Green Coffee refers to the raw or unroasted seeds (beans) of Coffea fruits. One of the components of green coffee bean is chlorogenic acid, which has been shown to inhibit an enzyme that promotes the formation of glucose (sugar) in the liver.
Chlorogenic acid may also be the source of coffee’s anti-obesity effects. Various studies have suggested that chlorogenic acid slows absorption of fat from food intake and also activates metabolism of extra fat. Traditional brewed coffee does not serve as a good source of chlorogenic acid. Green Coffee beans remain one of the best natural sources of chlorogenic acid.
The most recent study on green coffee adults supplemented with green coffee bean extract lost an average of almost 18 pounds in 12 weeks.*
