogenic Acid during clinical trials.
Chlorogenic Acid has also shown positive results for treating hypertension. By neutralizing free radicals and regenerating vitamin E, Green Coffee Beans have been shown to inhibit lipid and LDL degradation, thereby promoting optimal cardiovascular health.
Blood pressure (both systolic and diastolic) has also shown to decrease significantly during clinical studies of Chlorogenic Acid ingestion. During clinical trials, there was no difference in body mass index and pulse rate between test groups, nor were any apparent side effects detected. It also inhibits oxidation of the low-density lipoprotein (LDL), or bad cholesterol that can damage the arteries and accelerate atherosclerosis. Limiting this process is thought to help prevent cardiovascular disease.
Healthy Blood Sugar Levels – Chlorogenic Acid has been touted as supporting healthy blood sugar levels. A number of population studies identified Chlorogenic Acid users as being substantially less likely to get Type 2 diabetes. Further research has suggested the reason for this as being the effects of the Chlorogenic Acid on glucose metabolism. Glucose is stored in the liver in a polysaccharide called glycogen, which is a long, branched chain of insoluble glucose molecules. In a process known as glycogenolysis, the enzyme glucose-6-phosphatase releases free glucose into the bloodstream, where it circulates to various organs. If glycogenolysis is inhibited, the body gets its energy from fat cells. This reduces blood glucose levels, helping to reduce the symptoms. Also, reducing the number of fat stores leads to weight loss.
The combined benefits of weight loss, cardiovascular health, healthy blood sugar levels and overall disease prevention due to the high levels of antioxidants in Green Coffee Beans all work synergistically to support a healthier, happier and more vibrant you!
