This morning I got to work and I was incredibly exhausted. I have been having problems to sleep for a couple of days and on top of that it was Monday… So I started talking to a friend and he was telling me all about this miracle thing he has been drinking to boost energy and lose body fat, so I was like… What is this thing you talk about so much? And he says.. Green Coffee. Green Coffee? Yes, organic green coffee. So he started to tell me all these stuff and I couldn’t believe it was the first time I was hearing from this miracle worker so I did my research.
Things to know about GREEN COFFEE:
Green coffee beans are coffee beans that have not yet been roasted.
How does it work?
Green coffee beans contain a higher amount of the chemical chlorogenic acid. This chemical is thought to have health benefits. For high blood pressure it might affect blood vessels so that blood pressure is reduced.
For weight loss, chlorogenic acid in green coffee is thought to affect how the body handles blood sugar and metabolism.
- High blood pressure (hypertension). Some research shows that people with mild high blood pressure who take a specific green coffee extract (Svetol, Naturex) 93 mg daily or 185 mg daily have reduced blood pressure after 28 days of treatment. Other studies evaluating the effects of a different green coffee extract or a certain component of green coffee found similar results.
- Weight loss. Some research shows that taking green coffee extract (Svetol, Naturex) 80-200 mg daily might cause modest weight loss over a period of 12 weeks
I found out this research was featured in DR. OZ Website stating they did a study with women and they showed weight loss.
I will be getting some of this organic green coffee and I will keep you posted on the results.
