GREEN COFFEE BEAN EXTRACT/ CHLOROGENIC ACID:
Coffee beans are actually green seeds inside a bright red berry. Roasting them turns the seeds brown and create the characteristic aroma and flavor coffee lovers crave. To create Green Coffee Bean Extract, the seeds are left unroasted. Instead they’re soaked and then concentrated to create the extract. Green coffee beans have a higher level of Chlorogenic Acid compared to regular, roasted coffee beans. The reputation of Green Coffee Bean Extract has increased in recent years due to its range of health benefits. It has won people over through its ability to ease digestion and boost weight loss efforts. Its antioxidant and weight loss benefits are mostly derived from the component extracted from it called Chlorogenic Acid. Discovered in 1932, Chlorogenic acids (CGA) represent a large family of esterified compounds present in green and roasted coffee. During roasting, CGA's slowly decompose to form caffeic and quinic acid with about 50% of the original CGA being destroyed in a medium roast. Chlorogenic Acid is known as an antioxidant compound which plays vital roles in many biological processes.
Green coffee beans are naturally green. When they are roasted they turn brown. Before they are roasted, Green coffee is rich in Chlorogenic acid. Scientists have found that if a persons consumes a certain amount of Green Coffee daily before meals they could lose upto 25% of their body fat and have less of an appearance of cellulite.
Chlorogenic acid working with the natural caffeine work together to help the person reduce weight and diminish the look of cellulite. It is known to boost metabolism but will not cause the jittery feelings associated with caffeine.
However you just can’t eat Green Coffee because of its bitter taste. You need a Green Coffee Supplement that is filled with plenty of Chlorogenic Acid for the supplement to be effective. At a minimum 45% Chlorogenic Acid is recommended.
