Two cups a day of coffee made from these beans will help losing weight, lower blood pressure and much more
Coffee can easily be considered one of the world's popular drinks.
Great in meetings, with friends or family, at home in the morning after you wake up, or in the evening when you want to relax.
Coffee is rich with disease-fighting antioxidants according to WebMD. Numerous studies have shown that coffee helps reducing cavities, boost athletic performance, improve your mood, and stops headaches.
Not to mention that it also reduces the risk of type 2 diabetes, colon cancer, liver cancer, gall stones, cirrhosis of the liver, and of course Parkinson's diseases.
The regular coffee we all know is made of brown coffee beans that are grinded to thin powder.
Brown coffee is made of roasted beans - they are baked at high temperatures (around 475 degrees F), and during this process many of its natural nutritients are lost.
The natural beans of the coffee are actually green, and because they haven't been processed - they preserve many powerful nutritients and ingredients that provide some very interesting health benefits..
1. Helps burn fat
One of these famous natural nutritients, is Chlorogenic acid.
Chlorogenic acid is one of the antioxidants found in coffee that causes the body to burn glucose. It slows the release of sugar into the blood stream. When you don’t have sugar in the blood stream, you don’t have fat building up, according to Dr.Axe.
2. Weight Loss
Although there is no single "magical pill" solution for all weight problems, green coffee does seem to have an amazing ability on inducing weight loss.
A study conducted on 16 overweight young adults taking various doses of green coffee seed extract resulted in an average 17.5 pounds of weight loss, about 16% of body fat loss in 22 weeks. In the study, more than 35% of the participants lost 5% of their body weight.
3. Helps lower blood sugar.
Sometimes it can lower blood sugar significantly, which in turn, lowers the risk of Diabetes type II, which in turn lowers the risk for Alzheimer's, according to Alzheimers.net.
A double blind study, conducted by the University of Illinois, showed that out of the experiment group, 5 people who were pre-diabetic did not get diabetes after taking green coffee bean extract. Scientists say it’s because green coffee seed has the ability to aid in fat burning, while at the same time lowers glucose levels.
4. Helps lower blood pressure.
Many studies have proven that green coffee extract is effective in lowering blood pressure.
A study of 17 hypoglycemic patients revealed that after taking green coffee seed extract, 13 out of the 17 students had lower blood pressures. Taking about 800 mg proved to be more than effective in lowering their blood pressure.
5. Powerful antioxidant.
When the components of green coffee bean were assessed, they were found to have many antioxidant properties. The chlorogenic acid is said to be responsible for most of these antioxidant properties. If a person takes a 400 mg green coffee supplement, they will already have taken 50% of the daily antioxidant requirements of the average human.
