Introduction to green coffee beans
Green coffee beans are seeds of the coffee fruit tree, native to Indonesia, Tanzania, Colombia, and Brazil.
These beans are green because they are raw and when roasted, they turn brown.
The roasting process turns coffee beans brown and eliminates the chlorogenic acid present in them.
Raw coffee beans are known to have higher levels of chlorogenic acid.
As a matter of fact, chlorogenic acid in green coffee beans is known to have positive health benefits and among those benefits is a significant reduction in excess body weight.
People often take green coffee bean-based supplements by mouth for curing obesity, high blood pressure, Alzheimer’s disease, and other bacterial infections.
Among those supplements is a green coffee plus.
What are green coffee beans?
Green coffee beans are raw coffee beans that have not been roasted.
They contain a high amount of chlorogenic acid, a chemical known for reducing weight in humans.
Apart from this, it helps reduce blood pressure in a considerable amount by helping keep vessel thickness at an optimum amount.
When it comes to weight loss, chlorogenic acid in green coffee cuts down blood sugar and cholesterol in the human body.
This then helps raise the metabolism levels and process.
What does Green coffee bean extract help control?
Research suggests that taking green coffee extract-based supplements (containing around 50 mg to 140 mg of chlorogenic acid) daily for up to 12 weeks can significantly reduce blood pressure in adults, especially those who are having mild or high untreated blood pressure.
Research conducted in a group of Japanese adults showed usage of green coffee extract-based supplements reducing systolic blood pressure by 5 and 10 mmHg.
Whereas, diastolic blood pressure was reduced by 3 and 7 mmHg.
For obesity, research reveals that adults suffering from it can take green coffee bean extract based supplements daily 5 times for 8 to 12 weeks. They hence lose an average of 2.5 to 3.7 kilograms of weight.
This is more than the amount of weight lost by taking a placebo or regular coffee by itself.
Green coffee bean extract based supplements are helpful in battling Alzheimer’s disease, Type 2 diabetes as well as other health conditions.
How to make green beans coffee?
To make green beans coffee, you must first find green coffee beans that are of good quality and provide good taste (as they can be unusually bitter).
They should be wet-processed to make sure they don’t have mold on them.
Then put them in a mesh strainer and rinse them with cold water.
Then transfer them to a pot on the stove. Add around 3 cups of water to those beans (they should be 170g by weight), put the lid on the pot and light up the stove.
Simmer the beans for 12 minutes over high heat.
Take the lid off the pot and reduce the burner’s heat down to medium. Stir them occasionally and gently so their papery chaff remains which has all the antioxidants.
Green coffee bean extract supplements are safe to use when taken appropriately orally.
Those taken in doses up 480 mg daily have been used safely for up to 12 weeks.
They however also contain a considerable amount of caffeine and can also cause calcium depletion in human bones and teeth.
