What is Green Coffee Bean Extract?
Coffee beans are green before they are ever roasted, and in their natural green state they contain an antioxidant called chlorogenic acid.

Roasting the coffee beans greatly decreases the amount of chlorogenic acid inherent within the bean itself, which is why green coffee bean extract is so advantageous.

How Can Green Coffee Bean Extract Help You Lose Weight?
The Key is Chlorogenic Acid.
Reduces blood sugar levels.
Green coffee beans contain a powerful compound called chlorogenic acid that inhibits the enzyme glucose-6-phosphatase. This enzyme promotes the formation of sugar in the liver, thus inhibiting this enzyme results in lower blood glucose levels.
Less sugar in the blood means there is less sugar for the liver to convert into fat.
Decreases fat absorption and increases fat burning.
Various studies have proposed that chlorogenic acid not only slows the absorption of fat from food, but also increases the burning of fat for energy.
The result is lower fat accumulation and higher (non-jittery) energy levels, which in turn burns even more fat.
