Green Coffee Bean Extract ~ Does It Help You Lose Weight?

Tracey has been writing online for over 10 years. She also is a graphical artist for social media sites. She loves writing about home life!


Green Coffee Bean Extract - Good For You and Your Weight Too !

A recent episode of a popular doctor's TV talk show featured Lindsey Duncan, ND, CN speaking on the benefits of green coffee bean extract. Within minutes the Internet was buzzing with million of people asking where they could find this amazing product.

Lindsay is an alternative health specialist and celebrity nutritionist with more than 28 years of clinical experience. He normally takes the high road and recommends that the best road to get rid of excess pounds is to eat a healthy, nutritious, well-balanced diet and start an exercise program

But recent research on the benefits of green coffee bean extract has left him singing a different tune. For the first time both of these knowledgeable doctors are endorsing a dietary supplement to help increase the number of pounds lost without changing your regular routine.

With only 20 mg of caffeine per serving, compared to a minimum of 100 mg for a good cup of coffee, green coffee bean extract doesn't work by making you nervous and jittery, like roasted coffee or other caffeine based diet aids. Rather, the active ingredient, chlorogenic acid, works to inhibit the release of glucose in the body and increases the metabolic process in the liver.

Can you get the same effect from drinking a cup of coffee? No, because roasting the coffee beans actually removes the chlorogenic acid. So green coffee bean extract must be processed before the beans are roasted, while they're still in their raw state.

Green Coffee Bean Extract Video - The Truth - and Facts to Back it Up

This is the site that they talk about in this video. It has all the information you need, and links to all the original sites regarding the medical studies, what doctors are saying about it, and the answers to any other questions you may have.

Perfect Green Coffee Bean Extract - As Seen on the Video

If you have any questions about this product, please see the video above, it has tons of information and answers most any question you might want to ask.

Perfect Green Coffee Bean is an all natural extract and has 400 mg per caplet, it has 50% chlorogennic acid and no fillers. It is the brand I take and I highly recommend it.

Health Benefits of Green Coffee Bean Extract

There are Many !

Chlorogenic acid, the key component of green coffee bean extract, is a powerful natural anitoxidant which combats free radicals in the blood stream. The affect is to slow down the aging process, and improve circulation and muscle tone.

The major anti-oxidant in green coffee bean extract, chlorogenic acid, inhibits the release of the G6P enzyme which has been shown to significantly stabilizes blood sugar levels, so diabetics can definitely benefit from taking this supplement. Diabetics can also benefit greatly from any reduction in weight that may occur from taking green coffee bean extract, as well.

That is only one of the reasons that this research is so exciting. According to studies published in the Diabetes, Metabolic Syndrome and Obesity Journal, green coffee bean extract may just be the first weight reduction product ever that actually delivers on its promises.


Does Green Coffee Bean Extract Really Help With Weight Loss

Or Is It Just Hype ?

According to a study of green coffee bean extract published in the Diabetes, Metabolic Syndrome and Obesity Journal*, over a period of just 12 weeks test subjects lost an average of 10.5% of their overall body weight and 16% of their overall body fat - all without changing their eating or exercise habits. Each and every test subject lost an average of 17 pounds over the 12 week period. And all with no side affects.

Again, the success is attributed to the natural chlorogenic acid found in the green coffee beans. Because chlorogenic acid prevents the release of glucose into the blood stream the liver the metabolism increases which causes the liver to burn more fat, faster. These two processes also work together to prevent the body from absorbing and storing fat.

Naturally, you can speed up pounds lost even more with a sensible eating program and a regular exercise routine. But what's so surprising about this research is that these individuals were able to lose the weight with no change to their eating habits, no strenuous exercise regimen and no side effects. That's a tremendous improvement over recent diet aids that have caused everything from unpredictable anal leakage to heart defects.

