Understanding The Benefits Of Green Coffee Bean Extract
The potential health benefits of taking Green Coffee Bean extract.
Many people looking to find out more about this bean and its potential advantages on the body will be doing so because of the claims that it could the latest weight loss sensation. While the high levels of antioxidants and positive comparisons against current favourites such as grape seed extract are favourable, there is not yet enough convincing evidence to substantiate these claims. There were, for example, seemingly significant results in a study of overweight adults by University of Scranton but the group used was so small that the results are not particularly conclusive.
Using it as a weight loss supplement may be questionable but there are definite potential health benefits due to the chemical make-up of the extract and processes used. When these beans are used in a way that does not involve roasting, the levels of these antioxidants and the useful chlorogenic acid increase and this means a greater chance of neutralising free radicals, regulating metabolism, stabilising blood sugar levels and allegedly improving the effectiveness of painkillers for migraines.
What forms of Green Coffee Bean extract are available
The best method to use to take this extract can depend upon which of the above benefits you are looking for. If your goal in using Green Coffee Beans is purely for weight loss then taking a basic supplement as part of a larger regime is the preferred form. These capsules are simple pills that are standardised to contain 30-50% of the acid for a high level of antioxidants.
An alternative way to enjoy the extract for general health and as a coffee alternative is to try a drink and substitute the beans. One particular coffee store is using this idea and making the process a little more fun by providing the ingredient in a new range. Promoted as a being both a beneficial product for health and a refreshing alternative for people who are not keen on the regular taste of coffee, this could be a clever marketing strategy that others will soon follow.
