What is Green-Fu?

Standard

Green coffee, very simply put, refers to unroasted coffee beans. The coffee we are all accustomed to undergoes an industrial process before it gets poured into a cup and served to you. Part of the process involves roasting the coffee beans which, among other things, decreases the amount of a compound referred to as chlorogenic acid. Therefore, green (unroasted) coffee beans have a higher level of chlorogenic acid in comparison to regular, roasted coffee beans.

Chlorogenic Acid

Studies report that the chlorogenic acid in green coffee provides health benefits that can target heart disease, diabetes, obesity, and other conditions. Green coffee shot to popularity for weight loss after it was mentioned on the Dr. Oz show in 2012. The Dr. Oz show referred to it as “The green coffee bean that burns fat fast” and claimed that no exercise or diet was necessary.

How does it work?

As stated, chlorogenic acid is thought to have numerous health benefits. For high blood pressure, it seems to impact the blood vessels so that blood pressure is reduced. For weight reduction, chlorogenic acid in green coffee appears to affect how your body handles blood sugar and your metabolic rate.

New research shows that extracts from unroasted green coffee beans, taken in supplement form, can cause individuals to lose more than 10 % of their body weight, and all this without dieting or extra exercise!

University of Scranton scientists revealed their surprising results in the Diabetes, Metabolic Syndrome and Obesity Journal after studying subjects who took the supplement. The analysis, which drew wide attention after it was highlighted by popular TV host, Dr. Mehmet Oz, determined that, “Green Coffee Extract may be an effective nutraceutical in reducing weight in pre-obese adults, and may be an inexpensive means of preventing obesity in overweight adults.”

Heather Hausenblas, of the University of Florida College of Health and Human Performance, stated that the Scranton study is only the latest research to point to the benefits of green coffee extracts. “Green coffee bean extract offers a clinically proven way to help support metabolism, help control appetite, and help support healthy blood sugar levels,” Hausenblas stated. “What is so exciting is the science behind Green Coffee Bean showing its weight-loss effects. The number of weight-loss supplements available is daunting, and most weight loss supplements do not have clinical research supporting their claims. Green Coffee Bean is clinically proven to support healthy weight management.”

In the Scranton study, presented last year at a meeting of the American Chemical Society in San Diego, researchers gave 1,050-milligram doses of green coffee extract to 16 overweight adults and tracked their diet, exercise habits, weight, pulse rate, and blood pressure for 22 weeks. The outcomes showed the study participants lost typically 17 pounds (10.5 percent of their body weight) without making dramatic alterations in their diets or exercise routines. No harmful side effects were noted.

Joe Vinson, a chemist at the University of Scranton in Pennsylvania who helped conduct the study, suggested that the team’s findings echo other research that has found green coffee can safely and effectively help reduce weight, when taken as part of balanced and healthy diet by active individuals. “Based on our results, taking multiple capsules of green coffee extract a day, while eating a low fat, healthful diet and exercising regularly, appears to be a safe, effective, inexpensive way to lose weight,” said Vinson in a statement.