Have you tried Green Coffee Bean Extract? - Please tell us about your experiences with it

crystal-luh on April 30, 2014:

I have just started the first doses of the Svetol Ultimate Green Coffee and will be posting my progress. I was reading some of the comments but for myself I am doing it for 2 reasons 1: I need to lose weight and 2: I am a diabetic whose blood sugars haven't been in the normal range for about 4 years. they are always high and I am hoping that this will help regulate them some so I can use less insulin . so I will keep everyone posted on the progress

Tracey Boyer (author) from Michigan on December 31, 2013:

@eureka-gomez-35: I would not mix the two without asking a physician first. I don't know if it is recommended or not.

eureka-gomez-35 on December 30, 2013:

Hi, thank you for posting this reviews on green coffee bean extract. I am also into those supplements from Garcinia Cambogia PolarisBrand and it is such an amazing product. I would like to ask if I could still incorporate Green coffee been extract with it? Or will I just stick with my current diet pills ?I am using this product from amazon ASIN CODE of B00CMHTYWY?

Yes, I already know about having a good diet but I am just very curious about combining two effective weight loss supplements since I really needed to lose weight faster before the wedding on March. Hoping to hear good thoughts from you. I am looking forward to try it out. Thanks!

anonymous on November 22, 2013:

Thanks for your honest report on Green Coffee Bean. I'm currently taking Garcinia Cambogia and seeing positive results.

1FitnessGuru on October 21, 2013:

Natural solutions are best, I believe. What a lot of people don't realize is that all-natural herbs are actually very powerful, and it's important to be careful with them as with any substance one might choose to put in one's body.

Boyd Carter on October 16, 2013:

I have heard about green coffee bean extract in the context of antioxidants and for mediating blood sugar. From the comments preceding mine, it seems to work. Well done!

rachaelfernandes on August 28, 2013:

People have mixed reaction over green coffee beans, but me myself given a try to this and bought myself a month supply to check If this works or not. This doesn't works with your fat cutting but yes this product controlled my hunger at a very great level which was the reason for my weight loss.

anonymous on August 28, 2013:

I haven't lost any pounds but my blood sugar A1C was within acceptable range the first time in 3 years. The only thing I had done differently was drinking two glasses a day. And my energy has definitely improved -- not an energy high, but I don't fall asleep at my desk, I don't feel exhausted all the time -- that kind of improvement. I have just about completed my 3-month supply and will definitely get more.

anonymous on August 24, 2013:

@anonymous: They only have 30 pills. If taken as directed they will last about 7 days. So for a months supply it will cost about $40.

zfarley44 lm on August 22, 2013:

I enjoyed reading this article it is very informative. I once saw this same product being advertised on the Dr, Oz show. It is said to be all natural and very healthy, I have never tried it. By the looks of all the comments there are a lot of mixed comments and reviews about the product. Keep one thing in mind it is not a miracle drink and will not work on everyone the same.

danserb on August 21, 2013:

The most important thing is how your body reacts to it, and we are all different. So good luck :)

Tracey Boyer (author) from Michigan on August 08, 2013:

@anonymous: It seems to work for some, but not for others, like any other. I guess we are all different, and react differently to supplements.

anonymous on August 08, 2013:

I am on my third month and, so far, have lost 1(one!) pound. I keep on eating the same food in same amounts as before, and keep the same exercise routine.

The only thing I can say is: 'Shame on good Dr. Oz for endorsing this nonsense!". I can think of many more useful ways to spent $90.

anonymous on August 08, 2013:

@anonymous: Hi Norma. Its been a month today. How are have you done on the coffee green bean pill? Do they work or have you simply wasted your money? I'd love to know as I am seriously considering giving these a go.

I am using Regalabs, says it has a minimum of 50% chlorogenic acid. Has stopped my cravings and in fact cannot eat as much in one meal. I have lost 2 lbs in 3 days. I have an ulcer and has not affected it at all. I am early in the use of it but so far I feel it may work. I agree with most that it most likely depends on the individual.

