Amid the hype, sales blurb and advertising, there is more than a coffee grain of truth in the claims and assertions. No matter what medic, layman or dieticians have to say on the subject, the equation for weight loss is really very simple. Although there are some, like Atkins, for instance, who have made human metabolism a science worthy of a triple PhD, their modus operandi doesn't work for everyone. Indeed, the high protein, low carbs diet can put pounds on with some people.
So, why should a weight loss using green coffee extract be any better than anything else that's been presented to an overweight western world? The reason is very simple. The chemistry unfolded by the green coffee pundits actually does produce weight loss in every public and private research model they've tried.
So, how does it work? The active ingredient, as the advertisers used to refer to the central plank to their pitch, is chlorogenic acid or acids. Some extract processors and pill producers major on just some - or one - of these acids and put it in a bottle. The acids abound in the unroasted coffee bean. Roast them and the fat-burning ingredients are destroyed. Yes. Fat burning is the trick.
In some humans, the body naturally takes care of excess amino acids and other unnecessary fatty substances. But for most of us, our bodies don't have the right balance of chemicals to deal with our rather large appetites. And our appetites are for hunger-satisfying fatty foods. The green coffee simply provides the chemistry the body needs to get hold of the fatty molecules and to dispose of them by burning or breaking them down so that the body can dispose of them naturally.
So, no harm done and our arteries start to breath a sigh of relief. Weight loss using green coffee extract, then, has no harmful side effects. Most producers remove the caffeine making it a pure substance inasmuch as there are no ingredients in the extract that are not needed. The acid or acids are distilled to their purest form and condensed, ready to pounce on our excess fat.
