New Brunswick, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/22/2013 -- There has been substantial public interest in recent months about chlorogenic acid, an antioxidant present in pure green coffee bean extract supplements, as a result of a pilot research study which demonstrated significant weight loss results from these nutritional products. Go here for detailed background information about green coffee and the weight loss research study http://healthfoodpost.com/green-coffee-extract/
But what is chlorogenic acid and is it also present in green tea? Chlorogenic acid was discovered in 1932. Raw coffee beans have the highest concentration of chlorogenic acid of any species of plant. Green tea, on the other hand, is not indicated as a good source of chlorogenic acid. Chlorogenic acid is present in raw pure green coffee bean extract but is mostly destroyed during the coffee roasting process, so the roasted coffee most people drink each morning will probably not be much help for weight loss. Although both coffee and tea have very high levels of antioxidants, green coffee beans contains high levels of the antioxidant chlorogenic acid, while green tea does not. So, since the green coffee weight loss pilot study attributed its success to chlorogenic acid, green coffee would be a viable choice as a weight loss aid but green tea would not be a good choice. The weight loss success in the pilot study is believed due to the effect chlorogenic acid in raw green coffee beans on glucose in the bloodstream, according to Dr. Joe Vinson, who headed the study.
There is some confusion and misinformation about whether one type of raw coffee bean is better than the other for chlorogenic acid. Both Robusta coffee beans and Arabica coffee beans have high levels of chlorogenic acid. Many nutritional supplement companies suggest that Arabica coffee beans are better for chlorogenic acid than Robusta coffee, but research indicates the opposite is true. Climate and other environmental factors influence the level of chlorogenic acid in coffee beans, so Robusta coffee beans, which are grown in harsher climates than Arabica, have as much as double the concentrations of chlorogenic acid as Ararbica. The higher concentrations of chlorogenic acid in Robusta coffee beans may also explain the more bitter, harsher taste in coffee made from roasted Robusta beans.
