Being a naturally sourced compound, Chlorogenic acid, a hydroxycinnamic acid (a category of polyphenols), has long been considered a vital antioxidant and anti-inflammatory which slows the discharge of glucose into the bloodstream after the consumption of food. An important natural source of CGA, and one of its primary subclasses – observed as a main metabolite present in urine post-consumption – 5-caffeoylquinic acid (5-CQA), green coffee beans (which provide 5-12g of active CGA per 100g of beans) have become a popular fat loss aid due mainly to the rigorous research that has been done to assess their efficacy. And by all accounts their effectiveness, as will soon be discussed, appears to be extremely sound. But such promising results do not come without several caveats.
Firstly, the beans themselves (which in their original state, before CGA extraction, provide 11% CGA’s and 6% 5-CQA) must be unroasted, unfermented and decaffeinated. Secondly, the extraction process, whereby the finished product, to be truly effective, should contain 45% CGA’s and 10% 5-CQA, must be done so as to remove all impurities and compounds which may negate its positive effects (for example cafestol and kahweol, compounds present in coffee which may elevate blood cholesterol levels). Moreover, once extracted, CGA, when integrated into top-line supplements designed for maximum fat reduction, should be included in sufficiently strong doses so as to elicit the greatest effect.
When supplied in doses of 200mg per serving (which, when taken twice a day, provides 400mg, the ideal dose for optimal fat loss, metabolic efficiency, blood sugar control and insulin modulation) the results can be astounding.
Most fitness devotees know that regular coffee (and its beneficial constituent, caffeine) creates a thermogenic effect to encourage fat reduction while aiding energy production to ramp up physical performance and corresponding fat reduction in line with such improved performance. What is not as well known, however, is coffee’s positive influence on glucose tolerance and its ability to protect against type-2 diabetes. What is seldom considered is the type of coffee bean accountable for the most significant improvements in these areas. Though regular roasted coffee will impart some fat reduction benefits, it is, as noted, green coffee that by a large margin provokes the best results in metabolic efficiency.
With scientific studies confirming that CGA and 5-CQA present in green coffee beans will inhibit glucose-6-phosphatase (a liver enzyme that activates the conversion of glucose-6-phosphate to glucose, thus allowing glucose in the liver to enter the bloodstream) to enhance blood glucose regulation and divert energy production to fat as a major fuel source, Svetol (CGA in its strongest form) is considered by experts, no less highly regarded as TV health advocate Dr. Oz, as a triple threat against disease and obesity.
It reduces the absorption of carbohydrates from food;
It lessens the discharge of carbohydrates from the liver;
It reduces blood sugar levels, thereby forcing the body to utilize fat stores for energy.
By decreasing glucose absorption in the intestine through inhibiting the aforementioned glucose-6- phosphatase, thus encouraging the body to derive its energy requirements from the efficient fuel source, fat, adipose tissue is released into CGA’s – or Svetol’s – capable hands and ugly body fat is permanently banished. Furthermore, by modulating blood sugar levels to aid fat reduction, Svetol serves as an appetite suppressant, thus enabling the user to keep up a smart diet plan while blasting their fat stores (perhaps rendering it a ‘quadruple threat’). Really a breakthrough compound in the combat against obesity and metabolic disease, CGA is to fat loss in the 21st Century as creatine was to muscle building in the 90s.
