Before we get into how green coffee actually helps in weight loss, it is important to realize that this is only the case for a green coffee extract with a standard of purity, grade and dose mentioned in the clinical studies. (50% Chlorogenic Acid® Green Coffee is the only extract used in the clinical study mentioned here)
Green Coffee Ultra™ uses 50% Chlorogenic Acid, the highest quality grade Green Coffee Bean Extract available. Our doctors and researchers sourced out the purest green coffee with the highest real chlorogenic acid percentage (50%) to ensure that you get the maximum weight loss results. And, we have 60 800mg capsules which is a full months supply. Most manufacturers provide only 60 capsules of 400mgs each, which is only a 15 day supply.
OK, let's get right into it. The truth is that it's not the caffeine in green coffee that helps with weight loss as many might think. In fact green coffee has only 20mg of caffeine per serving, compared to a cup of coffee which has over 100mg. The key to weight loss is a very important active compound called Chlorogenic Acid found inside green coffee beans. Chlorogenic Acid has the amazing effect of inhibiting the release of glucose in the body while increasing metabolism or fat burning in the liver. These two actions work together to inhibit the absorption of fat and stop weight gain.
Most people get almost all of their "energy" from the glucose that carbohydrates provide. There are several ways in which our bodies utilize glucose:
So, basically, when the body metabolizes glucose, it stores what it needs as glycogen and then turns the rest into adipose tissue or "body fat".
But how does our body burn fat? Well, one thing to realize is that your liver is the most important fat burning organ in the body. The liver actually regulates fat metabolism by a complicated set of biochemical pathways. In addition, the liver pumps excessive fat out of the body through the bile and into the small intestines. So, what many people don't realize is that your liver is an amazing tool for keeping weight under control, since it is both a "fat burning" organ and a "fat pumping" organ.
Now that you know the two most important factors in weight gain: an excess amount of glucose and a low fat metabolism from the liver, you can see why green coffee bean extract can be effective in losing weight.
The amazing thing about a good green coffee extract is that the chlorogenic acid contained within inhibits the release of glucose in the body, basically stopping the body from storing more "body fat". And as we've learned, glucose is stored into fat if the glycogen stores are signaled as full. So, by inhibiting its release, you essentially stop it from creating more fat.
But the positive actions of the chlorogenic acid found in green coffee do not stop there. In addition, it increases metabolism in the liver. By increasing liver metabolism, it effectively helps to keep weight under control by burning fat and pumping fat away.
To be clear, you cannot get the same results from a cup of coffee than you can with a good green coffee bean extract. Why? Well, when you roast a coffee bean, you remove most of the chlorogenic acid, which as we've learned, is the key to weight loss. The green coffee beans found in Green Coffee Ultra are unroasted, unlike your morning cup of coffee, and have over 50% Chlorogenic Acid.
Overall Health: Chlorogenic Acid is a polyphenol that has been shown to neutralize several classes of carcinogenic compounds before they can cause cancer. Many polyphenols function as antioxidants.
Cardiovascular Health: Chlorogenic Acid was shown to help with the reducing plasma homocysteine levels in clinical trials. A high homocysteine concentration in blood is a major risk indicator for cardiovascular disease. In addition, by neutralizing free radicals and regenerating vitamin E, Green Coffee Beans have been shown to inhibit lipid and LDL degradation, which helps to promote optimal cardiovascular health.
Blood pressure: Chlorogenic Acid has proven to decrease blood pressure, both systolic and diastolic, in clinical studies. No side effects were shown and body mass index and pulse rate stayed the same. LDL or bad cholesterol was also inhibited due to chlorogenic acid, saving the body from damaging the arteries and accelerate atherosclerosis.
Healthy Blood Sugar Levels: Several studies showed how people taking Chlorogenic Acid were substantially less likely to get Type 2 diabetes, thus supporting healthy blood sugar levels. Additional research suggests that the effects that Chlorogenic Acid has on glucose metabolism contributed to healthy blood sugar levels.
In summary, the amazing benefits of weight control, cardiovascular health, blood pressure, healthy blood sugar levels and overall health due to the high level of chlorogenic acid found in Green Coffee Beans make this extract the ideal supplement for your weight loss and overall health.
