|Pure Green Coffee Bean Extract By Pure Health|
Published on the Diabetes, Metabolic Syndrome and Obesity: Targets and Therapy earlier this year, the study followed 16 individuals (8 males and 8 females) aged 22–46 who supplemented pure green coffee bean extract. The subjects, who all have normal functioning thyroid glands and are non-diabetic and non-hypertensive, took the supplement for 22 weeks.
After the course of the study, the participants, who were classified as overweight before the program, averaged slightly over an 8 kg weight loss which was more than 10% of their body weight and now in the normal BMI category. There were no side effects that were reported by the subjects as well.
The researchers of the study said their limitations were the small sample size and the short washout periods between arms but explained that "we do not believe sample size to have been a problem, given the linear crossover design of the study."
Pure green coffee bean's active component called chlorogenic acid is being attributed with the subjects' weight-loss. The natural compound is believed to work by slowing down the release of glucose into the body after meals while at the same time boosting metabolism. These two mechanisms work together to inhibit the absorption of fat and eliminate weight gain.
Chlorogenic acid is not present in aromatic roasted familiar version of brown coffee since it is removed during the roasting process (which is done at over 400 degrees Fahrenheit) as the acid is extremely bitter.
The green coffee bean supplement also has lower caffeine than a cup of coffee. It has only around 20 mg of caffeine per serving compared to 100 mg per cup of coffee.
In some studies, the bean has also shown to help lower blood pressure – while still boosting metabolism. FULL STORY...
