Repost This

New Brunswick, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/20/2013 -- There is always a steady stream of hype surrounding nutritional supplements purported to help with weight loss. And usually it is best to run the other way when the next alleged weight loss miracle hits the market. But, in the case of pure green coffee beans there is actually some real science behind the hype, causing many people to take a closer look. Background information can be found by clicking here

In addition to attracting the interest of nutritional supplement companies, green coffee has also received an enthusiastic recommendation by at popular celebrity TV host who is also a respected doctor. Green coffee contains chlorogenic acid. It is hypothesized by researchers who ran a study on green coffee for weight loss that the chlorogenic acid contained in raw green coffee beans has a positive effect on blood sugar levels, which in turn positively impacts weight loss and fat metabolism.

A widely publicized study on green coffee bean extract supplementation on overweight individuals produced impressive results. The study results were published in the Diabetes, Metabolic Syndrome and Obesity Journal and also discussed in a press conference. The research was headed by Dr. Joe Vinson from the University of Scranton in Scranton, PA The researchers followed a group of 16 adults who were given green coffee extract containing chlorogenic acid, for 22 weeks. The study participants were given different doses of a green coffee extract. Over the course of the study, the participants lost an average of over 17 pounds each.

So, what is it about green coffee beans that helped people in this pilot study lose weight? According to Dr. Vinson in his press conference, the chlorogenic acid in raw coffee beans has a impact on glucose levels in the human blood stream, which he suggested affects fat metabolism in a positive way. Dr. Vinson stressed that not only did green coffee extract help with weight loss with every participant, but also it did so with no reported adverse side effects by any of the study participants. Vinson pointed out that prescription drugs, which have been tried for weight loss have produced negative side effects, with some of the side effects being serious.

Some consumers have questioned whether the same weight loss benefits can be achieved by drinking roasted coffee, as has been achieved from taking green coffee supplements. Unfortunately, the answer is probably no. That is because, as far as chlorogenic acid is concerned, when raw green coffee beans are roasted, the high temperatures required in the coffee roasting process destroys most of the chlorogenic acid. So, while some recent research has indicated a number of possible health benefits from roasted coffee, unfortunately weight loss is not one of those benefits. The heat used to roast raw coffee beans and ultimately create a beverage with a pleasant coffee aroma and taste so many people enjoy, also destroys the beneficial antioxidant, chlorogenic acid. And, it should be noted that drinking a beverage made from raw coffee beans would not be palatable for most people since raw coffee beans would produce an bitter beverage without much flavor.

Raw coffee beans have the highest known chlorogenic acid content of any plant species. Many observers agree that an effective green coffee supplement should be pure, meaning free of any unnecessary additives, and should contain a chlorogenic acid content of at least 42%.
