The Science of Chlorogenic Acid


Green coffee extract has quickly grown to become the top selling fat reduction product available on the market. In just a few short months, many people around the globe have harnessed the potency of green coffee bean extract to shed pounds and burn away fat.

It has been proven that the main active component in green coffee bean extract is a powerful hydrocinnamic acid called chlorogenic acid. According to Dr. Joe Vinson, a chemist at the University of Scranton, chlorogenic acid can cause weight loss by inhibiting glycogenoylsis. Glycogenolysis is the process by which glycogen is transformed into glucose and glucose-1-phosphate. If this process is inhibited, our body breaks down fat cells into usable energy. This is the way Vinson believes chlorogenic acid causes weight reduction.

Dr. Vinson observed this process firsthand in a clinical trial he held early in 2012. In the study, 16 adults (8 male, 8 female) were given one of three supplements over a 22-week time period. Participants either received a 1,050mg high dose of green coffee extract, a 750mg low dose of green coffee bean extract, or a placebo. This acted as a self-control instead of having a separate placebo group.

Following the 22-week period, participants lost approximately 10% of their starting weight on average. Likewise, participants lost 16% of their total fat mass, by volume, as well.

These results came as a surprise given the daily caloric consumption recorded by researchers. Researchers discovered that participants averaged a calorie intake of 2,400 calories daily, which is a much higher caloric consumption than is traditionally needed to facilitate. Plus, each participant had lost a noticeable amount of weight, which lead researchers to determine that green coffee bean extract and chlorogenic acid can actually cause fat loss.

Since this study, the interest in green coffee bean extract and chlorogenic acid has skyrocketed. Unfortunately, the study is only preliminary in nature and other clinical trials are currently being planned on a larger scale to verify these results again. Likewise, they have had passed the peer review process, which suggests it has not been scrutinized by outside experts.

Chlorogenic acid is still a new substance and the science behind chlorogenic acid looks promising. As studies continue to come out, it is only a matter of time before we better understand just how chlorogenic acid affects our body that makes it effective for long-term fat loss.
