Joy for java lovers: Dr. Oz has become a believer in the virtues of coffee for weight loss. Not just any coffee, though: he’s tuned into a recent study showing that green coffee beans can result in as much as 17.5 pounds lost in 22 weeks. The study used unroasted coffee beans (not the kind you sip at Starbucks!) to determine if they could hold the key to an inexpensive weight loss supplement.
In the study, 16 young adults who were overweight took either a placebo, a low dose of green coffee bean extract, or a high dose of the extract. They lost an average of 17.5 pounds in 22 weeks, with more than 35% of subjects losing more than 5% of their body weight. And they lost more weight when they were taking the pills than when they took the placebo. They lost more fat and weight when they took more extract. On average, they reduced their body fat by 16 percent. Try it by clicking here to order NatureWise Svetol Green Coffee Bean Extract Ultra Pure with GCA Natural Weight Loss Supplement, 90 Caps.
Joe Vinson, the University of Scranton chemist who conducted the pilot study, told the Los Angeles Times that “the findings should pave the way for more rigorous research on coffee bean extract’s effects. A larger trial involving 60 people is being planned.” He feels that the extract works by cutting down on the fat and glucose absorbed in the gut. It also might reduce insulin levels, which “would improve metabolic function. There were no signs of ill effects on any subjects,” the chemist added.
