Green Coffee Bean Extract….Finally, “the FACTS are HERE!”

Your Green Coffee Bean Extract Questions Answered:

If you have questions regarding this blog contact the author beckylgould@gmail.com

Q. What is pure green coffee bean extract?

A. Pure green coffee bean extract is a naturally occurring substance that is extracted from raw, unroasted coffee beans. It is a highly potent source of chlorogenic acid, which is the active substance that helps with weight loss.

Q. What is chlorogenic acid?

A. Chlorogenic acid is a polyphenolic compound that is found in abundance in raw coffee beans. It has proven to be effective as a weight loss supplement and was recommended on the Dr. Oz show.

Q. How does chlorogenic acid help me lose weight?

A. The presence of chlorogenic acid in the body triggers the liver to stop releasing glucose into the blood stream so that the body will burn stored fat to utilize the glucose content in its fat cells as energy. This process also increases the body’s metabolism to speed up fat loss.

Q. What if my liver is compromised or I have a fatty liver? Will the green coffee bean extract work the same?

A. If you have a compromised liver or fatty liver, we suggest that you detox prior to starting green coffee bean extract. Also, milk thistle, broccoli, and a multitude of other products have both been proven to help restore the liver to a healthier state. By taking a daily dose of Aloe Vera juice, this can decrease inflammation of the liver so that is able to optimally function. The healthier your liver, the better it will be able to promote weight loss with use of green coffee bean extract. A healthy diet with an abundance of fruits, vegetables, and fiber is recommended as well as ongoing detoxing. For more information on products that promote healthy liver function contact beckylgould@gmail.com

Q. Can you  explain in more detail how the green coffee bean extract burns fat?

A. . When chlorogenic acid is present in the body, the liver stops producing glycogen, which is the enzyme that is responsible for releasing glucose into the blood. Glucose is normally used by the body to produce energy; however, when the body doesn’t have a stable amount of glucose in the blood it begins to convert stored fat into usable energy.

Q. Are there any side effects of pure green coffee bean extract?

A. There have been no reports of any adverse side effects of pure green coffee extract. However, anyone that has sensitivity to caffeine may experience mild jitters or an increased energy surge.

Q. Is green coffee bean extract a type of drug or prescription medicine?

A. No. Green coffee bean extract is not a drug or medication. It is purely a dietary supplement that does not require a prescription.

Q. Can I just drink normal coffee instead of green coffee to get the same results?

A. No, roasted coffee loses its chlorogenic ability because of the high temperatures used. Therefore, it is very important to know that the product you purchase has been extracted correctly and still is in the raw form. There are products on the market that are mimicking green coffee, yet are actually ground roasted coffee beans. For a national report from a research company that reviews products for overall health and quality, contact beckylgould@gmail.com and you will be provided a list of all manufactures of green coffee extract. Products are rated on a scale from 1-10 by a unbiased, honest national reveiw board.

Green Coffee Extract Ingredients Questions:

Q. Is there any caffeine in pure green coffee bean extract?

A. Yes. Caffeine is a naturally occurring substance in green coffee beans. However, the chlorogenic acid extraction process has eliminated most of the caffeine content. Each capsule contains roughly the same amount of caffeine as 1/8 cup of coffee. There are products on the market that do not have caffeine in them; however, we recommend the product that is patented and DOES contain a small amount of caffeine for optimal weight loss. If you have problems with caffeine, refer to beckylgould@gmail.com for a list of non-caffeinated options.

Questions About Taking Pure Green Coffee Bean Extract:

Q. What forms does green coffee extract come in?

A. Green coffee extract comes in both tablet form and capsule form. We recommend a veggetable capsule so that it easily absorbs in the intestines. Other capsules remain undigested and often times are eliminated without ever being absorbed. Make sure that the product you purchase is from a legitamate manufacture with a healthy capsule. For more information on a patented green coffee product contact beckylgould@gmail.com

Q. How do I know if I am getting a real pure green coffee product?

A. First of all, you need to make sure that you are using a reputable source for purchasing the green coffee product so that you get one with high chlorogenic percentage of extract. The capsule should be clear, with very light brown or beige color of powder. Even though the product is called “green” the actual powder is beige- brown. You need a high concentraction of extract but realize that  most ALL products have to have some filler added to make sure that the product does not go bad or spoil. Also, some fillers are used as a binding ingredient to be able to pack the powder effectively into the capsule. Fillers have a very necessary purpose, and for the most part, there are no products on the market that can contain 100% of the active ingredient unless they are some sort of oil extracted in a pure form. In this case the product would have a short shelf like and be so expensive that many could not afford it. So if someone claims they have PURE green coffee, this is a marketing tactic. Good product should contain at least 100mg within the total capsule of raw green coffee bean extract.

