Green Coffee Bean(Item #917)
The World Health Organization predicts there will be 2.3 billion overweight adults in the world by 2015, and more than 700 million of them will be obese. Worldwide obesity has more than doubled since 1980. Several population studies have found coffee consumption to be inversely associated with weight gain, and consequently, to also reduce health risks. On the basis of this epidemiological data, further research found that the compound chlorogenic acid is the reason for this effect. In vitro and in vivo studies have shown that pure 5-caffeoylquinic acid - the most represented chlorogenic acid in coffee – inhibits glucose absorption from the intestine, as well as the enzyme glucose-6-phosphatase, which is involved in glucose release from the liver into the blood stream. By inhibiting these processes, blood sugar is lowered, triggering the breakdown of fatty tissue for energy and creating weight loss.
Contains 350 mg of green coffee bean extract, standardized to no less than 50% chlorogenic acids.
- Also provides 150 mg of Thermogenic Support Factors, including Panax ginseng and gotu kola, for antioxidant support during the oxidation and breakdown of fat.
- Gotu kola has also been suggested to strengthen connective tissue and combat cellulite.
