What is a Green Coffee Bean Extract?
A green coffee bean is an unroasted, dried, natural coffee bean. Roasting coffee transforms the chemical and physical properties of green coffee beans, turning them into common coffee products. The roasting process produces the characteristic flavour of coffee as the green coffee beans change in colour, taste, smell and density. Roasting also makes the coffee bean more unstable. As a result, it can become rancid easily. Unroasted green coffee bean extract is a new ingredient on the market. It has strong anti-oxidant properties, similar to other natural anti-oxidants like green tea and grape seed extract.
Herbal Slim Green Coffee Bean Extract and Weight Loss
Green coffee bean extract has also been found to promote weight loss. This is due to its natural chemical compounds, caffeine and chlorogenic acid. The caffeine releases the fat from the body, while the chlorogenic acid assists the body to process more fat. The caffeic acids from green coffee bean extract also boost weight loss by blocking glucose absorption. Around 20% to 50% of natural green coffee bean extract which is used in Herbal Slim is chlorogenic acid, which is known for its weight loss effects. In addition, Herbal Slim uses the coffee beans from Arabic coffee plant, which is higher in quality and contains more chlorogenic acid that Robusta, the other coffee plant species.
Research on the Weight Loss Effect of Green Coffee Bean Extract:
The study was conducted to examine the efficacy and safety of green coffee extracts. Subjects received high-doses of extracts (1050mg), low-dose extracts (700mg), or placebo in separate six-week periods.
Significant reductions were observed in body weight, body mass index and body fat percentage, without any significant changes to diet over the course of the study. Also, the participants who consumed higher doses of green coffee bean extract lost more weight.
Are there any side effects?
Because green coffee beans have not been heated, they don't produce cafestol. Cafestol is responsible for the negative effects of coffee (as a stimulant). In addition, Herbal Slim Green Coffee Extract contains concentrated natural coffee extracts and caffeine. Therefore, individuals who are sensitive to caffeine, pregnant or breastfeeding should not take the product. Also, acid from coffee beans decrease when they are roasted. Unroasted, green coffee beans with higher acidity may cause stomach trouble when they are not taken with food. If problems occur, stop taking the product or reduce dosage.
