  • Green Coffee Bean Pills

    Has anyone heard anything about the green coffee bean pills that are sold everywhere. They seem to be just another dietary supplement and not a real diet pill.

    Thoughts? Anyone tried them?

    Thanks!

    I just read about green coffee as a supplement and I'm very intrigued. I just checked out a website call drlindsey.com that sells green coffee. The website looks brand new, he sells a number of nutritional supplements. Anyone out there tried it?

      According to that drlindsey.com site posted above,

      Chlorogenic Acid [present in green coffee beans] works by inhibiting the release of glucose in the body while at the same time boosting the metabolism or the “burning” of fat in the liver. These two mechanisms combined work together to inhibit the absorption of fat and eliminate weight gain.
      So in one sentence the guy selling it says it boosts metabolism and thus fat burning...and in the next he says it eliminates weight gain, not processing of existing fat.

      According to wikipedia:

      This compound, long known as an antioxidant, also slows the release of glucose into the bloodstream after a meal.
      It just slows the release of glucose. So...possibly the only actual benefit is reducing a glycemic spike after eating certain foods?

      Also it could contribute to you shitting yourself. Wikipedia:

      It could be involved in the laxative effect observed in prunes.

        First off, chlorogenic acid is in all coffee beans/beverages. It is the main antioxidant found in coffee. Furthermore take a look at these links:

        Can Drinking Dark Roast Coffee Improve Your Health?

        Roasting coffee beans a dark brown produces valued antioxidants, scientists find

        Apparently it is the roasting process that produces the antioxidants in the beans. The more they are roasted, the more the antioxidants. If the chlorogenic acid is one of these said anitioxidants, you would expect the greatest benefits to come from the darkest brewed coffees, certainly not the green and unbrewed at all beans!

        I'm not saying that's true, just adding my own two cents about the contradicting information out there.
        "The cling and a clang is the metal in my head when I walk. I hear a sort of, this tinging noise - cling clang. The cling clang. So many things happen while walking. The metal in my head clangs and clings as I walk - freaks my balance out. So the natural thought is just clogged up. Totally clogged up. So we need to unplug these dams, and make the the natural flow... It sort of freaks me out. We need to unplug the dams. You cannot stop the natural flow of thought with a cling and a clang..."

          I agree with your conclusion. On a whim I just checked Wikipedia (I know, I know) for "coffee" and found this quote in the citation section:

          "Roasted coffees high in lipophilic antioxidants and chlorogenic acid lactones are more neuroprotective than green coffees".

            Tried it for a month, saw no benefit, from it and had no negative or adverse reactions to using it. Conclusion based on limited personal experimentation, the wife and decided we could use the money we'd spend on it towards some good fatty proteins.

              It's 'sold everywhere' because it apparently was recommended by Dr. Oz on one of his shows. And there are people who buy every supplement that he's paid to shill. That's enough reason to avoid it, IMO.

                Consuming green coffee made me realise I had major issues with highly allergenic histamine-promoting foods.

                  i looked in wikipedia as i got an email from one of the companies i get supplements off with a special.
                  Green coffee - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
                  what i got from that is the STUDY only had 16 ppl in and also it talks about it reducing the absorption of glucose and lowering the hyperglycemic peak which i reckon a decent paleo or primal diet will do anyways.

                    Fibers also slow glucose absorption and chlorogenic acid is also found in apples. So personally I would prefer just to eat soem green apples and get the benefits of the fiber, the chlorogenic acid and the malic acid in the apples.

                      Everything the paleosphere has taught me about plant toxins makes me very suspicious of consuming the raw form of something that people traditionally roast the crap out of. I refuse to believe there aren't going to be some unforeseen consequences lurking in there.

                        Green coffee beans are often touted as some amazing source of antioxidants, to which I counter with this:

                        Roasting coffee beans a dark brown creates powerful antioxidants

                        If the study they're writing about has any merit to it, it would seem that the DARKER your roast (think French and Italian roasts for max benefits - but any level of roasting increases benefits), the more bioavailable the antioxidants in coffee become. Therefore, drinking roasted coffee increases the amount of beneficial compounds in the beans as opposed to say, merely popping a few pills of unroasted beans.
