I jumped on the green coffee bean extract bandwagon. The use of this substance as a weight loss supplement seemed to spark up overnight, so I was dubious that it was yet another fad. But, this one actually is different.
Green coffee bean extract is a pure extract, taken from coffee beans that are raw and green. These have a nutrient labeled chlorogenic acid, which is medically very beneficial to human health and weight loss.
This is not something someone whipped up in a lab. It comes from mother nature’s kitchen, and unlike most supplements out there, it has research behind it. The research was even double blind and in a placebo managed environment. I have done enough homework on supplement research to know that level of research is the highest quality.
The research suggests that this extract helps the human body burn fat faster through boosted metabolism and digestion, all while also boosting levels of internal antioxidants. It also seems to help regulate blood sugar levels.
That last point was what caught my eye, since I am diabetic. I started taking a minimal amount of the extract a month or so ago, and I am now down five pounds.
I admit, me myself is not overwhelming scientific proof that it works. As a matter of fact, the scientists and doctors are still looking into this extract.
Yet, it is natural. And so far, it seems to be perfectly safe and healthy, even if the effectivness is unproven. So, even if I am just losing weight because it is a placebo that makes me feel better, I am still losing weight.
I am certainly glad that the popularity of this has exploded. That means more testing for safe products, and more purchasing of it means the price per bottle should come down. It’s not bad in terms of cost, but hey, it’s a tough economy right now.