Tracey Boyer (author) from Michigan on May 20, 2013:

@anonymous: The best way to know is to ask your doctor.

anonymous on March 25, 2013:

Yes I have been on this Green Coffee Extract for 4 weeks now and I have kept a food diary of mostly 1500 calories daily and around 40-50 carbs. So far I am losing about 2.04 lbs a week. I am taking 400 mg at my 2 biggest meals which are breakfast and dinner, and included in my diet is a snack whenever I am a bit hungry. So far I can highly recommend this produce. I bought my extract at my local "The Vitamin Shoppe",

After a month I lost about 3 lbs. but I was eating a lot more. The thing I really noticed was I lost a lot of inches around my hips and stomach area. I now have loose folds of skin from the loss of fat. Make sure you get the right kind of coffee beans with 50 percent choleric acid.

anonymous on February 13, 2013:

@anonymous: I too work out for 30mins a day and take the green coffee and raspberry ketone pills and haven't lost much at all. Just one pound. Which one did you buy and where did you buy them from?

UniversalCats on February 04, 2013:

Not a lover of coffee but will try! Thanks!

anonymous on February 02, 2013:

I undrstand you need to watch for bad products. I tried Pure Health 800mg (2 pills) 2 times a day. Lost 5 lbs in a week with minimal effort. Never happened to me before!..My diabetic husband tried 400mg at dinner and his glucose was great the next morning. We're SOLD! me motivated to diet and exercise! Just watch your brands and their reputations!

anonymous on February 01, 2013:

@anonymous: It works, my coworkers by the generic brand in Walmart it 6.98 it works best with the raspberry keytones for 4.98 make sure it has svetol in the coffee bean. They have already lost up to 8 pounds in 3weeks. I try a different brand but I work out a lot I'm not sure which is slimming me!

anonymous on January 30, 2013:

I found pure raw coffee beans which I grind in my little home grinder (like a tablespoon) and

just boil it up in about 8 oz of water and drink it as is, or with a little mint /cinnamon and stivia in it..

its good and the real bean coffee drink does help with my appetite.. I can go through the day and actually

forced myself to eat mid day cause I felt its not right to not eat anything..

@anonymous: Which brand did you take?

anonymous on January 20, 2013:

@anonymous: I just started this today I hope it works for me I also go to the gym I do treadmi and weights good luck

anonymous on January 17, 2013:

@anonymous: What brand and how much are you taking?

anonymous on January 16, 2013:

@anonymous: I am a diabetic and since I started taking this I have been able to go off insulin shots. I monitored a lot because mixing the pill and insulin gave me lows. I have had no side effects and have been on them for about 2 months now. Be careful, talk to you doctor but for me it worked. As far as caffeine goes I have never heard of that but I am an avid diet coke drinker so maybe I don't see the effects. Either way green coffee bean has little caffeine in it. My theory was why pump myself with weight gaining insulin when I could use the green bean instead. For the record however the weight lost hasn't really happened but I am on another med that may cause weight gain so maybe they are balancing out :)

anonymous on January 16, 2013:

I tried it for 6 weeks with absolutely no results.

anonymous on January 16, 2013:

@anonymous: Hey, I am interested in this product and I am wondering if you have noticed any change in your weight yet. Does this work?

anonymous on January 15, 2013:

@anonymous: take 800 mg twice a day, half an hour before your largest meals. I take it before breakfast and lunch.

anonymous on January 08, 2013:

Does anyone know how much of this stuff is too much? The brand that I purchased says to take two with a full glass of water before a meal. I've been trying to eat more smaller meals throughout the day instead of 3 larger ones, and want to make sure I'm not taking too much.

anonymous on January 08, 2013:

@anonymous: What brand could you give me a link anyone

Metabolism Diet on January 07, 2013:

No, I have not tried this latest magic pill but I have seen this product all over the Internet and cable TV. I'm glad you mention in the above video that this product should be used in conjunction with a healthy diet and exercise program.

Green coffee extract is NOT safe for diabetics. Caffeine can alter blood sugar levels suddenly. Diabetics should not use caffeine. Check WebMd, Canadian or American Diabetic Associations etc.
