Caffein has a stimulant and diuretic effect.
Green coffe is based, among others, on antioxidants. The main polyphenols that are found in the grain are the chlorogenic acid and its isomers.
The green coffee extract exerts numerous beneficial effects related to the weight control, the reduction of fat absorption, the inhibition of fat acumulation, the fat metabolism, the type 2 Diabetes prevention and the antioxidant activity.
The main benefits of green coffee are therefore:
Weight Control: The green coffee extract promotes the loss of visceral fat. This is fat that exists in the tissues lining the abdominal cavity and surrounding the internal organs, which can lead to an increased risk of metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes Chlorogenic acid and caffeine found in the green coffee extract promote fat loss by blocking gastric and pancreatic lipase, which is the enzyme that breaks down triglycerides in order to be stored in fat cells of the body.
Antioxidant activity: The chlorogenic acid found in green coffee extract is a powerful antioxidant. Oxidative stress that occurs as a result of free radicals can lead to cellular degeneration and a number of diseases. Antioxidants neutralize free radicals and, in this case, it is believed that the chlorogenic acid is twice more effective than antioxidants in green tea and grape seeds.
Other benefits: Related to the benefits of green coffee to health studies are carried out continuously. In recent years we have seen that chlorogenic acid can reduce blood pressure and help protect the body against liver cirrhosis, atherosclerosis and rectal disease.
