Green Coffee Bean Extract and Fat Loss – Fact or Fiction?


“Green coffee” is the raw or unroasted beans of Coffea fruits. In order to produce coffee, green coffee beans are cleaned, dried, roasted, ground, and brewed. The weight loss advantages of green coffee bean extract are due to the compound chlorogenic acid; chlorogenic acid isn’t present in roasted coffee beans because it’s broken down during the roasting process. Chlorogenic acid aids weight reduction by inhibiting the buildup of fat, reducing post-meal blood glucose (sugar) levels and decreasing glucose absorption. To have these benefits, green coffee bean extract must have 45-50% chlorogenic acid.

Chlorogenic acid is believed to inhibit the discharge of glucose into the blood vessels. When glucose enters the bloodstream after eating, the liver produces insulin in response to the creation of glucose. Insulin causes your body to store the energy from the glucose as fat. However, chlorogenic acid is believed to slow down the glucose entering the bloodstream -reducing absorption of fat, leading to fat loss. Chlorogenic acid may also make the liver to metabolize fat faster.

Research on green coffee bean extract was published in January 2012 in Diabetes, Metabolic Syndrome and Obesity. Researchers followed 16 overweight adults (BMI > 25) who supplemented with a special green coffee bean extract of chlorogenic acid at different dosages (700 or 1050 milligrams per day) for 12 weeks. The subjects lost an average of almost 18 pounds – 10% of their overall body weight and 4.4% of their total body fat.

Green coffee bean extract may be used by most healthy adults who want to shed weight. It shouldn’t be taken by anyone who is pregnant or breastfeeding. You also shouldn’t take this if you have an allergy to coffee or caffeine.
