One of the recent studies on green coffee bean was published in January 2012 in the Diabetes, Metabolic Syndrome and Obesity journal. The researchers followed a group of 16 adults who supplemented with a special green coffee bean extract for 12 weeks. All 16 adults were considered overweight, as demonstrated by a BMI of greater than 25 (a normal BMI is between 18.5 and 25).
The extract the researchers used contained an ingredient called GCA, which contains a standard green coffee extract of total chlorogenic acids and other hydroxycinnamic acids that have been known to have antioxidant health benefits. Over the course of the study, the subjects lost an average of almost 18 pounds – this was 10% of their overall body weight and 16% of their overall body fat.
These amazing results were achieved without any dietary or exercise changes for any of the participants during the study. Every test subject completed the study and showed no negative side-effects at all from the green coffee bean.
