Green Coffee Bean Extract - Glossary

Green Coffee Bean Extract

An extract made from green, unroasted coffee beans.  Green coffee bean extract is rich in chlorogenic acid, which has anti-hypertensive, vasorelaxing, antioxidant and hypoglycemic effects in humans and/or animals.  Green coffee bean extract has also been demonstrated to have fat/weight loss effects in mice, and – according to a manufacturer’s in-house study – may assist with fat loss in humans, as well.

Green coffee bean extract is currently sold as a standalone supplement, as well as an ingredient in various commercial weight loss supplement blends.
