People have drunk coffee for a long time, and it is manufactured by first roasting the coffee bean, and then grinding it. The roasting time and temperature, as well as how fine the bean is ground, decides the taste and strength of the coffee. By changing these variables, different coffee flavours can come from the same bean. One natural occurring chemical in coffee beans is chlorogenic acid, and this is the essential ingredient in Green Coffee extract.
Green coffee extract is not something new, it has been available as a health supplement for years. However, it is only recently that the positive effects have started to appear after some extensive research. The chlorogenic acid has shown to help people with illnesses such as diabetes and heart disease. Although not a cure, it has helped people manage these conditions much better. The latest craze though is that many people are taking it for weight loss.
So how does green coffee extract help people to lose weight? As well as the chlorogenic acid, coffee also contains caffeine, and a number of other chemicals. When the extract is taken it speeds up a person’s metabolism, and this in turns helps the body to naturally use more energy. This does not mean that a person can just sit down all day and continue life as normal. Then all they need to do is take coffee extract, and the weight will just drop off. As with most things in life, it is not that simple.
When taking the extract, it is still essential that a person changes their diet, and starts to exercise. What the green coffee does is help a person lose weight quicker than someone who is not taking it, but both are on the same diet, and doing the same amount of exercise.
