Explaining Green Coffee
How does green coffee come about? Green coffee is just normal coffee that didn’t go through the normal roasting process instead is left completely raw. The extract from this coffee is popularly used as a dietary supplement. However, you can purchase green coffee in a whole-bean form and then use it to prepare a hot beverage.
The chemical profile of green coffee is different from regular roasted coffee despite being of the same origin. Green coffee contains a lot of chlorogenic acids (these are compounds that contain potent antioxidants and possess strong anti-inflammatory effects).
Benefits of Green Coffee
By now, you must be wondering why there is so much craze about green coffee. It is because green coffee presents you with so many benefits. In this section, we will take a look at some of these benefits.
Facilitates weight loss
Have you been struggling with obesity or do you just want to lose excess fat? You should consider taking green coffee. Several studies reveal that green coffee helps to combat obesity because it lowers the accumulation of excess fat. The green coffee extract was administered to obese mice and within a short time, it reduced their body weight gain significantly. While green coffee has proven to be very potent in this regard on animals, studies are still going on for humans. Notwithstanding, many people are already using green coffee for weight loss and the results are amazing.
Aids in diabetes treatment
As we mentioned above, green coffee contains chlorogenic acid that possesses strong anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Interestingly, chlorogenic acid has also been proven to affect blood sugar levels significantly. During a study conducted, doses of the green coffee extract were administered to the participants. It was recorded that the participants that got the highest dose showed the highest drop in their blood glucose levels.
We recommend that you take between three and four cups of green coffee daily to reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. The chlorogenic acid present in green coffee also helps to stimulate the secretion of insulin which is renowned for its anti-diabetic abilities.
Regulate blood pressure
The chlorogenic acid in green coffee also helps in inhibiting the production of active cortisol. Cortisol is one of the hormones that increase blood pressure levels in the body. A study carried out on hypertensive rats showed that by taking green coffee, they were able to reduce their blood pressure levels. When the same study was carried out on humans, it produced similar results.
Asides from inhibiting the production of active cortisol in the body, consuming green coffee improve arterial elasticity. This helps to reduce blood pressure levels considerably.
If you are worried that you are ageing too fast, you should add green coffee to your daily diet. Green coffee is known to possess antioxidant properties which are very important to slow down ageing. The chlorogenic acid in green coffee helps to improve microcirculatory function and skin properties in humans. Consumption of green coffee helps to decrease skin dryness as well as reduce transepidermal water loss. It also helps to improve the pH levels of the skin surface.
Side Effects of Green Coffee
While green coffee has so many benefits, it is not all good news about this product. There are a few side effects but not everyone experiences these side effects. Some of these side effects include:
- Abnormal increase in blood homocysteine levels.
- Excessive consumption can result in excess caffeine and result in high blood pressure, bleeding disorders, diarrhoea, thinning bones, etc.
- Pregnant women and nursing mothers are advised to stay away from green coffee to avoid complications. However, studies are still ongoing in this regard.