Q. How often do I need to take green coffee extract?

A. We recommend a starting dosage of approximately 400 mg of green coffee extract every day, three times per a day prior to meals. You may increase the dosage slowly if you are not experiencing any adverse effects. It is important that you know check with your doctor for adverse drug interactions. For a list of drug interactions with green coffee extract contact beckylgould@gmail.com

Q. When is the best time of day to take green coffee extract?

A. It is recommended that you make it a part of your daily routine by taking it prior to meals.

Q. Will I notice immediate results when I take green coffee bean extract?

A. Results vary from person to person depending on diet, exercise, and general overall health. To get the optimal results we recommend that you start the product after a 1-3 day detox program. It is also helpful to make sure that your hormonal balance is regulated to optimize weight loss.

Q. What if my hormones are not balanced?

A. When the hormones are not balanced, there is a general response from the body that triggers a defense mechanism which can often result in the body holding on to fat. Weight loss still may be accomplished by taking green coffee bean extract, however, the results may be slower than if the body had balanced hormones. Also, additional weight loss products can be added, such as raspberry ketone or 7 keto to aid the process. Always check with your doctor before adding additional products or contact beckylgould@gmail.com for a list of drug intereractions with green coffee bean extract.

Q. How to I balance my hormones?

A. By getting a complete female or male blood test panel, this will show if there is a hormonal imbalance. Then seeking out natural hormone replacement therapy is often recommended. This subject is controversial; however, more and more people are experiencing good results with bio-identical hormone replacement and noticing that while being treated,  their bodies are returning to a more youthful state of wellbeing plus weight loss is easier. For articles regarding bio-identical hormone replacement contact beckylgould@gmail.com

Q. What happens if I stop taking green coffee extract for a few days?

A. Pure green coffee bean extract is most effective when taken daily. If you miss a day, there’s no need to take extra capsules to make up for the capsules you missed. Just start your routine again the next day and try to stay on track for the best results.

Q. Can I take extra green coffee bean extract capsules to increase weight loss?

A. We recommend that you follow the usage instructions and only take three 400 mg capsules every day. You can increase the dose thereafter if you are not experiencing any side effects. The maximum recommended dosage is 1000 mg x 3, but we recommend that you talk to your doctor prior to increasing the dosage.

Q. Can I take green coffee extract with my other vitamins and supplements?

A. Yes. Pure green coffee bean extract can be taken with other vitamins and/or supplements.

Q. Can I take green coffee bean extract with my prescription medications?

A. Before adding green coffee extract to your diet, it is recommended to consult your healthcare professional if you have any medical conditions that require you to take prescription medications.

Q. How old do you have to be to take green coffee bean extract?

A. We only recommend green coffee bean extract to adults 18 years or older.

Q. Can my child take green coffee extract?

A. No. We recommend that you do not give green coffee extract to children that are 17 years of age or younger.

Q. Where do I store green coffee bean extract?

A. To maximize the effectiveness of pure green coffee bean extract, we recommend that you store it in its original bottle at or below room temperature (24 C / 75 F). We recommend that you do not store green coffee extract in any other type of packaging or pill containers.

Q. Can I take green coffee extract if I am pregnant, breastfeeding, or trying to become pregnant?

A. Although pure green coffee extract has not been formally studied in pregnant women, breastfeeding women, or women trying to become pregnant, we recommend that you consult a healthcare professional to find out if green coffee extract is the right choice for you during this time.

    I started using green coffee bean extract and saw no result for the first week and a half. I was maintaing my weight, then I stepped on the scale 4 days later and was shocked to see I dropped 6 ponds which seems over night! I was taking only 1 caspule a day 200mg. I had no side effects at all. i will definitly continue and up my doseage to 400mg a day.. :)

    • This is SO great that you have lost weight so quickly! I love the coffee product, too, especially after I did a liver cleanse that seemed to make all of the difference in the world. I am very happy for you and all of the people writing in that are finally finding something that is worth singing about! I have lost some weight and feel so great! It did not happen overnight for me, but it is worth waiting and just adding to your daily rountine. I bought good quality patented product so make sure that if you are reading this that you do, too. There are some reports of people finding swiss mocha in their capsules or not getting product at all. Congrats and best wishes for a Skinny SUmmer!

