Green Coffee Extract

Green coffee beans are coffee beans that have not yet been roasted.  As the roasting process of coffee beans reduces amounts of the chemical chlorogenic acid, green coffee beans have a higher level of this acid.  Chlorogenic acid in green coffee is thought to have health benefits for heart disease, diabetes, and weight loss. Studies have shown that it may affect blood vessels so that blood pressure is reduced.

For weight loss, chlorogenic acid in green coffee is thought to affect how the body handles blood sugar and metabolism.
