Green Coffee Bean Extract with GCA BLOCKS Calorie Absorbtion and BURNS FAT- New “PROVEN” Human Study Results!!!

This article posts the results of the latest human study on Green Coffee Bean Extract that came out June 2012. It is SO amazing and exciting! This is  NOT HYPE, I PROMISE! You already know me by now, that I am all about finding out the TRUTH! The results in the study are making me smile cheek to cheek! The facts are quite astonishing.  But not all green coffee is working. Why is THIS PRODUCT the “HERO” while others are not  working for weight loss??? Dr Oz recommended only 2 manufactures, 1 with Svetol and the other patented product with GCA.  Seems that not all chlorogenic acid from green coffee is created equal. So if your green coffee product has failed you, read on to discover why that may be, and what we now KNOW is the answer to weight loss…If you would like the name of the 2 products that Dr Oz recommends please contact me at beckylgould@gmail.com (we cannot post names on this site)To be quite frank, I  am tired of all of the HYPE and would like to know who I can trust! Between the media, various vitamin supplement companies, and Dr. Oz recommendations I am so confused at what is truthful anymore. It seems that many recommendations are being offered up to the public, but how do we KNOW that they work? This is the BIG question we are all waiting patiently for! Does Green Coffee Bean Extract REALLY WORK???

Well, today my answer came to me in my mail box from my #1 supplement company!  The FACTUAL DATA that I have been looking for is sitting right in front of me in the form of a press release about an official green coffee bean human study! Plus, although Dr Oz did not mention any specific names of manufactures he recommends, he did mention that there were ONLY 2 he would recommend. They both hold patents-trademarks on their products and one of them is the product used in this successful study.

The amazing company that conducted this live study is a non-profit organization that is focused on ending the obesity epidemic and the problems associated with it. The company has been awarded TONS of funding to conduct scientific studies to breakthrough this problem. So I am here to inform you that the results from the most recent study on Green Bean Coffee Extract WITH GCA is very positive! Here it is….

WARNING:  Now, before you run off and purchase a case of green coffee bean extract product, please note that there was a specific PATENTED BRAND of product used in this weight loss study. I don’t know about you, but I want some of this brand and not some other brand that has not been tested.  This is the truth: I found out how to get this THIS EXACT PRODUCT that was used in this study and is PROVEN TO DELIVER WEIGHT LOSS RESULTS.  If I don’t buy it up all for myself, I will share this with you. I don’t know about you, but I cannot wait to become a part of the weight loss statistics! I am banking my money on this product based on factual data, and not investing in other companies that are offering “hope in a bottle” by stuffing coffee mocha into a capsule. This is the REAL DEAL, readers! So smile, kick your feet up, today is the day we have all been waiting for!  Let’s celebrate and take our cover-ups off for skinner and healthier future! READ ON……

Investigation: Chlorogenic Acid COMPOUND VS Chorogenic EXTRACT from Green Coffee Beans?

To investigate the weight-reducing effect that had been shown in roasted and brewed coffee, scientists turned to compounds extracted directly from green coffee beans. The green coffee beans contain higher amounts of chlorogenic acid and other polyphenol compounds that are substantially lost during the roasting   process that turns them brown.

Investigators tested two agents first on mice: The 1st agent was chlorogenic acid  from green coffee bean “COMPOUND” and 2nd was another agent, green coffee bean “EXTRACT”. They found that chlorogenic acid COMPOUND alone showed a moderate weight-reducing effect. However, the green coffee bean EXTRACT with GCA  produced much greater weight loss.13 This was attributed to its ability to inhibit the absorption of fats from the intestine and enhance fat metabolism in the liver.1

 Compelling Weight-Loss Results with “CROSSOVER STUDY”

To determine conclusively that green coffee bean EXTRACT has a potent anti-obesity benefit, scientists set up a study of rigorous design: a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, linear dose, crossover study on humans.

In a crossover study,  participants are cycled through different phases of treatment and placebo. In this case, subjects took a high dose of green coffee bean extract with GCA patented product for 6 weeks, a lower dose green coffee bean extract for 6 weeks, and a placebo for 6 weeks in a randomized, double-blind manner.  Between phases, there was a 2-week “washout” period, making the entire study 22 weeks long.

Crossover studies are considered sound,  because each person in the test group serves as his or her own control. This improves the chances of getting an accurate result, because it eliminates the possibility of the outcome reflecting a difference between the active and control groups.  Instead, any difference in results can be attributed with much greater  confidence to the different supplements taken.

To ensure the findings were more representative, the investigation enlisted both men and women.

Participants were restricted to those who were classified by their BMI as obese or pre-obese, because those who have these conditions are subject to obesity’s metabolic effects and find weight loss difficult to achieve.

