Features Of A Quality Coffee Bean Extract

By Branden Houtz


After being featured in the Dr. Oz Show, green coffee bean extract has received a lot of buzz from people all over the world. It is said that supplements made from this extract can actually help people lose weight without changing their diet or participating in an exercise program. But how is this different from the myriad of other weight loss supplements that are available in the market today?


The regular coffee that we usually enjoy in the morning is made from roasted coffee beans. With green coffee, it does not get roasted and this is key to its weight loss capabilities. In its raw form, green coffee bean extract has a high amount of chlorogenic acid - a polyphenol antioxidant that helps promote weight loss by managing the way fat and glucose are absorbed in the body.

There were about 100 women who participated in the experiment conducted by Dr. Oz and it was shown that those who took the extract lost weight of two pounds on the average, for a period of 2 weeks and while taking 400mg of chlorogenic acid. In addition, the American Chemical Society hosted an experiment using the extract and the participants had an average of 17 pounds lost over the course of 22 weeks.

It is important to note that Dr. Oz refrained from recommending any particular brand of green coffee bean extract. Instead, the doctor mentioned guidelines as to how to choose a quality product. One of them is that the amount of chlorogenic acid has to be at least 45% to be effective. Chlorogenic acid may also be referred to in other products as either Svetol or GCA (green coffee antioxidant).

It is not unusual to find a lot of low-quality green coffee extracts on the market today due to the increased popularity it has acquired. With this in mind, it is important to be armed with the knowledge that will help you discern which product is worth buying. You should always read what is stated in the label, particularly the ingredients list. A good product should be pure and free from fillers or additives.

The coffee bean extract should not have any extra amount of caffeine besides what it is supposed to contain naturally. A good benchmark would be to have just 20mg of caffeine for every 800mg of chlorogenic acid. At this rate, you get less than 20% caffeine compared to regular roasted coffee. Over indulgence with caffeine usually leads to increased heart rate, insomnia, nervousness, and restlessness.

Before you proceed to purchasing any green coffee bean extract, you should read more about the claims of the manufacturer about the product and make sure it is not exaggerated. They should also provide you with any possible side effects. A quality product will have a clear listing of ingredients, the manufacturer, and contact details should the consumer have any product concerns.

Keep in mind though that with any type of supplements, there must still be some hard work and discipline on your part if you want to achieve the best results. Most people think that they can forego having a healthy diet and exercise and just take green coffee bean extract - this is simply not the best path to take if you want to truly lose weight the healthy way and keep if off permanently.
