Lose Weight With Green Coffee Extract
While nothing can take the place of a clean‚ healthy diet and regular exercise‚ certain supplements can help make the process of shedding the pounds a little easier. By combining clean‚ moderated eating and workouts with the proper supplements‚ many people are able to drop more pounds than they would with just diet and exercise alone.
Caffeine has been a popular weight loss supplement ingredient for decades. In high doses it controls appetite‚ and increases energy and endurance‚ allowing for better workouts.
One of those great supplements is green coffee bean extract. Taken from the unroasted coffee bean‚ the extract is a powerful antioxidant and helps control blood sugar. Antioxidants protect cells from free radical damage‚ which can cause cancers and auto-immune illnesses. Controlling blood sugar spikes is important for keeping food cravings at bay. What if you don’t like coffee? Well‚ you’re in luck! The green bean extract doesn’t have any coffee flavor whatsoever.
The key ingredient not available in regular roasted coffee is chlorogenic acid. Dr. Mehmet Oz‚ cardiothoracic surgeon and host of NBC’s Dr. Oz Show‚ advises that the chlorogenic acid is virtually eliminated during the roasting process‚ and while regular drinking coffee certainly has healthy properties – including antioxidants‚ the chlorogenic acid necessary for blood sugar and weight control can only be found in green coffee bean extract.
The extract has been studied‚ and while results aren’t 100% conclusive‚ the anecdotal evidence shows that not only does it help control cravings and blood sugar spikes‚ but it also helps better metabolize fat in the body. That means your body burns its fat stores before it burns other sources for energy. Other ways to enhance metabolic burn are to do weight and/or resistance training. Muscles have what’s called an “afterburn effect” that continues to nuke fat in the body hours after you are done exercising. Green coffee extract used as a supplement to weight and resistance training will keep that afterburn going for longer.
Here is what you need to know when researching and purchasing a supplement made with green coffee bean:
- Capsules should contain at least 45% chlorogenic acid
- Chlorogenic acid May be listed as proprietary compounds Svetol or GCA
- Take 400mg 30 minutes before each meal
- Not recommended for people taking anti-diabetes or high blood pressure medication as the caffeine May have a negative interaction
- Ask your doctor how much caffeine is safe for you to consume‚ given your health history
Remember to eat a clean diet full of healthy produce and lean meats‚ and keep to a regular exercise regimen – ideally 45 minutes‚ 4 times a week. Keep high glycemic carbohydrates and sugars to a minimum to control blood sugar spikes. While no pill is a miracle‚ the right supplement can have you burning more fat in less time and getting that lean‚ hard physique you’ve always wanted.