To avoid any confounding effect from drugs, subjects were excluded if they had taken any medications known to influence weight during the previous 6 months.

To further ensure that any effect on weight, body fat or BMI could be solely attributed to the extract, there were no significant changes in dietary calories or in the dietary percentages of carbohydrates, fat, and proteins at any time during the study. There were also no significant changes in exercise.  The daily capsules were the only intervention, although in a non-study situation, people seeking weight reduction would ideally combine this intervention with lower calorie consumption and greater physical activity to   promote maximum weight loss.

During the high-dose phase, subjects took 400 mg of green coffee bean extract, three times daily. The lower dose phase included 400 mg of extract, taken twice daily. The placebo phase involved a 400 mg dose three times daily of an inert capsule containing an inactive substance.

In June 2012, the scientists reported the   striking results.

Although there were no changes in calorie intake or exercise over the 22-week trial, the investigators found that all subjects experienced an impressive reduction in  body weight, BMI, and body fat during both the high-dose and low-dose phases of the study, but not in the placebo phase!After just 12 weeks  of administering 400 mg green coffee bean extract GCA three times a day over the course of the 22-week study, the scientists found that:

  • Weight decreased by over 17.6 pounds on average—with some subjects losing more than 22.7 pounds!
  • BMI decreased by an average of 2.92!
  • Body fat decreased by an average 4.44%, with some subjects losing 6.44% of their body fat!
  • Heart rate decreased by a significant average of 2.56 beats per minute!

The substantial anti-obesity impact was clearly reflected in the finding that a remarkable 37% of participants who were assessed as having pre-obesity (25-30 BMI) at the start of the study had their condition reversed to the  normal-weight range!

A study follow-up showed that, contrasting with food-restriction diets, a surprising 87.5% of the test subjects were able to maintain their weight loss after completing the study. No side effects were observed.

Exploring the Biochemical Mechanisms

Research into exactly how green coffee bean extract produces its dramatic pound-shedding effect is in its early stages. However, existing evidence indicates that this powerful coffee extract has the ability to safely decrease the intestinal uptake of glucose, fats, and carbohydrates—and reduce the absorption of   calories! Research shows that it also interferes with glucose transport and the production and storage of fats; and promotes utilization of glucose and breakdown of fats. Scientists speculate that its multiple   biochemical mechanisms may work to:

  • Inhibit the enzyme amylase, which would decrease the gastrointestinal tract absorption of sugar and calories
  • Interfere with glucose-6-phosphatase, an enzyme involved in creation of often surplus blood glucose from protein and fats
  • Suppress accumulation of hepatic triglycerides
  • Alter body-fat distribution
  • Downregulate fatty acid and cholesterol biosynthesis
  • Upregulate fatty acid oxidation and expression of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor alpha (PPAR-alpha), a key regulator of lipids and glucose
  • Interfere with glucose transport
  • Inhibit pancreatic lipase, an enzyme that breaks down fats in the digestive tract
  • Retard absorption of fats from the intestine, and activate fat metabolism in the liver
  • Enhance energy metabolism
  • Reduce lipogenesis and fat accumulation by downregulating sterol regulatory element-binding protein and similar molecules
  • Inhibit the enzyme alpha-glucosidase, which breaks apart complex sugars and enhances their absorption into the blood
  • Increase the signal protein for insulin receptors in liver cells, increasing insulin sensitivity and decreasing glucose levels
  • Antagonize glucose uptake in the proximal small intestine, shifting absorption to more distal regions of the small intestine, thus reducing overall glucose uptake
  • Promote synthesis of the homeodomain transcription factor IDX-1, which helps the insulin-regulating beta cells respond to increases in plasma glucose
  • Promote dispersal of the sodium ion (Na+) electrochemical gradient, in turn reducing glucose absorption
  • Enhance whole-body metabolism, as shown by greater consumption

Whatever the mechanism through which green coffee bean extract delivers its beneficial effects, it has been shown to have a unique anti-obesity benefit: it substantially reduces body weight and body fat—even without a change in exercise or calorie consumption.


Obesity increases the risk of chronic diseases and puts its victims at a 200-300% greater risk of death.3,4

The good news is that scientists have found that green coffee bean extract can intervene in a unique way to inhibit the process behind obesity. Its compounds can reduce levels of fat11-16 and glucose14,15,17-27 in the body—and can decrease the absorption of calories!10

In a recent, placebo-controlled study on humans, green coffee bean extract decreased weight by a remarkable average of over 17.6 pounds!28 And 37% of participants reversed their pre-obesity status back to the normal-weight range!28 These results confirm  that green coffee bean extract is a unique and potent intervention to halt obesity.
