article imageOp-Ed: Green coffee bean extract fights obesity and diabetes

Recently Dr. Oz said green coffee bean extract helps speed up weight loss, new scientific research reveals that green coffee bean extract is a powerful anti-oxidant, and it significantly contributes to weight loss and blood sugar control.
From International Business Times: Dr. Mehmet Oz said recently that green coffee bean extract can help women lose weight. Green coffee beans are coffee beans that have not been roasted. While coffee is made from roasted coffee beans due to superior taste, the process eliminates needed chlorogenic acid, which speeds up weight loss. "Unfortunately, traditional brewed coffee doesn't serve as a good source of chlorogenic acid. While roasting green coffee beans removes its naturally bitter taste, it also removes a significant portion of chlorogenic acid. Hence, green coffee beans remain one of the best natural sources for chlorogenic acid."
From Natural News: Today, many people in society believe that too much coffee drinking is unhealthy, but this belief is only partially true. Pure green-coffee extract has become one of the best weight loss products sold on the market. There are many great health benefits associated with Green coffee extract consumption. Recent studies indicated that people who consumed the green coffee bean extract had better control of their weight, blood sugar levels, blood pressure levels, and cholesterol levels.
From Science Daily News: According to a few scientists, green or unroasted coffee beans can produce a substantial decrease in body weight within a short time. A recent study presented at the Exposition of the American Chemical Society described how a group of overweight people who consumed green coffee bean extract daily lost about 10 percent of their body weight.
From Dr. OZ Fact Sheet: Green coffee describes the raw and unroasted coffee beans. Green coffee beans are cleaned, dried, roasted, ground, and brewed to produce coffee. Coffee contains many components that could have potential and independent pharmacological effects. Coffee is a caffeine source. However, coffee’s effects on glycemic control and weight loss have been attributed to its other components, including chlorogenic acid, quinides, lignans, and trigonelline, which all have been demonstrated to improve glucose metabolism in animal studies. Chlorogenic acid has been demonstrated to inhibit an enzyme, glucose-6-phosphatase, that promotes sugar formation in the liver. Therefore, chlorogenic acid in coffee could be the reason for glycemic disorder’s reduced risk, like diabetes, when people participate in long-term coffee consumption.
Dr. Mehmet Cengiz Oz has become a famous American/Turkish cardiothoracic surgeon, author, and television personality. His recent endorsement of green coffee bean extract for the television public could slow the growing obesity and diabetes epidemic proliferating throughout North America and Europe as the coffee drinking public changes over from black to green coffee consumption. Many people who have taken the green coffee bean extract notice significant improvements in their ability to lose weight along with better blood sugar control. Coffee beans contain chemical component mixtures and some are not affected by roasting, while other compounds are produced by partial destruction of the green bean during roasting. The important non-volatiles are caffeine, tri-gonelline, chlorogenic acid, phenolic acids, amino acids, carbohydrates, and minerals. By retaining green coffee bean’s chlorogenic acid, more people should experience weight loss as they improve their diabetic condition. As always, people should check with their doctor or health care provider before consuming green coffee bean extract.
Finally, if people continue benefitting from green coffee bean extract, the food and drug administration (FDA) may begin to invent false claims about how unsafe this extract is for public consumption because the FDA could recognize green coffee bean extract as a significant threat to its drug making profits.