    • Fantastic- way to to go!!! SO many people are losing weight with the same product that you are on with the coffegenic
      The site that has the original product, the one with the test results and the one with the patent is http://www.vitaminadvocate.com where they sell the real deal because we are ALL living it! Thanks for sharing- love the success stories!

    • That is SO Great! Yes you have to stick with it- it is slow weight loss which is perfect for the body and does not create these big crashes. Keep up the good work and write back with how you are doing

  2. Can you recommend some websites where I can buy the green coffee bean and the raspberry ketonne

    • http://www.vitaminadvocates.com
      Or you can go direct to the lab but you have to pay a membership fee of $100.
      They are the originator of the product and the govenment paid them millions to design this to help the obisity crisis.

    • I am really a bit skeptical about the raspberry ketone although people are losing weight. It seems that it is either really good for someone or they have side effects. So start with a low dose one like bio-nutrician that is mixed with green tea- it is easier on the body and you can always increase the dose. Green coffee bean extract from Vitamin Advocates is the real product that has been scientifically tested. You cannot lose (except lose weight) with this product given the name on the bottle says it all and is proven. Go to http://www.vitaminadvocates.com fo read the blog about the study and they have the rea product there too.

  3. Jenny on said:

    Where can I buy them? How I know they are the real ones? Do you know a name brand that I can buy? Thank you, and I hope that you can help me!!!

    • it is a very scary world- Many labs are not under investigation and I have hundreds of pills people have mailed me that are fakes, “swiss mocha”
      So the best way to know that you have real product is to just buy from the ones that discovered this! LEF is the brand sold on http://www.vitaminadvocates.com that did the study that Dr Oz talked about- they were the “lab”. Research it yourself and then see the blog on that site that has the results.

  4. Jenny on said:

    I have try so many things but its so hard for me to lose weight! I go to the YMCA 5 days a week, and I see no result! I really want to try the Green Coffee Beans I just don’t know where to buy it and what brand name!

    • CoffeeGenic patented is what was the product done in the study that produced 17-22 lbs in 100% of the subjects. the site that has the most recent new coffee bean that has the highest percent of Chlorogenic Acid is at http://www.vitaminadvocates.com and you can read the study on the blog. It is true that they have been given money to fight the obesity crisis and to research more about this fabulous product-

    • If you go to the BLOG on http://www.vitaminadvocates.comm you will read about the scientic study that came out in June 2012. The company has been paid millions by govenment grants to try to end obesity and the diabetes problem. So they started with the green coffee bean extract and came up a winner- all subjects lost at least 17 lbs. It is not overnight miracle- you have to stay on it and be methodical about taking it before meals and eatting decently. But it works and may save people from getting diabetes- The brand that the study was done on is on the site too and is the most up to date formula. I never worry that products are bad because the products on the site are top of the line- You get what you pay for because scientific studies cost alot of money so if you think a cheap product is tested, think again! I will be on Coffee bean extract for life!

    Hi Becky,

    I wish I had read your blog before I had made my purchase at my local health food store today ….I should have asked you for the list of manufactures first. I purchased a bottle of 60 capsules of Green coffee bean extract by Healthy Me for $44.99 Canadian ( I live in Toronto Ontario). I had looked on line o for weeks, on serial sites, but most were either sold out or did not ship to Canada( the few who did ship to Canada wanted too much for s& h and with the exchange it was way too expensive, and honestly before making a big purchase I’d like to know that I am getting the real deal it will work for me). I couldn’t believe how many links there where, and yes most zapped me to the same site/page. So today when I finally saw this one brand being put on the selves today I jumped. I hope I didn’t get scammed. 

    So if you could please send me a list of trusted manufactures (hopefully the one I have will be one of them ) then I can go from there.

    Thank you for your time and for your very honest and informative blog.


    p.s. I opened a capsule and tasted it. It wasn’t as bitter as I was expecting, but it wasn’t sweet either.

    • The company that did the main study and was given millions of dollars to reasearch green bean coffee extract is the one that is on the site at http://www.vitaminadvocates.com and the one that has let out press release on the great results with 100% success rate- a miracle!
      If you do your research,they also have contributed to so many breakthroughs! The green coffee product originated by them and they use the strongest coffee extract known on the planet for the chlorogenic acid (very strong) unlike other companies that use weaker species. Their product is patented and is the one that Dr Oz spoke about although the dosage was wrong! The most recent patented formula is on the site at http://www.vitaminadvocates.com and is the one that most are losing weight with. FYI, it takes 2-3 weeks to get GBCE regulated in your system and also at first it makes you tired. this is because the blood sugar glucose is being lowered (which it is supposed to do!) but your body is not used to this response so fatique sets in. SO eventually this is where your body SHOULD BE with the glucose level and will adapt (if you are diabetic or prediabetic TEST YOUR BLOOD FREQUENTLY so that you do not fall low!)
      \Take this with GREENS FIRST BOOST http://www.vitaminadvocates.com as a suppliment for breakfast and you will lose twice as fast.

