All About Green Coffee Bean

Like any coffee bean it is gown on the coffee plant. The plant is native to Africa and Asia. History shows that in 1000 AD in Ethiopia, Green Coffee Bean was fermented to make an alcoholic drink closely resembling wine.

The bean is actually the seed. Unlike thr brown Coffee Beans we are used to seeing in coffee shops, the natural bean is actually Green. They only turn brown after roasting. The health benefit that green beans possess is due to its content of Chlorogenic Acid Content (CGA). The brown, roasted version does not have this because when under extreme temperature the CGA Degrades. So, brown coffee beans provide very few health benefits. CGA is a compound acid meaning that is made up of a number of acids, these are Ferulic, Caffeic and 2,3-Dimethoxycinnamic Acid. The name Chlorogenic Acid (CGA) comes from the Greek language “Chloro” meaning “Green”, which reflects the colour of the immature bean.

Here are a few health benefits of Green Coffee Bean :

  • Green Coffee Bean does contain a small amount of caffeine. Caffeine has been shown to boost your Metabolism by up to 11%.
  • Studies state that the greatest benefit of Green Coffee Beans is to Weight loss. Supposedly, CGA reduces carbohydrates absorption from the gut. This can stunt excess carbohydrates being stored as fat.
  • A study conducted on obese mice found that Green Coffee Beans helped to reduce overall body weight, dangerous Liver Fat and Hormones Produced by Fat – Adiponectin and Leptin.
  • Often you are discouraged from drinking coffee is you are hypertensive, but not green coffee. Studies show Green Coffee Beans seem to Lower High Systolic and Diastolic Values.
  • Green Coffee Beans has been shown to benefit lipid profiles of the blood. Thus, lowering Triacylglycerols (Trglycerides) in your blood and so lowering your risk of Cardiovascular Disease.
