Green coffee beans are simply beans that haven’t been roasted. Green coffee beans contain chlorogenic acid, which proponents say slows the release of glucose into the body after a meal, thereby promoting weight loss. When coffee beans are roasted, almost all of the chlorogenic acid is lost. The extract, made with chlorogenic acid, is converted into a capsule form before being sold to consumers.
The University of Scranton in Pennsylvania study, presented at a meeting of the American Chemical Society, involved 16 overweight or obese individuals who took capsules containing green coffee bean extract. The subjects took low doses of the extract supplement, higher doses of the extract supplement, and placebos over a period of 22 weeks. The individuals took the green coffee bean extract pills 30 minutes before a meal three
times each day.
Throughout the study, the participants did not change their eating habits or fitness regimes. On average the research participants lost 17 pounds. This equaled a total body weight decrease of about 10 percent. What’s even more interesting is that the participants also saw a 16 percent decrease in total body fat. This is especially promising since the subjects’
average daily caloric intake was around 2,400 calories and they burned an average of 400 calories by exercising. This calorie level alone would not result in the dramatic weight loss that was observed with the supplemented coffee bean extract.
Exactly what compound in green coffee beans makes them such fat incinerators? Researchers explained that they don’t believe it’s the caffeine. The scientists are convinced that the beneficial effects of green coffee beans can be assigned to their chlorogenic acid. However, chlorogenic acid isn’t found in roasted coffee beans because it is broken down during the
roasting process. The study’s lead researcher also highlights that there were no negative side effects observed from using the green coffee bean extract capsules.
Even though the results of this research are rather groundbreaking, it’s worth noting that this study did have some limitations. The study involved only 16 people, and the study itself was short. Additionally, the subjects in this study took supplements, which isn’t the same as consuming whole foods. Supplements aren’t regulated in the same way that food is.
Chlorogenic acid is naturally present in coffee beans. According to Dr Oz, it’s the chlorogenic acid that does the fat burning. A cup of coffee is nothing like taking the extract. It’s made from roasted coffee beans.
When they heat the beans up to 475 degrees to roast them, it removes the vital ingredient: chlorogenic acid. So you have to get the extract from green coffee beans that have not been exposed to the heating process.
Dr Oz recommends Green Coffee Extract should:
contain 50% Chlorogenic Acid
zero fillers, binders or additives
Svetol brand extract
400 mg of green coffee extract per capsule