    I have been taking the Green Coffee Bean for about a month now, but I have had
    sleeping issues and my skin itches, almost like allergies but more severe. Maybe I am just to
    sensitive to caffeine. Any Suggestions

    • it does sound like an allergy. Email me directly and I can put you in touch with the dr of the product that might be able to help you-‘Also it could be that it is a fake product. I have never heard of anyone on the real product that has had problems. If it is a fake product this is probably the cause so taste it and if it is not very bitter then this is the issue. Hope this helps

    • You have a allergy to a fake product-Unless you have allergies to coffee then this is a bad product
      The real product talked about and the original should not give you this effect. http://Www.vitaminadvocates.com
      This LEF product is the one that the study was done on- read the blog on there because this is not hype this is FACT. Very exciting and the real product is working. Detox and then start for great results! No more itching…:O)

    • Which product are you using? You may have a product that is not totally forthwise with the ingredients. The product that was tested was the CoffeeGenic and the subjects took 800Mg x 2 per day. I would suggest you try the product that is patented and on the site where the test results can be found on the blog- vitamin advocates has only quality “tried and true” products that have been tested on humans, not on mice- It could be that you have a fake product and that is giving you allergic response.

    I have been taking green coffee bean extract 800 mg 2xday 30 min. before meals and 100 mg acai berry after meals and I feel great and have gone from size 28 to 22 in a few months. Thanks for the info.

    • The coffee bean extracet and the GREENS FIRSt product work great! It speeds up the process by 2 times. If you want more info on this email me directly at beckygould@ymail.com

    • WOW- that is great- the product at http://www.vitaminadocates is a blessing to you and me AND my friends! I am so grateful. Thanks for sharing your story and my be we should also take acai berry although I heard that GREENS FIRST works better- my friends daughter lost 30 lbs in 2 months taking both green coffee bean extract and greens first at the site http://www.vitaminadocates.com I just started Greens first!

    • That is SO GREAT! Congrats! Yes so many people are losing weight slowly (the right way) with the green coffee bean extract from LE- My friends daughter is using the prduct from Vitamin Advocates and also taking the it with “GREENS FIRST” product and down 30 lbs- another blog reader lost 15 lbs and is 62 years old on green coffee bean extract from Vitamin Advocates- she started with an “off brand” and found out it was fake and when she started with the real product BOOM, she is in better shape then when she was 40! I will be doing a blog on her story soon!

    Can you tell me what are some caffeine free versions of the green coffee extract? Will people have any kind of success using this kind without the caffeine? Thanks so much for your help.

    • This is a really good question. However, the product that I am on does not have any apparent “coffee like” symtoms and I am super sensitive to caffeine. It does not make me jittery at all in fact just the opposite where I feel calm. I think because it lowers the glucose levels this is entirely different mechanism then ground coffee beans. There are a couple of products without the caffeine, but not sure if they work or not-Swansons has no caffeine and patented product, but I no nothing about the end results. I DO KNOW that so many people are using the product from Vitamin Advocates and that this is the real product that they did the scientific study on- I think it is a positive thing to base products on facts and not assuptions. The results of that test with every single subject losing 17-22 is astounding and you can read it at http://www.vitaminadvocates.com for the details. Expect it to take time, though. Like anything else, it takes 2-3 weeks to get fully into your system to start to do what it is intended to do. I plan to be on it for life! Email me and i will give you the advise line to ask about caffeine though- best to you!

      • teri carrillo on said:

        H I purchased the capsules. I have not taken them bc I have a toddler which I still bf. Is iy safe? Thanks!

      • DO not take while breast feeding as this can also lower your babys blood glucose levels. Never take anything that might compromise your childs health. Always check with a DR before doing anything like taking supplements.

  9. If I forget to ttake this before a meal, should I take it with the meal or wait until 30 minutes before the next meal?

