Green Coffee Bean Extract – The Facts That Matter

By Cammie Ciavardini
For many people, having a cup of coffee in the morning is a way to jumpstart their day, but did you know that there is a type of coffee that can also help you lose weight? If you take coffee beans that have not been roasted, what you get is green coffee beans. Green coffee bean extract has received much popularity as a weight-loss supplement after it was mentioned by Dr. Oz in his show.

So what makes green coffee bean extract so special compared with its regular counterpart? The thing that makes it special is its high amount of the substance called chlorogenic acid. Regular coffee beans have little to no chlorogenic acid particularly because of the roasting process it undergoes. Green coffee beans are extracted in its raw form and several tests show that it is very capable of weight reduction.

You will be able to find many weight-loss supplements in the market today that have been made with green coffee bean extract. With the help of chlorogenic acid, the absorption of glucose into bloodstream is slowed down and this causes fat absorption to be minimized. Before you purchase a supplement, make sure that you see either GCA (green coffee antioxidant) or Svetol listed in the label.

The study conducted by Dr. Oz on green coffee extract made use of people who took supplements containing at least 45% chlorogenic acid. It is not known whether the efficacy would be the same if something below 45% is to be used. Dosage can be anywhere from 200mg to 800mg. As for the Dr. Oz study, a dosage of 400mg was used and it was taken for a total of 3 times a day.

Since there are many green coffee extract supplements being sold out there, one thing you should look at carefully is the ingredients list. Make sure that it does not contain any kind of fillers or binders. If a product does not have any ingredients list, you’d best stay away from it. If by any chance you find any unfamiliar ingredient, don’t hesitate to contact the manufacturer to get clarifications about it.

To be sure you’re buying quality products, make it a point to buy only from reputable manufacturers. It would be ideal to go with manufacturers who are really in the business of supplements and that they have earned a good name from the quality of their products. Make sure that you take note of factors such as customer reviews, price, and features before you purchase a supplement.

When it comes to the side effects, it would be safe to assume that taking green coffee bean extract as intended would not yield any negative side effects. However, keep in mind that there is still some amount of caffeine in it and it is still possible to suffer some side effects if misused. Weight-loss supplements like this are generally not recommended for pregnant women and those with serious health problems.

As a final word, before you proceed with purchasing supplements made from green coffee bean extract, you should still aim to have a healthy lifestyle. This means that you should still not ignore having a balanced diet and adequate exercise. Of course you might lose weight without those, but the best way to lose weight and keep it off is if you eat quality food and burn those extra calories.
