Green coffee beans are beans that have not been roasted. Green coffee beans contain chlorogenic acid which has been proven to slow the discharge of glucose into the body after a meal, thereby promoting weight reduction. When coffee beans are roasted, the chlorogenic acid is lost. Hence the reason why coffee consumption has not shown the same weight reduction benefits as green coffee bean extract.
Nine scientific studies evaluated green coffee bean’s health advantages. A minimum 45 percent chlorogenic acid content was contained in the green coffee bean extract used in the clinical research studies.
Weight Reduction Achieved with no Diet Changes
Research published in Diabetes, Metabolic Syndrome and Obesity examined the impact of green coffee bean extract on weight loss. The study’s participants were randomized to receive either 1050 mg of green coffee bean extract, 700 mg of green coffee bean extract or a placebo each and every day. The analysis lasted 22 weeks or just over five months. The participants were asked not to change their diets and on average people ate 2400 calories per day which does not represent a calorie-reduced diet. The average fat loss in the study was 17 pounds with the lowest fat loss being seven pounds and the highest 26 pounds. Body fat also declined by 16 percent.
Chlorogenic Acid: Powerful Active Ingredient
Researchers believe it is the chlorogenic acid that assists with weight reduction as chlorogenic acid has been proven to inhibit sugar absorption from starch consumption. Chlorogenic acid has a significant influence on glucose metabolism where it was found to reduce post-meal glucose levels. Other studies have shown that chlorogenic acid retards the absorption of fats from the intestines and also activates fat metabolism in the liver and lowers triglycerides.
A randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind study published in the Journal of International Medical Research investigated the efficacy and tolerability of green coffee bean extract. Green coffee bean extract containing a minimum of 45% chlorogenic acid was found to lessen the absorption of sugar in the gastrointestinal tract. Forty obese volunteers were part of the 12-week study. Body weight, body composition, and blood pressure were recorded at baseline and every month during the study. The results showed a significant difference in weight reduction of over 10 pounds in the treatment group versus 2.4 pounds in the placebo group. BMI decreased by up to 10%.
