Chlorogenic acid has recently come to the forefront because of its weight loss properties. While it’s slimming qualities are definitely worth shouting about from rooftops, this powerful antioxidant polyphenol also has far reaching health benefits that deserve equal attention.
What exactly is Chlorogenic Acid and what’s all the fuss?
Let’s start by understanding exactly what chlorogenic acid is, and where it comes from. Green coffee beans are the most abundant source of chlorogenic acid in nature. This is why dietary supplements that have green coffee beans are selling successfully around the world.
A lot of you will throw a passionate punch in the air at this point and think “Coffee?! I can do coffee!” It is therefore important to explain that drinking normal coffee or brown coffee will not make you shed weight as those coffee beans have undergone a roasting process. This roasting process almost completely destroys the chlorogenic acid content in them, thereby making it ineffective for losing weight.
So if its weight loss you are after, you have to go green! Green or raw (unroasted) coffee beans are a powerful antioxidant, an efficient weight loss tool, and also recognised as a superfood.
So how exactly does Chlorogenic Acid work?
Here’s where things get interesting. When you consume green coffee, chlorogenic acid enters your body, as a result of which your liver stops releasing glucose in your blood stream. Subsequently, your system reacts and starts producing energy by using glucose contained in the cells of the fat trapped in your body. So chlorogenic acid not only prevents the absorption of fat in your body, it also activates the metabolism of fats in the liver.
These two things produce an effect that resembles what a program of dieting and exercising can have on your body and make chlorogenic acid a very effective tool for fast weight loss.
Thermogenesis and Chlorogenic Acid
The good news doesn’t end there. Based on some studies conducted, chlorogenic acid can also induce body fat loss by increasing the rate at which calories are transformed into heat, also referred to as thermogenesis. This capacity to deplete fat stores in the body by triggering thermogenesis and control the intake of fat (so that no extra fat is stored) while burning off the old fat makes chlorogenic acid a truly formidable fat-buster.
