Its doctor Lindsey here and I would like to talk a little today about a certain natural ingredient that’s been getting a lot of media attention and it is the green coffee bean. There is a lot of hype going on about this little small green bean and I want to kinda get to the bottom of it and find out what’s true and what’s not true.
So normally I am against weight loss supplements because I’ve seen over the past 20 years a lot of them come and go. Green coffee bean is been getting a lot of media attention because there was a study done recently and it was presented in San Diego with the American Chemical Society which is one of the largest scientific conferences in the world. Here is what the study show:
It showed that participants who took green coffee bean extract lost a total of 17 pounds each. They also lost 10.5% of their total body weight and (this is the one that shocked me) they lost 17% of their body fat. The most interesting part of this clinical trial that was done on humans not rats or monkeys is that there were absolutely zero side effects. Now to a nutritionist this is especially important.
Let’s take a look at this green coffee bean….
How Does Green Coffee Bean Extract Work?
Green coffee bean is what we call in the natural health world a triple threat and it has an active compound and it is called chlorogenic acid and this is critical it’s natural it’s healthy and it is so so important. Now the first mechanism of action is that it works by inhibiting the absorption and utilization of glucose also know as sugar in the blood stream. No sugar in the blood stream means no build up of fat in the body because sugar turns to fat in the body when it is not important.
Number two is that it helps to boost our metabolism. What is our metabolism? It is the body ability to burn the fuel that we put in our body, how efficiently we are burning the fuel.
And number three really really important is that it enhances the burning of fat in the liver. The liver is responsible for processing all of the fat that we put in our body and this chlorogenic acid helps to enhance the metabolism of fat in the liver.
When you combine all three of these actions together you get amazing natural compound that is basically getting the body to do what the body supposed to do on its own which metabolize sugar metabolize fat and lose weight naturally.
Let me explain how this works, if you take a car or train and you imagine that they are not metabolizing their fuel the coal or the gasoline very well, you are gona get a lot of smoke, you are gona get a lot of inefficiency, the car or the train are not going to work very well. On the other hand if you take a high performance vehicle or you take a high performance train like a bullet train that works at maximum efficiency and maximum capacity that train is burning its fuel.
That’s what is happening in our body the green coffee bean extract mainly the chlorogenic acid helps to enhance helps to speed up helps to make our body more efficient in burning its fuel.
Doesn’t Regular Coffee Do The Same Thing?
The answer is absolutely no, this is a really really important fact. So brown coffee beans have been dried and roasted and so they have a different smell, they have a different flavor and they have removed all of the chlorogenic acid when you dry roast it which is 470 – 480 F degrees. You basically remove you basically destroy all of the chlorogenic acid.
Green coffee beans on the other hand have a very different smell a very different flavor and they have 50% of the entire bean is chlorogenic acid because it hasn’t been heated it hasn’t been destroyed. This is really important, the green coffee bean is bitter and I have been saying for over 2 decades bitter is better and this is another perfect example.
Are These Results Typical?
The answer is yes, it is amazing but the answer is yes, these results are typical results. And it is because of the mechanism of action, but I always try to get people to make sure that they are drinking enough water because this type of product being so bitter you to really drink a lot of water try to go 10 to 12 glasses of water a day. Also as a nutritionist I am always going to recommend exercise. Even though all of the results are happening without exercise you just can’t be exercising, it’s so important for the entire body.
Another really important thing is that people always say is it due to the caffeine. The answer is absolutely no. One serving of green coffee bean capsules 2 capsules has about 23 to 24 milligrams of caffeine in it, so if you compare that to a regular cup of your coffee that would have between 100 and 400 milligrams of caffeine in it. So no it’s not because of the caffeine.
As a matter of this is not a hard stimulate it is not like ephedra it is not like a caffeine pill it is not like anything that is going to make your body nervous or have a harsh effect or keep you up at night or make anxious.
A matter of fact in a study it showed that the average person actually all of the participants reduced their heart beat by approximately 2 beats per minute, now that’s amazing. Because it speeding up metabolism yet it’s lowering the heart beat so it’s not a stimulant and no it doesn’t cause these great results because of caffeine it has a completely different mechanism of action.
Where Do I Find It?
It is pretty easy you just go to your web browser and type in pure green coffee bean or pure green coffee bean extract a lot of different companies and products will pop up. You can also find it at a health food store but you want to look out for a couple of things, there are few really important things to remember. So:
- Please make sure that the product is pure, read the label.
- Make sure that there are no other ingredients added, no steroids, no silica, no cellulose, so look on the other ingredients it should say no other ingredients.
- Make that it is 400 mg capsules, you want to make sure that each capsule is 400 mg and you want to take 2 before every meal, 30 minutes before every single meal and you want to take it with a large glass of water. The large glass of water is important because green coffee bean extract is very very very bitter so you need that full glass of water.
- The next important tip is to make sure that it is in vegetarian capsules.
So go to google and type in “green coffee bean” and you will be fine.
Dr. Lindsey’s Final Thoughts:
So as a nutritionist I understand that there is no miracle weight loss pill or miracle weight loss ingredient it is basically about getting your body to do the job that it is supposed to do on its own. Green coffee bean extract just so happens to help that process along naturally with no side effects.
