Being able to shed unwanted fat and bloat while avoiding synthetic chemicals is high on many people's list. Luckily for you we developed this all-natural weight loss formula that focuses on increasing your energy, shredding fat, and improving overall wellness. Green Coffee Bean refers to seeds, "beans", of Coffea plants that have yet to be roasted. This is important as the heat from the roasting process eliminates the different powerful weight loss compounds that make up what are known as Chlorogenic Acids. By providing both active weight loss and beneficial health compounds of Polyphenols and Chlorogenic Acids, Green Coffee Bean is an excellent choice for those looking to lose fat naturally. We developed a top-notch formula that packs in 800mg of Pure Coffee Bean Extract carrying 50% of Green Coffee Antioxidant to ensure effectiveness. This means that it carries a heavy dose of 400mg of chlorogenic acids per serving!
Well, in order to understand where your weight loss effects are going to come from we need to take a look at the two active compounds we talked about earlier, chlorogenic acids and polyphenols:
Share benefits similar to caffeine but in a less potent manner, however it is their ability to act similar to bioflavinoids that result in effective weight loss. Chlorogenic Acids have been shown to possess the ability to actually reduce the amount of carbohydrates absorbed from the digestive tract, effectively lowering blood sugar levels and insulin spikes. They have also been shown to improve LDL cholesterol levels while lowering triglycerides. The aiding of carbohydrate metabolism and increase of BMR from it's caffeine-like properties allow Chlorogenic Acids to work as highly effective, natural weight loss compounds.
Large molecules made up of many phenol rings that carry many health benefits, most noticeably acting as powerful antioxidants. There are many polyphenols that are naturally occurring in nature and are able to act as performance enhancing and therapeutic agents. They are synthesized via the phenylpropanoid pathway that requires building blocks called phenolic acids. One of the most abundant in coffee beans, caffeic acid, carries a mild-stimulant effect as well as working as an anti-inflammatory. By raising calories burned from its stimulant properties and reducing inflammation, Polyphenols and their building blocks have been shown to work potently as weight loss compounds.
Green Coffee Beans May Lead to Weight loss, New Study Shows
“The new study involved 16 overweight people (with Body Mass Indexes between 25 to 30) between the ages of 22 to 46 years old. They were monitored for 22 weeks, in which they were given a low dose 700 mg green coffee extract tablet, a high dose 1,050 mg extract tablet and a placebo. Because they were given all the different doses and the inactive placebo, the participants acted as their own control group.
After the study, participants lost an average of 17 pounds, which broke down to a 10.5 percent decrease in overall body weight and a 16 percent decrease in body fat. Lead researcher Dr. Joe Vinson, a professor of chemistry at the University of Scranton in Pa., said in an emailed press release that the weight loss may have been more, but since the subjects received a lower dose and placebo at some point in the study it may have lessened the overall effect.”

Inhibitory effect of green coffee bean extract on fat accumulation and body weight gain in mice
“Male ddy mice were fed a standard diet containing GCBE and its principal constituents, namely, caffeine and chlorogenic acid, for 14 days. Further, hepatic triglyceride (TG) level was also investigated after consecutive administration (13 days) of GCBE and its constituents. To examine the effect of GCBE and its constituents on fat absorption, serum TG changes were evaluated in olive oil-loaded mice. In addition, to investigate the effect on hepatic TG metabolism, carnitine palmitoyltransferase (CPT) activity in mice was evaluated after consecutive ingestion (6 days) of GCBE and its constituents (caffeine, chlorogenic acid, neochlorogenic acid and feruloylquinic acid mixture).
It was found that 0.5% and 1% GCBE reduced visceral fat content and body weight. Caffeine and chlorogenic acid showed a tendency to reduce visceral fat and body weight.”

Chlorogenic Acids from Green Coffee Extract are Highly Bioavailable in Humans
“Chlorogenic acids (CGA) are cinnamic acid derivatives with biological effects mostly related to their antioxidant and antiinﬂammatory activities. Caffeoylquinic acids (CQA) and dicaffeoylquinic acids (diCQA) are the main CGA found in nature. Because green coffee is a major source of CGA, it has been used for production of nutraceuticals. However, data on the bioavailability of CGA from green coffee in humans are inexistent. The present study evaluated the pharmacokinetic proﬁle and apparent bioavailability of CGA in plasma and urine of 10 healthy adults for 8 h after the consumption of a decaffeinated green coffee extract containing 170 mg of CGA. Three CQA, 3 diCQA, and caffeic, ferulic, isoferulic, and p-coumaric acids were identiﬁed in plasma by HPLC-Diode Array Detector-MS after treatment. Over 30% (33.1 6 23.1%) of the ingested cinnamic acid moieties were recovered in plasma, including metabolites, with peak levels from 0.5 to 8 h after treatment. CGA and metabolites identiﬁed in urine after treatment were 4-CQA, 5-CQA, and sinapic, p-hydroxybenzoic, gallic, vanillic, dihydrocaffeic, caffeic, ferulic, isoferulic, and p-coumaric acids, totaling 5.5 6 10.6% urinary recovery of the ingested cinnamic and quinic acid moiteties. This study shows that the major CGA compounds present in green coffee are highly absorbed and metabolized in humans”
