WHAT IS GREEN COFFEE
Green coffee powder is derived from raw and unroasted coffee seeds from the Coffea fruit plant. The usual roasting process of coffee beans removes most of the active key chemical ingredient that is Chlorogenic Acid. Green coffee beans contain 100% pure Chlorogenic Acid (CGA) compared to regular, roasted coffee beans.
Chlorogenic acid is the bioactive ingredient; an ester of caffeic acid. This is the major polyphenolic compound in coffee, isolated from the leaves and fruits of dicotyledonous plants. This compound acts as an antioxidant and also slows the release of glucose into the bloodstream after a meal. Helping to control high blood pressure, lowering inflammation, aiding weight loss and maintaining blood sugar levels in the body. As well as protecting the heart and lowering the risk of neurological diseases. Many experts believe that free radical damage is a factor in the development of a host of diseases, including cancer and atherosclerosis. Antioxidants like those found in green coffee beans may play an important role in either managing or preventing diseases such as cancers, heart disease, Alzheimer’s disease, macular degeneration, diabetes and arthritis-related conditions.
HOW IT WORKS | THE BENEFITS
Chlorogenic Acid is a powerful antioxidant that helps to lessen the damaging effects of harmful free radicals in the body and help support overall health. It improve skin properties and microcirculatory functions. Reducing redness associated with excessive sunlight exposure, limiting photo damage, decreasing skin roughness, wrinkle formation, and reduces the appearance of crow’s feet. Improving skin hydration and surface pH.
AIDING FAT AND WEIGHT LOSS
Chlorogenic acid is highly absorbable and known to aid the body in burning glucose and stored fat for energy, through boosting metabolism and burning more calories. As caffeine provides a stimulant effect on the central nervous system, drinking it raises the metabolism and increases the oxidation of fatty acids, aiding one’s ability to lose weight. It helps increase the Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) of our body, which further minimises the release of glucose from the liver into the bloodstream. To fulfill the requirement of glucose, the body starts burning the excess fat stored in the fat cells, eventually resulting in weight loss, through the releases of fat burning enzymes. It also reduces the absorption of carbohydrates (lowering blood sugar and insulin spikes), and improves cholesterol. Chlorogenic acid combined with caffeine (found in green coffee) is one of the few natural compounds that have been scientifically proven to aid fat burning, by decreasing the absorption of sugars in your small intestines which means that less sugar is available to be stored as fat. Chlorogenic acid also acts as a natural appetite suppressant. It helps control cravings and overeating. Regular green coffee consumption is also known to block fat and carb absorption in the body.
Green Coffee is a great natural detoxifier for the liver. It cleanses the liver and removes bad cholesterol and unnecessary fats which eventually perks up our metabolism.
