Green Coffee Bean a Key to Weight Loss?
USA- Delray Beach, FL | Oct 4 2012 | (23:08:57 - EDT)
Green Coffee Bean Extract (GCBE) is all over the news and the Internet, and health food stores can’t keep it on the shelves, says http://www.HealthyAnswers.com in a recent health alert. But, unlike many other diet aids, HealthyAnswers.com relates that Green Coffee Bean Extract has been clinically studied and found to have bone fide positive results in weight loss. For example, HealthyAnswer.com cites a 22 week double blind study out of the University of Pennsylvania. Participants who used the green coffee bean extract lost an average of 17 lbs with a 10 percent decrease in overall body weight and a 16 percent decrease in body fat.
HealthyAnswers.com states that Green Coffee Bean Extract was also tested on the popular Dr. Oz television show on two audience members who did not change their diets and took only the GCBE. After only one week, one of the test subjects reported losing 6 lbs, while the other lost 2 lbs.
HealthyAnswers.com also reports that, like many diet aids on the market today, Green Coffee Bean Extract also has its detractors. Some healthcare professionals question whether GCBE may raise dangerous homocysteine – a blood chemical marker for heart disease. Yet, HealthyAnswers.com cites a Japanese study done as far back as 2004 [Green coffee bean extract improves human vasoreactivity, Hypertens Res, 2004 Oct;27(10):731-7] with results that study participants given GCBE showed lower homocysteine levels than the placebo group. The GCBE group actually had improved vasoreactivity – strength of the arterial walls – than the placebo group.
Other concerns of some healthcare professionals, reports HealthyAnswers.com, is that GCBE may interfere with blood sugar control. Yet, HealthyAnswers also cites a study published by Life Extension Magazine [Suppress Deadly After-Meal Blood Sugar Surges, February 2012], with results that GCBE lowered post meal blood sugar surges by 24 percent compared to the placebo group. Another study showed a 32 percent post meal blood sugar reduction.
HealthyAnswers.com resident expert, Mark Rosenberg, M.D. , further explains the usefulness of Green Coffee Bean Extract in weight loss: “Green Coffee Bean Extract contains chlorogenic acid and ferulic acid which help lower blood glucose levels which stabilize insulin. When blood glucose levels are too high from insulin resistance – common to middle-age people – fat storage occurs, especially in the belly area. Green Coffee Bean Extract makes it possible for people to lose stubborn belly fat by controlling glucose and making them more sensitive to their own insulin.”
