It can be difficult keeping track of all the exciting nutritional discoveries that can help you achieve optimal health. Green coffee beans have gotten a lot of press lately and for good reason. Experts have proven the chlorogenic acid found in the unroasted coffee beans of the Coffea Arabica plant contain ten times more polyphenol antioxidants than green tea. Green coffee beans can deliver a holistic upgrade to your health within 12 weeks, but they also come with a warning: caffeine is a stimulant. Individuals with cardiovascular disease, diabetes, or anxiety should consult their doctor before taking green coffee beans. One famous television doctor claimed green coffee beans could help you lose weight without diet or exercise. While this statement might be a stretch, there's a lot the green coffee bean can do!
A Nordic pharmaceutical company studied the effects of green coffee beans on obese individuals. What they discovered isn't the pie-in-the-sky claims of an unnamed television doctor, but they did learn something exciting. Green coffee beans, due to their high chlorogenic acid content, raise the basal metabolic rate. The basal metabolic rate (BMR) is responsible for how quickly your body processes nutrients and stores deposits of glucose and fat.
A high BMR is helpful because a glucose deficiency burns fat cells to supply the body's need for glucose, thereby reducing extra weight and helping get rid of excess fat. In 2016, another study in South Korea examined the effects of green coffee beans in obese mice. The Asian Pacific Journal of Tropical Medicine concluded green coffee beans, "significantly decreased body weight gain, liver weight, and white adipose tissue weights." The test also showed ingredients in the beans regulated hormones such as adiponectin and leptin.
