Study Shows Chlorogenic Acid from Raw Green Coffee Beans Helps Burn Fat

Repost This

New Brunswick, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/19/2013 -- A small pilot research study examining the efficacy and safety of green coffee beans extract for weight loss produced significant weight loss among participants and no adverse side effects. The study took place over twenty-two weeks on overweight participants. Go here for more detailed information

A chemist, Dr. Joe Vinson from the University of Scranton in Scranton PA led the study. In the Vinson pilot study, 16 overweight participants were given different doses of a brand of green coffee bean extract supplements. There was a low dose group tested and a higher dose group. All participants lost weight with the average weight loss being 17.5 pounds per person. Vinson says a larger study is being planned.

Vinson indicated the effect of a component of green coffee extract on blood glucose levels is likely the most important factor explaining the weight loss in the study. That component is called chlorogenic acid. Chlorogenic acid is present is raw coffee beans but not in roasted coffee beans. Chlorogenic acid is an antioxidant. There is more chlorogenic acid in raw coffee beans than any other plant species. But once raw coffee beans are roasted on the path to ultimately becoming brewed coffee, the chlorogenic acid is dissipated. The roasting process destroys the chlorogenic acid. Coffee beans are roasted at between 370 degrees and 470 degrees.

So drinking coffee from roasted coffee beans would probably have no impact on weight loss. And making coffee from green coffee beans would have a bitter, unpalatable taste. So, supplements with extracts from raw coffee beans are the more popular choice for getting chlorogenic acid.
