Exciting new research demonstrates that an ingredient in raw coffee beans can result in successful weight loss.
However this ingredient – known as chlorogenic acid – is destroyed when coffee beans are roasted, so that the weight reduction benefit from drinking regular coffee is much less.
Weight gain and obesity are a global health crisis. Problems with cost and potential adverse reactions of prescription fat loss drugs have resulted in the investigation of nutraceuticals such as green coffee extract, known to have health advantages by influencing glucose and fat metabolism.
Raw coffee beans are the most abundant natural method to obtain chlorogenic acid – but it can also be found in peaches, prunes, strawberries, blueberries, potatoes as well as other plant products.
Previous research has revealed that chlorogenic acid reduces the release of glucose into the blood stream, ultimately contributing to reduced fat absorption. Chlorogenic acid also reduces blood cholesterol levels and improves glucose tolerance.
A 22-week crossover study recently looked at the efficacy and safety of a commercial green coffee extract at reducing weight and body mass in 16 overweight adults, who received either high- or low-dose green coffee extract in separate six-week treatment periods.
Study authors observed significant reductions in bodyweight, body mass index (BMI) and percent body fat, suggesting that green coffee extract may be an effective and inexpensive approach to reduce weight in overweight adults.
An all natural pill or capsule that helps to regulate blood sugar and promotes fat reduction simultaneously would be a major advance in the treatment of type 2 diabetes. Already, one large study indicates a 50% risk reduction for people who drank seven cups of coffee a day compared to those who drank only two cups a day.
To paraphrase – all the evidence points to chlorogenic acid as the active ingredient in green coffee beans that aids fat loss and may assist in improving glucose control in normal subjects, plus in people suffering from pre-diabetes and diabetes.
Green coffee bean extract is normally consumed as a supplement since drinking liquid coffee made from unroasted coffee beans would have a bitter and unpleasant taste. Also, you’d need to drink a lot of this type of coffee to get a sufficient dosage of chlorogenic acid for weight loss and other health benefits.
