To get some perspective on these weight loss supplement wars, here is a bit of background. Green coffee extract took off like wildfire in the spring of 2012 after the results of a placebo controlled clinical study were made public. The results showed the green coffee study participants achieved dramatic weight loss success with no adverse side effects reported. Those getting the real green coffee extract lost over 17 pounds in 22 weeks. They also lost 16% in body fat. The results were attributed to the effect of the antioxidant chlorogenic acid present in green, or raw, coffee beans.

Regarding red raspberry ketones, there have been some studies that were allegedly on mice that have been discussed online, but no actual clinical studies have been done on humans. Despite this, a popular TV celebrity doctor and guest dietitian gave enthusiastic endorsements to raspberry ketones as a fat burning substance and it remains a popular product.

So, both substances have received enthusiastic recommendations from respected TV personalities but only one substance has, at this point in time, human clinical trial evidence supporting its' purported weight loss efficacy. It should be noted that more research needs to be done. In the case of green coffee extract, one successful human pilot study has been done and a larger study is being planned to attempt to confirm the initial successful results. offers a number of nutritional supplements including green coffee extracts and raspberry ketones. The featured green coffee product is the popular Perfect Green Coffee pure extract supplement. Perfect Green Coffee is 100% pure and contains a guaranteed minimum 50% chlorogenic acid. Chlorogenic acid is the antioxidant contained in raw coffee beans that is believed to be responsible for the successful weight loss results in the pilot human study. Some competing products contain only 42% to 45% chlorogenic acid, and some products contain much less.
