Green coffee beans are basically raw and unroasted coffee seeds (beans) of Coffee fruits. It is observed that the roasting process of coffee beans actually reduces the amount of the chemical chlorogenic acid. Since the beans are unroasted, so they have a higher level of chlorogenic acid as compared to the regular coffee beans. Now, what is this Chlorogenic acid? So, this actually has health benefits.
Now, it has become quite popular when it comes to weight loss. It is actually believed that it burns fat pretty fast.
Here are some wonderful health benefits of green coffee:
Research shows that obese adults who take a specific green coffee extract (Svetol, Naturex) five times daily for 8 – 12 weeks, (either alone or together with the regular coffee product Coffee Slender; Med-Eq Ltd., Tonsberg, Norway), can lose an average of 2.5 to 3.7 kg more weight as compared to those who take regular coffee by itself.
For weight loss, chlorogenic acid present in the green coffee is thought to affect how the body handles the blood sugar and metabolism. And this is something which actually affects your weight.
High Blood Pressure:
Research suggests that if someone takes the coffee extracts daily (that contains 50 mg to 140 mg of chlorogenic acids) for 4 – 12 weeks, they can reduce blood pressure. Systolic blood pressure (the top number) is reduced by 5 mmHg to 10 mmHg. Diastolic blood pressure (the bottom number) is reduced by 3 mmHg to 7 mmHg. Well, that’s what the research had to say.
Diabetes, Alzheimer’s and Bacterial infections are some of the other diseases that can be cured by green coffee beans.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Green coffee beans are coffee beans that have not yet been roasted. These coffee beans contain a higher amount of the chemical chlorogenic acid. This chemical is thought to have health benefits. For high blood pressure, it may affect blood vessels so that blood pressure is reduced.
