Green Coffee Beans

Another weight loss tip arrives, so those who are already looking for one can take it they wish. According to a team from the American Chemical Society (ACS), green or unroasted coffee beans could be used for achieving weight loss.

For the study, 16 overweight people in the age-group 22 to 26 years were examined. While one group was exposed to capsules containing the extract of green coffee beans, another set consumed a placebo. Their physical activities and their diets were also taken note of.

“Based on our results, taking multiple capsules of green coffee extract a day — while eating a low-fat, healthful diet and exercising regularly — appears to be a safe, effective, inexpensive way to lose weight,” quoted Joe Vinson at the ACS meeting.

According to the observations, subjects shed almost 17 pounds in a span of 22 weeks. This effect was inclusive of about 10.5% reduction in cumulative body weight and 16% drop in fat deposits. The team asserted that consuming green coffee beans along with a healthy diet and active lifestyle could be a safe and less expensive way for weight loss.

The highlight of this alternative is its relatively fast result in terms of weight reduction. This influence of unroasted coffee beans is possibly due to one of its ingredient called chlorogenic acid. The latter is found only in unroasted coffee beans as heating them generally causes chlorogenic acid to break down.

This study was showcased at a meeting conducted by the American Chemical Society (ACS).
