Green Coffee Review


Raw Organic Goji Berries from Live Superfoods

Good morning again from Best of Health:

Benefits of green coffee

Benefits of green coffee

Today I was looking around on the web and green coffee kept coming up. Interesting topic I thought. I know Dr Oz has done a program on the subject and done some research. He studied more than 100 women and ran the experiment for two weeks. The results- Women taking the green coffee bean extract lost around 2 pound (907g) , the women taking an inactive pill only lost 1 pound (453g).

Mmmm, why so close? All of the participants kept themselves a food journal, which probably made both groups more aware of what they were eating those weeks, “More aware of their diet”. But after this Dr oz suggestion for the intake of the green coffee bean extract was 400 milligrams, 3 times a day, which is a little higher than the high dose in an Indian study.

Although there seems to be no side effects from taking the extracts, there have been no long term studies on safety done yet. They also do not take into consideration people suffering from illness such as, heart disease, or those taking prescribed medication.

Try to always buy a reputable brand such as GCA (green coffee antioxidant) or Svetol with at least 45% chlorogenic acid. Avoid brands with lots of filters or artificial ingredients.

Some of the Benefits of green coffee are:

  • Weight Loss – green coffee has been proven to be effective for weight loss. ( Study by Oryza Oil & Fat chemical co. Ltd, Japan)
  • Diabetes – Consumption of green coffee can also be beneficial for diabetes. (Study at Helwan university in Cairo, Published in the ” Journal of American Science” revealed the consumption of green tea decreased blood glucose levels and insulin in diabetic rats. Research was on coffee and tea in relation to the chlorogenic acid content in both green coffee and green tea.

So maybe enjoy a cup of green coffee for something different or for the health benefits, maybe lose some weight? I know I love a cup of green tea, and there are many known benefits to that. Enjoy.

Where do you get your protein?

This is a question I get asked all of the time. If you don’t eat meat you can’t be getting your protein, they say. I get tired of trying to explain this over and over, and then they still don’t believe you. Anyway I came across this video and this guy really explains this so well I thought I would post this for everyone to see. Great explanation I thought.