    • You should continue to take it even if it is late- You want a constant level of the chlorogenic acid in your body which will help to regulate glucose and eliminate the spikes that contribute to prediabetes and adrenal fatigue. Also, the GCBE helps to lower cholesteral and blood pressure. After 1 1/2 months on GCBE I am back to perfect scores on blood pressure and cholesteral! I am totally shocked to be medication free after 4 years with this struggle. Weight is coming off and I am feeling so much better overall.

  10. Do I have to take them before meals? Or can I take them upon waking and before sleep like I do with my other vitamins?

  11. I just started taking GCBE 800mg twice daily / 30 prior to meals ~ and am drinking tons of water, at least 64 ounces a day – carry a 32 ounce bottle and fill it 2 x daily. I’m eating healthy and exercising, but experiencing some constipation – otherwise, I feel fine….any words of advise?

    • Let us know how you are doing…the water is great for the organs which all work together to get rid of fat. When they are hydrated they do a better job. If you can put some cucumbers in the water with lemon or lime this will really kick in the weight loss. Keep us posted here.

    • I have noticed a slight bit of constipation with GCBE too. Try Prunelax at your local drug store- it is gentle and gets the job done. Also, try the Greens First product on the website- will speed up weight loss and help get fiber into your system PLUS will restore liver to non toxic state given all of the free radicals that are in our foods and environment- it is on sale at http://vitaminadvocates.com It will also reduce any inflamation in your stomoach.

  12. Miranda on said:

    I usually only eat 2 full meals a day, should I only take it when I will eat full meals or should I take a 3rd one at some point? I see that it give energy so I am thinking that I probably should not take it before I try to sleep?

    I am a 34 year old mom of 3 who is struggling with an underactive thyroid. I haven’t been successful getting my thyroid to the right level. (going to a naturalpathic doc) I am 30 pounds overweight, and can’t lose a pound. So discouraging. Do you think this will work even with my thyroid issues?

    • Many times drs treat the thyroid when in it is really the adrenal that is lacking. Get your adrenals checked- cortosol levels. Dr Jim Wilson is the very best in the industry to treat this. I have underactive adrenal and take his products >slowly my adrenal (and now my thyroid) are beginning to turn around.
      GBCE will probably not work if the hormones thyroid/adrenal is not working. Start with getting this under control first then try the product. Don’t give up- seek a total hormone panel and saliva test (more accurate) and “get the body balanced first”.

    • Go to the website http://www.calmglow.com- this dr works with people all over the usa that have underactive thyroids, adrenals, and hormone issues.
      She is a god-send to me and I am getting my body balanced finally. I feel better then I have in years.

  14. Since I have started taking this product the last three days, I am experiencing from lower to all the way up shoulder pain. Any one have this problems.

    • You should check with a dr- this could be sign of a heart attack. This does not sound related to GCBE, but some heart paplpitations are reported with Raspberry K and 7 – keto. Stop using the products and go straight to ER or Dr.

  15. Jackie on said:

    How long (how many hours) does the chlorogenic acid remain active in the body once you take it ?
    If I eat carbs 2 hrs after taking it, will it still block those carbs ?

    Thank you !

    • it is best to eat a diet higher in protein and lower in carbs. It does not block carbs entirely so it is not recommended to carb load. GCBE is intended to help block some carbs but to curb your glucose levels by balancing them out. After a carb filled meal glucose will spike- these spikes result in body changes including the storage of fats. By leveling out these spikes, reduces fat storage, thus weight loss. GCBE is not a cure-all. All of these diet products are intended to work with a healthy diet high in protein and low in carbs. The products take time and work best as a lifestyle change, not just a one time wonder or miracle pill.


    • You should always check with your dr first to see if there are interactions with any meds that you are on. Otherwise, start one product at a time so that if there are adverse reactions you know which one it is. Yes they can be used at the same time. Always start at a low dosage then work up. Best results are seen with a reduced calorie diet high in protein and low in carbohydrates. Check blood glucose if you get tired or dizzy- your blood sugar maybe adjusting and lower then usual.

  17. Thanks…Im not on any meds!

  18. It would be easier to take Becky seriously if she didn’t continuously plug that damn vitamin website where there obviously some sort of kickback for links made from this one, and the spelling mistakes.

    • There are no kickbacks- After starting the blog and discovering Life Extension products, the website was created to allow people to buy real products never having to worry again about the qualify or dosages. If you go to life extension website they charge $75 to join- I dont charge anything and offer th4e same products and with discounts. My appologies for typos- I have been responding to many of these comments via iphone from the hospital where my son is struggling for his life. I am sure that most people understand. I also have dyslexia- Best regards to you and I applogize if I ever have offended anyone.
