  1. Green coffee beans are those that have not been roasted. Roasting coffee has a tendency to substantially reduce the quantity of chlorogenic acid, which has been shown to be good at weight loss. Green coffee beans have significantly higher amounts of chlorogenic acid in comparison to roasted coffee beans, and this acid is known to provide a range of benefits together with weight reduction, including the chance to help diabetes, heart problems and other major health conditions. Green coffee beans and weight reduction are phrases that are commonly seen together lately. That is because chlorogenic acid can affect the body’s metabolic process and how it handles blood sugar levels. That is why green coffee bean extract supplements with chlorogenic acid are thought to be a extremely effective weight loss tool. Studies done have indicated that taking green coffee extract supplements can help dieters to shed pounds, even when they do not change the way that they eat. An investigation done by a research chemist from the University of Scranton in Pennsylvania demonstrated that subjects taking these extract supplements lost on average 17 pounds without making any lifestyle or diet changes. Study subjects taking green coffee bean extract lost around 16 percent of their body fat, while they ingested around 2,400 calories each day and only burned about 400 of those calories during daily exercise. Anyone who has ever attempted to lose weight knows that ingesting 2,000 calories per day that are not burned away in exercise is commonly not the best way to reduce body fat. Subjects from the study however, did lose body fat and did not make any alterations in how or what they ate throughout the study. While these results are outstanding, many experts think that the study was rather limited and more scientific studies are needed in order to properly gauge the effectiveness of green coffee bean extract on weight loss. Some scientists however, think that unroasted coffee beans with chlorogenic acid are a legitimate tool to help overweight individuals shed excess weight. Logically, using quality green coffee supplements along with improved diet would increase the prospects for weight loss success. Drinking coffee on its own will not produce much weight loss because the chlorogenic acid content is seriously depleted once the coffee bean goes through the roasting stage. With regards to the quantity of the extract that is required to lose weight, the conventional wisdom stemming from the Dr. Vinson study, recommendations by TV Host Dr. Oz, and reputable health supplement companies indicate a green coffee dosage of 400 mg (assuming 50% chlorogenic acid content) taken 3 times per day, ahead of meals, should be sufficient to replicate the results from the Vinson study. Dr. Joe Vinson is the research chemist from the University of PA whose research initiated the interest in supplements made from green coffee bean extracts for losing fat. The Vinson study done involved 16 individuals who were considered to be overweight and of these subjects, half took the extract and the other half took a simple placebo. Those taking the green coffee bean extract showed a substantial decline in weight with regards to pounds, in addition to body fat. The dosing consisted of just 700 mg for some study participants making up a low-dose group and up to 1,050 mg daily for the higher dose group. Both the low-dose and high-dose groups successfully weight over the 22-week term of the study. A beverage made from green coffee beans do not possess the aroma or taste of brewed coffee made from roasted coffee beans. Actually a beverage made from raw, green coffee beans would be extremely bitter and unpalatable. So, supplements manufactured from extracts of green coffee beans are the best way to ingest chlorogenic acid from green coffee beans. Dr. Vinson has up to now published two noteworthy studies on the health advantages of green coffee supplements, one in 2012 and the other in April 2013. The Vinson studies were small pilot studies and more research needs to be done. But up to now, the outcomes are impressive and encouraging. Additionally, unlike some prescription drugs that have been tried for losing fat, none of the participants in the preliminary Vinson research have reported any negative green coffee bean extract or chlorogenic acid side effects. Keep in mind, consumers ought to consult a certified physician before commencing any supplementation program, especially if they are pregnant, breastfeeding, or have any underlying health conditions. Why not try Green-Fu? It has natural plant based fat burners.
  2. If you're one of the thousands of people who drinks coffee for that jolt of caffeine to jump-start your day, you're probably tired of listening to how your caffeine habit is ruining your overall health. In the end, excessive level of caffeine has been associated with putting on weight, increased stress, poor sleep and other health issues. Well, enough of the bad about coffee; here's a little good: Coffee, especially the fruit of the coffee bean, also has a health-promoting phytonutrient called chlorogenic acid. Studies suggest that consuming 3-4 cups of coffee daily (which lots of people do) reduces the risk of developing insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes, and is effective in weight reduction. Whether the coffee is caffeinated or decaffeinated makes no difference. What's to account for these health advantages? Chlorogenic acid seems to impact how glucose is processed, thus assisting the body to burn fat and use it as energy. While it is also present in high amounts in cherries and plums, research suggests coffee is chlorogenic acid's greatest dietary source. Obviously, degrees of this phytonutrient will vary more or less widely in different processed roasted coffee beans. Still, among coffee beans, the dried, raw green bean of the coffee fruit, specially the Robusta bean, is the richest source. An all-natural water-soluble extract of raw, decaffeinated green coffee beans is obtained by a traditional extraction method. This is important in that as much as 70 percent of chlorogenic acids can be destroyed by roasting. A high-quality, standardized extract of 400 mg has the chlorogenic content of up to six or seven cups of coffee. Yet it is free of a number of the harmful acids in coffee (cafestol and kahweol), and with only 25 % of the caffeine. Raw green coffee bean extracts also contain quinic and caffeic acid, which possess strong antioxidant power, notably limiting the oxidation of lipids (fats) in the liver. In a recent clinical study published in the journal Phytotherapie, 50 people 19-75 years old received 400 mg of green coffee bean extract for 60 days. Participants who received the green coffee bean extract lost 5.7 percent of their initial weight, equivalent to a median weight loss of 11 lbs. The placebo group, which did not receive any coffee bean extract, lost only 2.8 percent of their initial weight over the same time frame. Has anyone here tried an all natural weight loss product such as Green-Fu?
