Green coffee bean extract (GCA) has made a splash in the headlines recently for its impressive weight-loss properties. Green coffee beans are simply the raw, unroasted form of the average coffee bean. Raw coffee beans are low in caffeine and loaded with powerful natural compounds, including a high amount of a powerful antioxidant called chlorogenic acid which-

Burns glucose and stored body fat,

Reduces the absorption of carbohydrates (lowering blood sugar and insulin spikes), and

Improves cholesterol.

Chlorogenic acids are very important because they are believed to be the active compounds that help support healthy blood sugar levels, which are at the center of much of the research on the green coffee bean. Additionally, chlorogenic acids are incredibly powerful antioxidants, which protect against the ravages of free radicals in our bodies. Research has shown that antioxidants can support cardiovascular health, the immune system and much more. Experts recommend daily diets high in antioxidants to support overall health. So Go Green. Your body will thank you for it.
