Can you smell it? The Christmas party season is coming and we all want to fit into our festive dress, look slimmer at the family gathering and start the winter month healthier, without those extra pounds.
Can this mission be made possible by using only pure green coffee beans extract?
A recent study (done by the American Chemical Society) found striking new evidence that green, or unroasted, coffee beans can help you lose up to 17 pounds in 22 weeks, without any side effects. If my math is correct, I should be able to lose about 10 pounds in the 15 weeks left before Christmas!
The real internet buzz about raw coffee beans started after Dr. Oz, on his popular TV show, claimed that ” Green coffee bean extract helps speed weight loss up to 2 pounds a week”. But how exactly does it work and is it safe for everyone?
Green Coffee Beans Extract for Weight Loss
Green coffee beans are raw, unroasted coffee beans. The active ingredient is called chlorogenic acid. This ingredient completely disappears when the beans are roasted and dried. This is why you can’t get the same weight loss effect from “regular” roasted coffee.
Studies have provided evidence that chlorogenic acid stops the liver from releasing glucose into the body. In this way, the body is forced to consume glucose that is already present in fat deposits, resulting in quicker loss of fat and weight loss.
There has also been some suggestion that chlorogenic acid helps speed up metabolism and regulates blood pressure.
Of course, you can speed up your weight loss even more by keeping a healthy nutrition and regular exercise, but surprisingly, the people who participated in this study were all able to lose weight WITHOUT changing their eating habits and without an exercise regimen.
Green Coffee Beans Side Effects – Is the Extract Safe for Everyone?
Green coffee beans contain only 20 mg of caffeine per serving, compared to a minimum of 100 mg for a good cup of coffee. The Green coffee bean extract will not make you nervous and jittery, if you use it exactly as will be detailed below.
As with any supplement, is you have pre-existing health conditions, or you are taking medication, you have to consult with your doctor to make sure it’s safe for you. Of course don’t take it if you are pregnant or nursing.
So far no side effects have been found, but remember that the studies are at an early stage and new information may pop up in the future.
How Much, When and Which Brand of Green Coffee Beans Supplement?
There are a few important things you have to know before you start your Christmas green-coffee weight loss challenge:
- Be aware of fake pills. The green coffee extract should have no fillers, binders or artificial ingredients.
- The extract should contain at least 45 percent of the active ingredient – The chlorogenic acid.
- According to Dr. Oz, you can take an 800 mg capsule 30 minutes before eating, twice a day.
- Sometimes it takes more than 2 weeks to get results, so don’t give up after a week. Remember, the participants in the study took it for more than 10 weeks.
Where Can I Buy Green Coffee Bean Extract?
There are a few options: The first and my favorite option is to order it online, because the prices are usually lower.
I have found a few brands that meet the above standards that Dr. Oz recommended to look for:
1. Green Coffee Bean MAX – This popular brand one has the 800 mg capsules, it has no fillers and artificial ingredients and it has 50 percent cholorogenic acid. It also has a refund policy; you can return it up to 90 days after purchasing and get your money back. Find out more about it – Right Here.
