Chlorogenic Acid And Fat Loss

Chlorogenic Acid in Coffee BeansIn a current WebMD article titled “Green Coffee Beans May Aid Weight Loss“, it discussed a 22-week study which “found that 16 overweight men and women lost an average of 17 pounds.  They took the green (unroasted) coffee beans in supplement form and, for comparison, took a placebo at a different point of the study.  They did not change their diet. They were physically active. They lost more while on the supplements than while on placebo. They lost the most when on the higher of two coffee bean doses … Overall, body weight declined by an average of 10.5%. Body fat declined by 16%.”  The researchers do not think it was the caffeine in the supplement but they suspect the fat and weight reduction was due to the “unroasted beans’ chlorogenic acid” since it is known to help reduce glucose absorption in the body.  So logically, your blood sugar is lower, which forces your body to turn to the fat stores for energy rather than sugar.  You can read the rest of the WebMD article over here ===>>>”Green Coffee Beans May Aid Weight Loss“.

Okay, So What Is Chlorogenic Acid?

First and foremost, chlorogenic acid is a natural plant compound, with antioxidant and antimicrobial properties.  You can find high concentrations of chlorogenic acid in coffee … that is, in unroasted coffee beans.  However, chlorogenic acid tends to break down when coffee beans have been roasted, and thus, rendering them less effective.  As mentioned above, this phytochemical is known to inhibit the process of glycogenolysis, where glucose is released into your bloodstream.  Since chlorogenic acid inhibits this process, it helps reduce your sugar levels in your blood, forcing your body to turn to the fat stores to burn for energy.  This one-two punch can have a positive effect on diabetes as well as on losing body fat and weight.

Do All Coffee Beans Contain Equal Amounts Of Chlorogenic Acid?

Unfortunately, no.  Even though coffee beans do contain chlorogenic acid, there is a type of coffee bean found in Madagascar that is known to have the highest concentration of chlorogenic acid.  According to Dr. Steven Sisskind, “… the coffee we drink is actually called Coffea Arabica and all in all it is NOT a great source of these acids.  A much better source is a rare species called Coffea Canephora and this species of coffee has almost three times the chlorogenic acids as the coffee we drink.  They also figured out that it is the young coffee beans (green coffee beans) that have the highest concentration.”  To find out more info about this amazing acid which has been found to “more than double fat loss on human subjects” and increase “the muscle to fat ratio compared to placebo by over 250%”, read Dr. Steve’s article at ===>>> “Rare Coffee Bean More Than Doubles Fat Loss
