Coffee = Weight loss? Sounds like a dream come true. Deal me in! Green coffee bean extract has become all the rage since Dr. Oz mentioned it on his show as a fat burner and weight loss aide. A few small studies have shown numerous benefits including reduction of high blood pressure and fat loss. Some companies even boast that green coffee beans reduce the risk of diabetes and increase your energy. Big claims for these little beans!
Green coffee beans are natural coffee beans that have not been roasted. The beans retain chlorogenic acid that would otherwise be lost in the roasting process used to make your favorite cup of morning Joe. Chlorogenic acid helps to regulate the glucose levels in your body, allowing your metabolism to work efficiently and burn fat around the clock. When your body is working well, all weight loss efforts will be magnified. Green coffee bean extract claims to help you lose weight even if you make no changes to your regular diet and work out routines. Who wouldn’t want to try it?
I guess the question would be: Does it really work? The jury is still out on this one. The reviews from many people posting on the internet are positive and the endorsement from Dr. Oz surely skyrocketed this product into homes across the country, but does it really burn fat? The company producing and marketing this product for weight loss also produced the research study evaluating the effectiveness of the product. Hmmm, sounds a little sketchy to me. More studies would be needed to accurately determine if this product is as wonderful as it seems to be.
Since this is a natural product with few reported side effects and a month’s worth of green coffee bean extract is relatively inexpensive, try it and make your own decision. If you do try it, be sure to read your labels and buy from a trusted source. There are already companies competing for your business. Beware the companies offering low prices for inferior products! The larger the percentage of green coffee extract in the supplement you choose, the better. Compare several brands or go directly to the original source for the best results.
Only time will tell if green coffee beans are as effective as their manufacturers claim them to be. If they are proven effective, they could be used to combat several diseases in a simple and non invasive manner. Let me know if you have tried green coffee extract. I would love to know your results.
