Why is Green Coffee Extract the buzz lately and what is it exactly?

Coffee trees are grown in many different countries located primarily around the equator. The coffee plant produces coffee berries containing seeds which are commonly called coffee beans because they have an appearance similar to beans.

Coffee berries are usually picked by hand, although in a few countries machines are used. The most common method is called strip picking, which removes all of the berries from the branch at once regardless of whether they are a ripe red or unripe green. For higher quality coffee, only the red ripe beans are selectively picked to provide the best taste.

Once picked, the berries are processed to remove the fruit from the seeds. There are two main processing methods. Wet processing uses large amounts of water to sort bad coffee berries from good ones and to strip the fruit from the seed. Dry processing uses the heat of the sun to dry out the fruit so that it can be removed from the seed. Wet processing produces a coffee with a milder taste than dry processing, but it also produces a significant amount of coffee waste water that can be a pollutant to the environment.

After drying, the coffee beans are hulled and completely cleaned of any last fruit residue. They are sorted to remove bad fruit and also to separate the larger, heavier beans from the lighter, smaller ones that will produce a lower quality coffee.

The final step to make the coffee beans ready for brewing is to roast them. Unroasted coffee beans are considered “green” and are rarely used for coffee because of their bitter flavor. In their unroasted state, coffee beans contain important nutritional compounds that can be extracted to make green coffee bean extract.

Does Green Coffee Extract help lose weight?

In 2011, a study by Dr. Joe Vinson looked at the effect of green coffee bean extract on weight loss. This study followed 16 participants for a period of 22 weeks. During that time period, the participants were instructed not to change their diets or exercise habits. On average, the participants consumed around 2,400 calories per day and engaged in exercise that burned around 400 calories, so they were not following a low-calorie or high-exercise lifestyle. The study was a double-blind and placebo-controlled experiment, meaning that the experimenters didn’t know which participants were getting the green coffee bean extract and which ones were getting placebos.

During the study, the subjects were given a weaker dose of green coffee bean extract, a stronger dose of the extract and a placebo at different times. Each dose was take for six weeks, with a two-week rest period in between to clear out the effects of the previous dose. The participants’ weight loss while they were taking doses of the green coffee bean extract was compared against their own weight loss while on the placebo.

In every case, the participants lost weight while on the green coffee bean extract.
