On Thursday, Dr. Oz recommended the mega fat burner pure green coffee bean extract. Folks, this one is looking like the real deal. Dr. Oz first mentioned it a few weeks ago for blood pressure, and shortly after, Sundrops.com wrote about its efficacy for weight loss in the March 28 post “Dr. Oz’s Green Coffee Bean: A Powerful Tool For Weight Loss.”
Researchers found that overweight people lost body fat without having to diet, although they did stay physically active. Participants lost an average of 17.5 lbs and 16% body fat in 22 weeks. This is a huge loss in body fat, especially for a group of people who continued to eat the same diet that contributed to their being overweight in the first place.
Daily calories averaged 2400 per day for the participants, an amount which would normally cause many people to gain weight. The people in the study burned about 400 calories per day exercising.
How Does Coffee Bean Work?
The magic compound in green coffee bean extract is called chlorogenic acid. Chlorogenic acid helps burn body fat in at least two ways. One way is that it helps control the rise in blood sugar you experience after you eat food. A slower, lower rise in blood sugar stresses your metabolism less, keeps your cells from manufacturing as much body fat, and makes it easier to burn the body fat you already have. Chlorogenic acid may also inhibit the activity of an enzyme that breaks down certain carbohydrates in your digestive tract, leading to less sugar absorption from your food.
This type of metabolic change promotes belly fat loss.
The researchers tested two doses: 700mg and 1050mg, and found that 1050mg was slightly more effective than the 700mg dose. Dr. Oz recommends a dose of 800mg twice daily.
