You may think it’s the caffeine in Green Coffee Beans that makes them beneficial to weight reduction – and quickly think you don’t want to be loaded up with caffeine. But it seems the key to the success of Green Coffee Beans for weight reduction is not caffeine at all, but the main active ingredient Chlorogenic Acid.
So drinking four cups of black coffee a day won’t help much with fat loss, because the Chlorogenic Acid is destroyed when the coffee beans are roasted for use as a beverage – although caffeine does have a small effect of boosting metabolism.
But it’s also reassuring to know that taking a Green Coffee Bean supplement won’t make you jittery from excessive caffeine given that the amount of caffeine in a daily dose of a fat burner is equivalent to about a quarter of a mug of coffee.
(Chlorogenic Acid is also bitter tasting, so it’s good it is destroyed before you get to consume it.)
How Does Green Coffee Bean Work For Weight Loss?
Reducing the absorption of carbohydrates from the gastrointestinal tract, (which lowers blood glucose levels and flattens out insulin spikes)
Boosting the metabolism or the “burning” of fat in the liver.
These two mechanisms interact to inhibit the absorption of fat and eliminate weight gain.
Other animal studies (in mice and rats) have demonstrated that Chlorogenic Acid can reduce body weight, reduce fat absorbed from the diet, reduce fat stored in the liver and improve the function of the fat burning hormone adiponectin.
Promising Results For Weight Reduction
Although Chlorogenic Acid is considered to be an essential weight reduction ingredient in Green Coffee Beans, it is also true that caffeine helps boost metabolism as well. Several studies have shown metabolism can be lifted from between 3 to 11 percent by caffeine.
Several controlled trials in humans demonstrate that green coffee bean extract can result in significant weight loss.
However, these studies were relatively small and some of them have been criticised because they were industry sponsored.
A scientific review of the human trials concluded that the results were promising but of poor methodology, and more rigorous research was necessary.
Other Advantages of Green Coffee Bean
Green Coffee Beans have other general health benefits besides weight management.
Green Coffee Bean contains polyphenols which, like grape seed extract and green tea, have antioxidants that assist the body neutralize harmful free radicals.
Research has also shown that the Chlorogenic Acid in Green Coffee Bean promotes normal blood pressure.
A 2011 study revealed that Green Coffee antioxidants significantly inhibited the proliferation of cancer cells. The study was performed using liver cancer and colon cancer cells; it’s possible that this applies to the other kinds of cancer as well.
